Does anyone have any idea about welding jacking points onto the chassis of a 98 GU? I've only got a nissan bar which i'm told will bend very easily if I try to do it off there.. and im aware of using the reece hitch but just need something for the front end of the car.

Any suggestions or heard of how people have done it?

Cheers
Troy

Troy, instead of welding to the chassis, why not purchase the Hi lift jack adapter from any of the good 4wd stores, fits over the front hub and also is transferable to other trucks as/if required. If you can't find one in your local stores, I know the bloke that makes them and can provide his name and address etc if you require them. Hope this helps.

Are you planning on a winch at some stage, maybe save up for a which bar... no issues then.

The issue with the ones over the hubs, if your wheels are stuck down in a rut, which is when you want a high lift (thats their purpose in life), then you cant get it fitted..

I hadn't really planned on getting one.. but i've heard that it makes life much easier...

What sort of money would I be talking about?
