i have just read an article from a 1990 4x4 mag about an accessory to assist a high lift jack, it actuall fits over the exposed axle and designed to accept the high lift jack, this places the centre of lift directly over the problem of the bog etc, does anybody know if they still exist or were dumped as a bad invention??, it didn't look a bad idea, adrian.

Yes you can still buy them....I thing 4X4 warehouse sell them for about $65.

There are two types.

1. This type actually clamps arounf the hub of your wheel. It can only be used on wheels that have a protruding hub. Is not compatible with most alloy rims. The clamp is attached to the Jack with an extenssion from the lifting arm.

2. Is called a bumper bar attachment, I think, it is a hook and chain setup that was initially designed to be used on curved bumpers, where the jack could not reach. I have seen this attachment used on the rim, by hooking it throught one of the gaps in the rim and lifting from that.

Bore casing will do the same thing, my mate uses one and has never had a problem with it. Just slides over the hub.
