Wait, stop, let the jack down, the block is falling out. These words and phrases are all too common when you are using a floor jack to lif t your truck up. Or, you are a safety third type guy and you just say, “Watch that jack, that block could fall if you look at it wrong!” (Not recommended.) It is just part of life when you drive and work on tall trucks. Most of us have a block of wood we kick around the garage whose only job in life is to get the jack up higher. Well, it turns out there is a better way then trying to balance a block of wood on top of your floor jack.
The Pro Eagle Off Road floor jack is designed with lifted trucks in mind. It is a two-ton jack that features an extension, skid plate, and optional mounting brackets. One of its best features is the adjustable extension that will give you up to 13″ of height on top of the jack. The aluminum extension securely locks into the top of the jack with a simple twist. This greatly reduces the worry about your improvised extension falling over and crushing you. It has a hitch pin design to adjust the height of the extension. The bottom of the jack is covered with a skid plate which helps keep the jack stable on top of loose terrain. It also makes maneuvering the jack over uneven surfaces much easier. The optional vehicle mounts allows you to bring your floor jack into the depths of the wilderness very conveniently. This finally gives us another option over the normal trail off-road jack.
This aluminum jack weighs in at about 52 pounds, and the cost is about the same price as any other floor jack that does not have all the cool features of the Pro Eagle Off Road jack. www.proeagle-products.com
