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.

PRO EAGLE

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

The optional vehicle mounts for the jack and extension are great for bringing your jack with you everywhere you go. Most of us do not think of a floor jack as a usable tool in the wilderness but with the large forward wheel and skid plate this jack works incredibly well on dirt and uneven surfaces.

Having the built-in extension on the floor jack is something you cannot put a price on! Not worrying that it is going to all come crashing down is so nice.

We would have had to use some combination of wood blocks to get our project JK up high enough when we installed the JKS suspension kit on it,but with the Pro Eagle jack, no need for balancing acts, just a solid extension to get the job done.

The Pro Eagle jack can extend up to 13″ allowing you get your truck up high enough off the ground without jacking off of the axle or suspension components.

Our project vehicle manager could not get enough of this jack, his yard had 32 vehicles. None of them are on concrete and most do not have good wheels. So when he is reorganizing vehicles, the Pro Eagle off road jack does not give him the headaches as a normal floor jack does.

The extension locks into place with a simple 90-degree turn.

The extension has a nice rubber pad to help grab sloped surfaces and to help prevent scratches.
