I did a fair amount of off roading today. Went up a mountain peak today, looked stormy towards the east but sunny towards the west. Here's some pics.

nice pics!

Nate, I was thinking of getting a hi-lift jack at some point but i was wondering if our trucks have any good jack point on them to use it? I know rocksliders would allow it pretty easily but was just curious what you have found out with the stock setup.

Very nice pictures - I was just in Utah about 2 weeks ago and now those pictures have me wanting to go back. Utah's just awesome.

My main point of it is to use it as a winch. Otherwise I'd use the wheel hoist (since I have stock wheels), the trailer hitch, or tow hooks. I'd just use the hooks I have on a chain to lift it by the tow hooks.

Could you give a closeup of the jack mount. I never thought of doing this and may want to cop your design. This would make it easier to move between my trucks.
Thanks

Actually I did not design or build that. I have Handen Fabrication of Vail Arizona to thank for it. I just bought it off of their ebay store.
Just type in on ebay or google "hi lift trailer hitch mount"
Here's a link to the item page: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290558094803&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

Thank you Nate

I ordered mine yesterday, unfortunately it need 14 days to be fabricated and shipped because I have 1.25" hitch receiver

I witnessed a 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser go flying over the edge of a cliff. I did stop and helped him out and got the cops up there to retreive the car.

I feel bad for the guy. It was a very nice look land cruiser from what I could see. Modded and all.

Nice photos - too bad about the LC. Those shocks still look brand new! And the axle looked all nicely painted up - that's a real shame.

The guy was drunk and high off of spice (so my friend says). That was his boss's land cruiser too. Someone is in big trouble.
