What jack do you use for your RZR?

Most floor jacks don't have the height and bottle jacks kinda suck because of their small footprint supporting the RZR. What jack do you use? I searched for the highest lifting jack and ended up with a bottle jack that goes a little over 19", but I still need to lower it onto a jack stand then adjust it even higher if I want to get the tires off the ground.

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

I use a 8 ton air over hydraulic long ram bottle jack. It has a fairly large footprint, and will lift about 42". Takes my rzr on 40s off the ground without the need for any blocks.

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

scissor jacks work well. collapse fairly small for storage and can even be picked up at wreckers for cheap. i was at a salvage yard that had a whole pile of them for $5 each

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

I use a Pitbull lift that I bought years ago for my Harley. I trust it to the point that I've left my RoadGlide on it for a couple of months at a time, and it stores well. Turns out it works on the RZR as if it was designed just for it. I love the dumb thing.

I have a Safe Jack recovery kit that I use. There are a ton of accessories you can get for it so I just started with the basic kit and will add other accessories as I need (can afford) them.

They have 15% off everything through 4/30 with code GEARUPO2017.

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

I just have the 6 ton recovery kit and it doesn't weigh too much. I would guess everything in the bag may be 10 - 15 pounds? The next thing I want to get is the base plate so it's more stable. The bag fits in my 8 gallon Action Packer with my other tools.

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

In the shop I use a floor jack with two 4x4 blocks then put jack stands under the buggy. On the trail I use a northern tool scissor jack.

Re: What jack do you use for your RZR?

Stopped carrying a jack. Was just to difficult to get the thing on level ground. When riding with others, use there winch to pull from either side of my rig to get the tire off the ground. If by myself, I carry a come along strap type to pull my rig from either side. Quite useful pulling rigs over when they flip in a tight trail.
