Question What are you guys using to jack up your cars on sand, trailheads, etc.

I currently throw my floor jack in my trailer with some pieces of wood so I can lift my RZR up to change tires between sand and dirt. With the long travel I have to put a fair amount of wood in there to get it to lift the tires enough to change them. I'm seeking an alternative. I've looked at the Pro-Eagle jacks which are nice but quite pricey. I've also seen the inflatable jacks which seem cool but I feel like the RZR would teeter on top of that especially if I'm swapping tires.

What do you guys use?

Re: What are you guys using to jack up your cars on sand, trailheads, etc.

I'm not exactly sure if it will help you or not as I don't have long travel, but I use one of these mounted to my floor jack to to lift my RZR. I put the pads under the front or rear arms and can lift each end without the suspension sagging or I can put it under each side and still get the whole side up high enough on mine to put it on wheel dollies. I'll try to snap a pic when I get home to give you an idea and measure the lift height.

I carry a scissors jack I got from a truck at the junk yard for $10. Also, I carry a small square of plywood to put under the jack to use in the sand. I carry a light Harbor Freight floor jack in the toy hauler.

These are made locally, but sure theyd be willing to ship. Called the sand jack. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/...863338017.html

Cheap small light floor jack that has the most travel you can find standard ...along with.. 2 ...4x4 blocks about 12 or more inches long for side to side stability... and One 8x8 or 6x6 block on top of the face plate of the jack ..will usually get it done. Point is bring blocks!! ...and the lightest floor jack with the highest extension

I bought this and welded a 20x12x1/4 steel plate to the bottom. I carry my 1/2 dewalt impact everywhere

I have been using an inflatable off-road jack for the last couple of years and I love it. It’s easy to use and works well on any terrain.

You can use it by yourself it just takes a little longer to get everything laid out straight.

I carry a HiLift jack. Works awesome for changing trailer tires, lifting the RZR to break the suction in mud holes/muskeg and also is a backup in case the winch dies. Heavy but 100% worth it.

Jack daddy.
Pro: lifts one tire at a time. Ie safer. No instability.
Con: Spendy. Only useful to vehicle equipt for it.

Exhaust jack
Pro: cheap, light, lift two tires at a time. Works well in soft sand.
Can use a compressor or co2 via a Schaeder valve, but a compressor would take quite a while to fill the bag.
Con: cheap. Bulky
I ruined the cone that attaches to the tail pipe doing too many back to back. Can’t get Chinese retailer to return emails.

Floor jack (without cool fixed extension or big fancy wheels)
Pro: ubiquitous, inexpensive
Con: heavy, needs platform, needs extension making them unstable/ unsafe

Winch or strap
Pro: light, secondary application for something you already carry.
Con: space constraints can make this difficult or impossible (think narrow trail etc).

Scissor jack
Pro: cheap, ubiquitous
Con: need a bunch of blocks to get it close enough to actually lift the UTV making it an unstable choice

I really like the jack daddy and will get another for my new RZR.

The exhaust jack has it’s place for swapping tires in the dirt like when transitioning from paddles to knobbies.

The floor jack and scissor jack are back ups that have their place. Honestly want a sand jack or pro eagle if only for the shop.

Winch or strap is a great option if done correctly and safely.
