    Can anybody tell me which High Lift Jack ( red handle or black handle) is the best one?? I know we talked about this the first time Frizz had to use his at Blazerfest but I just don't remember what the answer is.

    I have the HL-604 (60")
    and it's great. Bigger is better.

    Black Handle and Red Body is best. All cast parts, not some cast and some stamped.

    Yep. The black handle and red body is what you want.
    <a target="_blank" href=http://summitracing.com>Summit Racing</a> sells them for 60 bucks. They have all the accessories too.

    I was hoping people were going to say the black handled ones cus thats the one I own,LOL. By the way I paid $48 and it is the shorter of the 2. I may get the 60" if I ever get revolvers so I can lift it high enough to do any good.

    Keep a Peice of chain in the truck and before you lift chain the axle to the frame. I can't get my truck off LEVEL ground with the 48 without the chain. I don't want to use the 60 because of where I mount my winch I'd be dragging it on over passes.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    It depends on where you lift from...I have a hard time lifting the rear of mine off the ground on level ground too with the 48". I just set the jack nearer to the middle of the bumper and it will work. Chaining the axle is best though...
