    i'm in need of a high lift jack, tow rope and recovery shackles. i need to go on the super inexpensive side of things, other wise i'll end up just buying shackles and only wheeling with guys who are willing to let me borrow their recovery stuff if need be. can someone help me?

    I have a Harbor Freight farm jack. It has worked fine for me and is fairly cheap. I don't know a price off hand though....

    Yeah, you'll max out a 48" one pretty fast and wish you had the 60".

    my uncle gave me his old 48" hylift jack and it barely lifts my truck up enough . I guess it's better than nothing . I think the Colstal Farm & Feed in OC has both sizes of farm jacks and they are pretty cheap . I carry a few big heavy military recovery chains . I know I should good some straps but the chains were free . Don't get the HF straps :mad: . The suck . I've watched them rip apart with ease . check the hawk shops :D .
