With my bumpers it lifts no problem, but I ordered it with a bunch of extras so I can lift by the wheels or the bumper with a bumper attachment. I can use it as a winch too :thumbsup:

This High Lift Jack is pretty much a multipurpose jack and a standard for the off roader to carry around, you can use it like a come along or powerpull. I've used mine on my Jeep's bumper and rocker guards to get it up but with the long travel coil suspension on my Jeep it pretty much leaves the tire on the ground and I have to use a regular hydraulic bottle jack to take off a tire & wheel.

Do you have the 48 or the 60 inch? I changed all four of my wheels with the bumper lift no problem except for the kickout I mentioned.

Re: 1962 GMC 305V6 4WD Slow DD Build - Cecilia (Pic Heavy)
 
Mine is the 48 inch jack but even so at a overall width of 59 inches I am limited to what I can mount on my Jeep. Considering I've got 8 inches of lift, 35 inch tires and long travel coil spring suspension I think even a 60 inch jack won't quite cut it.

Up around these parts we call them "handyman" jacks. They can be pretty precarious to use sometimes especially if you are trying to do something rediculous alone! An absolutely required tool for truck guys though. Can't believe that some new ones come with a plastic foot!

Here's mine I've had for decades, 48". I welded up a bigger plate that would saddle the foot on it many years ago but can't find it now. Was probably stuck in the mud and I forgot to dig it out. I welded the handle into it also so it could never get pulled out and used for a cheater pipe or something and destroyed or not put back.

I like that rubber deal in the pic, Fetch, that holds the handle in the folded up position. I wrap a bungee cord around mine a few times.

I was asked about my future plans in another thread. I'm going to post them here to kinda be a guide for myself and you guys. Here's what I'm wanting to do if everything goes smoothly...
  • Finish my fence building
  • Fix whatever's popped up to make her not start. Embarrassed me at Lowes this weekend :(
  • Pull bed off again now that I don't need it every weekend
  • Finish rebuilding the Rockwell T221 Transfer Case
  • Change fluids and seals on front and rear differential
  • Paint everything with Por 15 under there to keep it safe from the rust monster
  • Paint the bumper and put some bedliner in foot areas to look more modern.
  • Put the bed on some kinda stands so I can weld up holes, beat out dents, and...paint? Maybe.
  • Remove old wood and the rusted through strips, replace both.
  • Put my fenders back on so she doesn't look like a little girl with her skirt tucked in her drawers in the back.


I may have posted this already so sorry if I did :)
Fence building is going from this

It uses 2x4s and decking boards for the planks and supports, and big ol' fat ground treated 4x6's sunk 2' 6' in concrete for the posts, except for the big gate posts that are all cedar 6x6's, 10 ft long. The decking boards are shrinking as the treatment evaporates off of them from the factory so I'll have to move them to fill in the gaps once they're all dry in spring. You know, just snug them up again. I should end up with about 4 more boards worth of width the way they're sucking up! :ahhhh:

And here's my baby in her new stable. See the tires? They don't look too different. I'm happy with how easy they turn too. It's a noticeable difference.

Very nice (and stout) fence there Fetch. Like you said once before, a guy should always have a place to lean a wheel or a ladder against. But in looking at your to-do list, did I miss something in the rebuild thread or....what happened with the knock in Cecilia's motor?

Foley,
Near the Rubicon

Re: 1962 GMC 305V6 4WD Slow DD Build - Cecilia (Pic Heavy)
 
Oh it's still there Foley, you didn't miss anything. :)
I didn't add it because I wasn't planning on spending any massive time on it other than looking at the piston connectors to see if they're loose. If they are, I'd work on fixing that.

But if they aren't and it's something way more serious like pistons that wobble in the cylinder I planned to just drive it as it is until she quits then I can put the spare 305 in.

I know I can't buy pistons or rebuild parts so putting a lot of time into a blown engine isn't going to happen, though I'd like the experience.

Hey, are any of you guys noticing that after turning wrenches for a while your fingers get fat? Maybe it's just me, but my wedding ring doesn't really fit anymore. Maybe it's wrenching, maybe it's doughnuts. :lolsmack2:

I was afraid of that. Guess I'm going to live on blubber this winter!

BTW you guys in the south hold on to your hats. The weather's 45 degrees with a 30 mph wind and it's heading your way! Sure glad I made me a log-dog to split some wood!

I'd have s'mores tonight, but Andice says I'm too fat so I guess I'm just threading sticks for the babies.

Look at me from the side, do I look fat to you?

The powder puff says bundle some up and send it her way, Dac LOL

Its 9 degrees today and the only thing that keeps me moving around is the thought that it'll kill off the bugs for spring. I hope so!

Oh, and we had some birthdays so we ran out real quick and took our birthday pics. No step to step on right now so the Powder puff is on the ground but at least we got it before the temps got too low to stand outside

Yeah I didn't think Jeannie would hammer someone unless it went way too far. She's rapped me on the knuckles from time to time but it's always just a friendly reminder to follow the rules and maybe deleting one of my um....more excitable posts. :D

I had to go back and look at them but it says this
I want each and every one of you to know that we will never ban a member outright without several warnings.

So I guess he got read bad real fast. Jeannie seems pretty patient putting up with stuff (and thank you for that if you're reading this!).

The problem with spray can paint is it's heavily watered down with solvents in order for it to be sprayable from a can, in no time at all it fades and loses it's durability from exposure to sun light.

Well dang it. I KNEW spraypainting was a bad idea. Ugh.

I invested in a few small cans of por-15 this winter to try again. I'm going to use a brush with it. I hate having to media blast it all over again though. Do you know if it's OK to paint the inside under where the tire goes too? I didn't last time but I might this time to fend off any rust monsters.

Just remember, POR-15 cannot be somewhere with direct sunlight contact, it doesn't last long in the light.

I've used POR-15 in the past as well, after 3 months of exposure the gloss turn chalky flat, so yes it is affected by sun light. Also when using it, it is extremely important to clean your paint gun thoroughly because this stuff is like epoxy and it will literally glue the paint cup to the rest of the and you won't be able to take the gun apart. I have a can of it that I used just once and now the lid is glued shut.

Hi Bigblockv6, if that can of POR-15 still seems to be liquid inside and you want to use more, try punching (don't drill obviously) a round hole in it somewhere, to open it up and if there is still good paint left, get a screw the size you want and coat the threads with a little vaseline and screw it into the punched hole. You MAY be able to remove it as needed. Works on sign paint without any lube, and I understand POR is a different animal. I have done it with automotive paints and had good luck too. The possibility exists that if you can clean out the groove in the can pretty good and the lip on the lid and a little coat of ATF or vaseline will allow the lid to come off when needed. It is still an oil-base type of paint so a little oily residue will dissolve into it without adverse affect.

Yeah you told me that once before too-- Sorry! Just trying to give some tips I've learned after 30+ years of sign painting.

Just poked a hole in the POR-15 can and it's thicker than molasses, I may reduce it with some paint thinner but it's no big loss for half a can that's only 1/4 pint size. I've got some new stuff called "Zero Rust" that's supposed to be everything POR-15 is and more.
