maybe the jeepers can use this idea , seems like a very cheap alternative to the hi lift jack.

This can be found on similar rigs used for borewell jobs. Ones that do drilling have four such jacks on all ends, used to stabilise the rig. This particular jeep must have atleast two similar jacks on its rear.

Well it will stay on until it is mechanically operated. If you fit in a motorised hydraulic operated pump i am sure it will be nicked sooner or later.

I especially like the part of "its only for your jeep and can help NONE else!!!"..

With this kind of setup not only the jeep installed can only use, also it can lift the only the place it is fitted. Hence leaving us offroader no use with it.

The hi-lift jack comes handy in any situation and the applications are wider and you can lift most part of the jeep.
