High lift Jack.
I remember seeing one in xtreme_power's red/silver Landrover Defender at the 2007 speedrun in Mumbai.

Superb, thats a great looking Jeep. Lightforce are the best lights offroad. I had a combination of Warn and Dick Cepek on my SWB Prado but one of my marshlas Abraham Anson had Lightforce on his Jeep Wrangler TJ, they were awesome in the desert night drives.

What engine do you have on this flame orange jeep ?


The red-ladder type of thing is a Hi Lift jack. It raises a vehicle if stuck offroad so that some sand or tracktion material can be filled below the free spinning wheel. What is not visible in the picture is also a square base that comes with it.

The Brit gadedboys love it, but I have never found it too useful, I use Air lift jacks instead or usually a tug from my Kinetic Energy Tow rope ( Magic rope ).

I have one of these. But, everyone's scared to use it. They're worried about stresses on the differential and chassis.

since she has gone to goa, once im there i shall click a picture of her rear compartment,
the emergency kit i have assembledis a dream to have
also my waffle boards are there, which are great for slush

for these high lifted jeeps, the hi-lift jacks are most suitable cause my other hydraulic dont have so much lift and i have to end up putting a stone or other platform under them

the engine secret shall be out soon with pictures

Hey guys Allan's jeep got done in 4 days but looking at all of us go BONKERS theres only one thing to say '' WE JUST GOT OVERHAULED'' . Great work man allan i think you just gave us a feel of what the guys getting their vehicle overhauled in a week must be feeling in Overhauling.

P.s. :-I am sorry if someone does not agree with me using "us" in the above post. If so, moderater you can delete this post.
