Stock FJ - Jack Points?

I have a stock FJ with rock rails and tow package. I got stuck in the mud last week and had problems finding a place where I could use my Hi-Lift jack without damaging my truck.

I used the hitch to lift the rear wheels up.

I have a tried to lift the front wheel but the tire is recessed and the jack scrapped the fender. Would a 2x4 or 4x4 between the jack and the tire work to move the jack away from the body?

Also, can you lift the truck on the rockrails? That would make recovery a lot easier.

Re: Stock FJ - Jack Points?

You can get a slider adapter from Overland XT or wabFab for the sliders, also there is an attachment called Lift Mate that has hooks for your rims. Don't take this the wrong way, If you havn't already done it, youtube search the hi lift operation and maybe the options I mentioned. It is a wonderful tool, but it can harm or kill you.

Re: Stock FJ - Jack Points?

If you get a receiver hitch D Ring Shackle you can use the Hi Lift there as well.

Thanks,

Don't get wab fab. They literally lake 6months to complete orders. I'm not alone in this experience.

If you are planning on wheeling a lot got yourself some sliders that come out a little bit so that putting a high lift on them is not such a sketchy operation.

All it would take is a small shift of the vehicle on the stock slider to ding the body paneling.

I'd have some concerns about lifting the FJ by the trailer hitch. The hitch may be rated at 5000 pounds for towing but tongue weight is rated at 500 pounds I believe so lifting at that point would also be rated at 500 pounds if I'm correct.

I've never tried it personally but saw Bill Burk do it in his "Getting Unstuck" video so I figured it was a viable option. As with any Hi Lift operation a great deal of care should be taken.
