I am a huge fan of my hydra-jack. Super simple to operate, stows easily (though you may want to get the long version if you're running big tires and lift.) Is it worth the money? For me, yes because I am interested in lightweight and compact recovery solutions and I've had some bad experiences with a Hi-Lift jack but I won't fault the jack so much as my poor recovery planning.

However, my view is that it's better to be well trained with a problematic tool than it is to have the best tool and lack of experience. I'm still learning. . .
I was going to link the hydra-jack as I think they are kinda cool. The way it adjusts seems kinda chintzy though. Has it given you any problems?
