Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

@FJFool can you drill a hole in the wing nuts and safety wire them?

Didn't know they made them. Good idea, I use a set of water pumps anyway to tighten and loosen...

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

HiLifts are evil... and grossly overrated.

Best day ever was when I took that rusty farmer's jack off my rack (HiLift Extreme). Replaced with hydraulic jack stand (UniJack), smaller, safer, far superior to operate on the trail or in the garage, and stows inside. I will usually pick it over my floor jack, one operation to lift and lock on stand-secure.

For camp entertainment ask a HiLift fan to demonstrate winching with a dogging chain using a HiLift.

Save the HiLift for mending fences, what it was intended for (and ridiculous YouTube training videos).

Finally finished my custom shovel and axe mount. Only cost me around 50 bucks and seems very secure. Testing for security and wind noise tomorrow.

I didn't safetywire, no flex, the wingnuts come up pretty tight.

The batteries in the aircraft that I've worked on were held in by two drilled wingnuts. Instead of safety wire they had a long thin spring that hooked in the holes. Very quick and easy to install/remove.

I dunno, my hilift has gotten me out of the sh1t more times than I can count. Pop-offs, stuck down to the frame rails... hilift & maxtrax - what a combo.

2. Mounted Maxsa recovery tracks with some custom fab'ed mounts...
Love the tracks mounts

Did you purposely color match to the rig, or did it just work out that way? Just wondering if I'm the only one who does crap like that
