I HATE/refuse to carry a HiLift jack.
Refusal to accessorize?? The HiLift isn't just a Jack, it's also a fashion statement.

So true!!! And a dangerous one at that... As a woman who at times wheels alone, I don't feel I have the kind of upper body strength to operate it safely, let alone remove & replace on the roofrack (unwise location IMO). With great/safe alternatives available I see no reason to have one, yet it seems to be all the rage - with women - to have one mounted up top, with color-matching neoprene cover...making a "statement"....rant over

You can be honest. Men do it too!

Yes but they have the strength to manage them, and "usually" aren't trying to protect a $100 manicure (NOT me!!!)

Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

I'm with you on that decision Deb..I was eyeing up the same exhaust jack you're getting..looks like it could be handy when you get high-centred especially in snow. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it when you try it

Au contraire. They like to buff and shine in California

Things that can swing down from up high is not a good thing as I found out LOL. I think it is also good that you know your limits.

Like said above, I think they could be worth a fortune in mud, sand, and deep snow conditions.

Re: What did you buy today (FJ related items)?

(10) 5-star reviews on Amazon. Not sure how these will do. They're a type of thermoplastic but very stiff when compared to the oem rubber and energy suspension poly D-bushings I've used before. Made in Merica! Excited to install them as my OEM ones are 10 years old and cracking

How much blue is on your undercarriage? When you scrape rocks, do you leave VB behind as your signature "bazross was here"??
