High Lifting Floor Jacks


Recommended Posts

I seem to run out of jacking height with some of my floor jacks when using them on my truck or jeep. 

 

So, I just modified my 3 ton aluminum jack to go to about 25" height.  I made it to bolt on attachements on the top pad like a saddle to cradle the axle tubes as well.

Here's the modified jack pictures.  

 

It's a 4" O.D. x 1/4" wall, 6061 T6 aluminum tube cut to about 5" in length.  There is a "hockey puck" I machined to fit nicely inside the aluminum tube, which I bored a hole with a counterbore for the bolt that anchors it to the jack.   The tube simply slides over the "hockey puck", then there is another piece that slides into the top of the tube and acts as the pad.  The top pad is drilled and threaded to bolt down attachments such as a curved piece to cradle an axle tube or a frame cradle.
