The 8 Best Off Road Jacks

We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Every Jeep meets its match once in a while, but getting stuck is part of the fun of off-roading. If your wheels are spinning, a tire has popped, or your rock crawler is pointing straight towards the sky, you’ll need some kind of mechanical help to get back on the trail. Certain jacks work better than others for intense 4×4 environments, so we’ve gathered the best options for your adventures. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

8. Strongway High Lift

The dual-stage construction of the Strongway High Lift gives it a lift range of about 8″, which is particularly good for such a compact tool. It may not hold up underneath the heaviest vehicles, though, because it’s rated for only two tons.

  • Only 6 inches tall when collapsed
  • Coated in dirt- and rust-proof paint
  • Shorter life than single-ram designs

7. Pro Eagle 2

The Pro Eagle 2 looks quite similar to what you’d see in an auto shop, with one main difference: its high-impact, composite wheels can handle loose terrain, like rocks and gravel, without sinking, making it easy to raise any 4×4.

  • Provides great leverage
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Quite heavy and cumbersome

6. Powerbuilt All-In-One

In the unfortunate event that you need to make repairs in the field, the Powerbuilt All-In-One will give you space and keep you safe until the work is done. A combination hydraulic lifter and safety stand, you won’t have anything to worry about with this under your truck.

  • Sturdily locking safety bar
  • Only a 3-ton capacity
  • Base isn’t ideal for uneven ground

5. Torin Big Red

The Torin Big Red is basically an everyday bottle jack, and the top models can hold up to a massive 50 tons. It’s not the most versatile option, but it’s simple to use and meets ASME safety standards, and it can definitely help you out of a jam.

  • Durable drop-forged steel alloy
  • The most affordable choice
  • Won’t fit into very small spaces

4. Hi-Lift Cast/Steel

The Hi-Lift Cast/Steel is one of the most talked-about tools in rock crawling, and for good reason. It boasts by far the highest lift of any jack, and it has high-strength, stamped-steel parts in all the right places, so it will never break.

  • Affixes easily with available mounts
  • Comes in 4-ft and 5-ft sizes
  • Tested to lift 7000 lbs

3. Strongway Stubby

The Strongway Stubby is a low-profile model that fits into spaces as small as 7 inches. It doesn’t have the highest lift range, but its hydraulic operation provides an incredible mechanical advantage when you just need a little extra clearance.

  • Durable grease-resistant finish
  • Reliable 20-ton rating
  • Long-lasting large-bore cylinder

2. Bushranger X-Jack

In case you’re concerned about extra weight, the Bushranger X-Jack is the lightest way to get your Jeep off the ground. While you wouldn’t normally look to a balloon to lift a two-ton vehicle, it does a fantastic job — just keep it away from sharp edges and hot pipes.

  • Fits into some very tight crevices
  • Inflates via exhaust or compressor
  • Cone adapter fits most tailpipes

1. Hi-Lift X-treme

A nice upgrade to the most popular beam-type option, the Hi-Lift X-treme offers a number of high-end features, like an all-weather-resistant powder coating, and a zinc-plated head that turns the tool into a winch, clamp, or spreader in a pinch.

  • 60-inch model has an unmatched range
  • Attachment is removable via wingnut
  • Lasts a lifetime without corroding
