This RedRock 4x4 48-inch Extreme Recovery Jack is for those of you with an '87 and up Wrangler that are looking for a farm-style jack for those really difficult off-road recoveries, or possibly to do a little bit of winching if you get yourself into a bind where you need such a thing. Now, these are available in both red and black, of course I have the red on the table here with me, and the black, the only difference is the color, it's going to function exactly the same, and there are some other sizes of these available as well if you're looking for something that's a little bit smaller.Now, these jacks are going to be a little bit controversial in the off-road space. There are definitely some uses for them off-road, however these are going to be a dangerous piece of equipment. This is not something that you're going to wanna just use to change your tires in our driveway. Even a lot of off-road recovery situations can be done a lot more safely with a scissor jack, or a bottle jack, or some other type of lifting mechanism because these can be very, very unstable. All that being said, there are some situations when you're off-road that a farm-style jack like this is going to be the best recovery solution, and in that case you're gonna be glad you have this, you just have to be very careful while using it. All of these jacks are going to be built very similarly. These are going to be cast iron and steel, and a couple of different heights are available. This is the 48-inch version that can lift 7,000 pounds. There are some smaller ones that are a little bit easier to store, if you're interested in those instead. Now with this jack, because they can be a little bit dangerous to use, you do want to be very careful. I would definitely recommend doing some research before you actually install this on your Jeep, have it with you off-road so when you do use it, you know how to use it safely and you know how to use it properly. There really isn't an installation for this jack, you do wanna be able to store it somewhere in your vehicle that it is very well held down. There are some interior mounts, some exterior mounts, you can put this in a lot of different locations. If you are gonna put it outside, make sure you grease up the mechanism very, very well, it will pay dividends in the end, the weather can really beat on these, and when you do go to use it, you wanna make sure everything moves nice and freely. If you are gonna install it on the inside of the Jeep, again, make sure this thing strapped down and doesn't move. These are very heavy, and if you get into an accident or rollover, a flop situation off-road, you don't want this thing moving around, flying around on the interior of your Jeep, it can definitely do some damage or cause some injury. This recovery jack is gonna run you $80, which is right around the same price as a lot of the other ones on the market. I do think this one's pretty well-built, I think you are getting a good bit of value at that $80 price point. Like with any other tool, if you care of it, it will take care of you. So if you're looking for a farm-style recovery jack for your Wrangler, I definitely recommend taking a look at this one from RedRock 4x4 that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Came in poor condition
I understand that this is a product built to experience wear and tear on the trail, but I did not expect it to come looking as if it had already done so.
The jack came in a box that was too small for transport, and both the top and bottom were ripped and busted open. When moving the package from my porch a bolt fell out. The jack itself looked as if it had been used previously; paint had been stripped on all the wear points and was already starting to rust where exposed.
The jack was also missing a bolt.
I have experience with seeing two of these jacks (as a returned the first for a second) and both came in this condition: missing parts and already beat up.
Extreme Terrain customer support was very accommodating with my returns, so no complaints there, but save yourself the hassle and get something else.

Weak Handle Connection
This RedRock product ( I was sent a red Farm Jack ) has a weak handle connection at the jack body. The long handle is simply welded onto the jack movement device. It can't take much more than 200 lbs of force to break it off. I weigh 200 lbs and am 50 years old, and I broke it off with my body weight and strength trying to work on my Jeep.
I tried to purchase a Hi-Lift from Extreme Terrain, but the model I ordered was discontinued, so I got this instead. I have noticed since then that the Hi-Lift design has the long handle going into a solid socket at the lift mechanism. That is a much better design and will last much longer. Skip this RedRock product if you actually want to use it for anything. If you just want it to sit on the back of your truck or Jeep to make it look more rugged, then its a fine product.
Could I mount this jack on the Barricade Trail Force HD Rear Bumper w/ Tire Carrier (Item J20849)? If so, does Extreme Terrain sell a kit to make this possible? Thanks!
While there is not a direct bolt on that we offer we do have a few options. One option would be to bolt the jack to the spare tire with a mount such as this:
The mount at the link below can be used to assist you in mounting the RedRock 4x4 48 in. Extreme Recovery Jack to the rear of your Jeep.
The Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier would require the J100286 HD Hinged Carrier Accessory Mount in order to attach this RedRock 4x4 48 in. Extreme Recovery Jack. The Mount is linked below:

Growing up I always wanted a Jeep, from the day I started driving I spent my days behind the wheel of a Jeep branded vehicle, which has not changed.
