JeepsNeeds DLA - The D-Lift Adaptor for Hi-Lift Jack
[for off-road use only]
Just installed that awesome new lift kit and big tires on your off road rig and now your factory jack is rendered useless on the trials.
So you purchase a Hi-Lift ® jack but there seem to be no real safe lift points that one can securely attach the Hi-Lift ® jack to the vehicle. Sure, you could just pick any spot on your aftermarket powder coated steel bumper or the rock rails, but once you damage the powder coating on the bumpers or the rock rails, the rusting will start in no time! Not to mention the perceived dangers of the Hi-Lift ® jack slipping out from under your vehicle.
Introducing the JeepNeeds D-Lift Adaptor (DLA), the safer way to jack up your vehicle! Utilizing the D-rings on your aftermarket bumper as the lift point, the JeepsNeeds DLA is designed specifically for the D rings to slide into the adaptor and lock into place via a captured hook. The 2" diameter grooved poly top piece provides the operator the additional flexibility in securing the Hi-Lift ® jack on to the tubular rock rails, tubular bumpers and any flat surfaces under vehicle as lift points.
The JeepsNeeds D-Lift Adaptor is constructed out of laser cut 3/16"cold rolled steel, bent into shape as a one piece design for maximum strength and rigidity, power coated in bright yellow (among other colors), and MADE IN THE U.S.A.
DLA Patent Number: 9,850,115
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE ON VEHICLES NO LARGER THAN A FULL SIZED 3500 PICK UP TRUCK.
ALWAYS PRACTICE SAFE JACKING PROCEDURES, SUDDEN LATERAL SHIFT ON THE VEHICLE MAY CAUSE INJURY/DEATH AND OR DAMAGE TO THE JACK AND ADAPTOR.
The DLA currently only fits the 3/4" D-ring with 7/8"pins (standard D-ring).
Instruction Manual for the JeepsNeeds D-Lift Adaptor.
Prior to purchasing the DLA, please check the measurements of the jack runner/ tongue on your Hi-Lift ® jack, confirm that the runner/tongue measures out to 4-5/8 from the back to the tip. The older models have a shorter runner/tongue and will not work with the the DLA.
Farm jacks that are not Hi-Lift ® brand.
The DLA's are specifically designed to fit the Hi-Lift ® brand jack, however, with a slight modification the DLA's will work with the farm jacks sold at Tractor Supply store or Chinese manufactured jacks (if you choose to support Chinese economy).
All that is required to make the DLA work with the non- Hi-Lift ® brand farm jack is to enlarge the hole on the runner/tongue. By saddling the DLA on to the farm jack and looking though the locking pin hole, you will see the small obstruction (misalignment of the hole on the jack runner/tongue in relation to the locking pin hole on the DLA) , drill or file the obstruction and you are ready to go.
