'The General' Off Road Kit
'The General'; Patriot Edition is the holy smokes do everything kit from SAFE JACK for the person that is serious about capability and safety. This 6 ton kit includes MADE IN THE USA Jack Pads and Extensions. We have paired them with a quality OMEGA brand bottle jack, packaged in a watertight, steel 50 Cal. Ammo Can. This kit includes all of the components of the 37M-SERGEANT plus a bottle jack base plate to provide floatation on soft ground and linkable wheel chocks to keep your vehicle from rolling when being lifted.
Ammo can measures: 11.5" x 6" x 7"
Like many others I was not sure about giving up my Hi Lift in favor of the Safe Jack system. The Hi Lift presented challenges in terms of safety, stability and storage. I drive a lifted Tacoma and so a jack system beyond original equipment was always a mandatory consideration as the three inch lift made the original equipment inadequate for changing flat tires.
My first use of the Safe Jack system involved lifting the tongue of a horse trailer to align with the ball of the rear bumper hitch. The Safe Jack proved to be ideal for this challenge as the jack extensions allowed me to bring these objects into alignment. I continue to have some reservations about the size and strength of the base plate that is provided for the bottle jack. I do not like the mounting methodology. It is awkward and less than positive. On first use the base plate did not have sufficient surface area to support the bottle jack and began to tilt sideways into the ground. This under a relatively small (400 lb. tongue weight) .
My base plate is now bent as a result of this way below maximum load and the tension created by the base plate, the tongue weight and the instability of the surrounding soil. I think that improving the interface between the jack and it’s base as well as increasing the surface area and strength of that base would move your product from being a very good idea to being the obvious solution to jacking issues.
Very heft jack and extensions. I haven’t used it yet. It is exactly what I was looking for. It will work on the tractor, lifted truck etc. The jack base plate is strange and not what I expected and reason for four stars instead of five.
I haven't used it yet, but this kit looks amazing. Everything is well made and looks like they will stand the test of 4WD. Purchasing was easy and shipping was fast.
As I have had this Jack for less than a month, I have only tested it in a sterile environment. All items arrived as advertised, and very well packed. Thus far, I am very pleased.
is something no sane person would ever say.. Having picked up The General kit , I do want to hover near flat tyre-rs and open this kit up... Materials are well made , heavy, sturdy.. The case is ideal to store everything , well made, good heavy clasp. ( Accept that there will be lots of noise from the kit when you just throw the accessories into the case ). Stop reading this go get one.
