    Depending on the situation your in I suppose, but I'd have both. As I don't trust a hi lift by itself, but I don't trust the bag too. Especially if you need to get under the car. In that situation, both used together would be better in my opinion.
    That's right Darren was holding the highlift and warning it could slip at any time

    A hi-lift at the best of times is very dangerous, but if used correctly can serve many purposes.

    Plus we had my winch out too for extra support from memory.

    I've got a Bushranger X Jack, and love it. Haven't used it in anger yet, but practiced a couple of times. Hahaha

    From memory, mine was around the $300 mark, and I had to buy the extra bit to fit onto the hose.

    Make sure you read ALL the instructions carefully on which ever one you decide on purchasing - before you use it.

    Apart from being able to use the highlift maybe on the bullbar or the camper trailer I probably should get an exhaust jack for the car. Good point raised!

    Unless the bull bar has high lift jack points it won't do well on a patrol.
    The exhaust /air jack is smarter.

    The only time I have ever consider purchasing a high lift jack was for the ability to use it as a hand winch and even that process is dangerous.
