Can you guys post some pictures of floor jacks that have been modified for use in the dez? I have seen some real nice units out ther but don't have any pictures to "borrow" ideas from. I even remember spotting a couple that were fabbed up to ride on the receiver hitch between pits.

John,

Who made that jack ? What are the dimensions ? Is it too big to throw in the back of the truck?

What also works good is putting the big tires on the back and a skid plate on the front so you don't have to squish the front tire to jack up the rig. Just push down on the handle and the skid plate lifts off the ground to move it...Curt

The skid plate idea is nice but then you have to carry it around. I am using solid rubber tires to avoid the "squish" as well as constantly having to worry about deflated tires. I am looking for ideas of how to fab up the axle mounts and connecting the unit to my receiver hitch without having a huge protrusion from one side. No reason to re-invent the Monster Jack. But I will if I must!

I'm not a fab guy, but couldn't you make something that goes into the reciever that has a flat plate for the jack to sit on. Put some type of straps or clamps that go over the body of the jack to hold it to the plate. This way you wouldn't have to do anything to your jack at all. A piece of square tubing to fit the reciever, a flat plate welded to it, and then the clamps. Sounds simple enough if you have basic fab/welding skills.
