I use/sell the pro eagle jack.I mean, we're only a few years out from highway repairs and fueling
But in all reality, how "fail proof" is a single jack, on dirt, supporting ~5K lb pounds with guys pulling on 100lb tires?
I feel ya, but it the nascar guys can screw it up on pavement (and they do it about 50 times more per year than a TT team) I'm sure it happens to the dirt guys. BTW-Just came across this.I use/sell the pro eagle jack.
It's legit. 2-ton, 2 year warranty, integrated skid plate. Lightweight, and comes with a 5-8 inch extension. Visit my sales trailer at any race and I'll show it to ya. $250.00
Got a big wheel one also.
No, those aren't lawn mower wheels. Theyre composite and actually stronger than the jack. $360

I think both fox and king make the built in jack setup. Prolly some others do also. My shameless plug was to say that there are legit jacks out there. Lifting a whole vehicle up at once is sketchy. We have lifts at work with all kinds of safety features. And nobody can be under a jacked up truck without it being on jack stands.I feel ya, but it the nascar guys can screw it up on pavement (and they do it about 50 times more per year than a TT team) I'm sure it happens to the dirt guys.

That's the kind of setup I was thinking about, bags on a big sled. The AGM kit has been around for a while but not rated near what a full TT lift would need. The physics of lifting one side to use the leverage to shift the weight to the static side of the vehicles is different than a full lift. Depending on the displacement and drive config a Dakar T1 spec car is 1000 to 2000 lbs lighter than a TT.Airbag/nitrogen system maybe?
And it would be annoying and a pain to transport, set up, and use I bet. Basically it would be easier to just drive
