As we approach the coldest months, itâs a good idea to update...
If you own a truck, SUV, or Jeep, there's a pretty good chance you've also installed larger-diameter tires and a leveling kit or lift kit. These modifications increase ground clearance and improve off-road capabilities, but they also present some issues you may not have considered. That taller ride height means the barebones scissor jack that came with your vehicle might no longer provide enough elevation to change a tire. Regular floor jacks from the local auto parts store will do a little better, but what happens if you have a problem somewhere other than your driveway? Pro Eagle jacks are specifically built to provide an off-the-grid solution to this dilemma.
Compare modern trucks to those from 20 or 30 years ago, and you'll realize how much bigger, taller, and more off-road-capable new vehicles have become from the factory. However, jack design hasn't changed much in recent decades. Pro Eagle saw this as an opportunity to improve upon the conventional floor jack design, and make something specifically for those of us who like to get out and explore.
As seen in the video above, these jacks are used extensively by off-road racers, and feature several distinguishing features that improve their capabilities on surfaces other than pavement. The large non-pneumatic tires are designed to roll easily through dirt, gravel, rocks, and most other surfaces. The solid steel axles offer increased strength for lifting heavier rigs. Each jack comes with a built-in skid plate to keep it from sinking in soft dirt, sand, or mud. There's also an adjustable extension that provides an extra 8 inches of lift height when needed. Of course, the company says its jacks will also work just as well for regular maintenance in the garage.
Pro Eagle offers jacks ranging from 2-ton standard to 2-ton big wheel and 3-ton big wheel. All jacks come with the aforementioned off-grid-worthy features, and they are backed up by a 2-year full replacement warranty. You can even purchase 90% of the parts and pieces separately, if the need should arise. Each jack has an available mounting kit to keep it secured and locked in place while you are on the go.
