I've not used my kit yet, but assembled everything just to get an idea. The first issue I had, was that the box came with two left sided gloves. Making one useless. The carry bag is okay, but nothing is impresseive about it in terms of construction. I will have to say the same about the tree strap. It's just your basic strap. Now on to the good. What I am impressed with, are the tensioners and chain as well as the hooks and D-shackle. Everything seems well made, and the included hardware is also of high qualiy. We'll how they all hold up when put to use. If I were looking for a recovery kit, I'd probably build one up, instead of a package deal. You'd end up with a better kit in the end.
If you don't have a winch this could help you out of a jam.
The accessories in the Hi-Lift kit are very useful and make winching much easier with your Hi-Lift jack. On the downside, the gloves in my kit were poorly sewn with exposed holes. I had to exchange them for this reason and found this to be the case in two other boxes, forcing me to mix a set... [...] Also, an entire bolt was missing but I didn't discover that until later. Hi-Lift was quick to respond and sent me a replacement part on their dime, but it was a little disappointing to find multiple issues with the quality control of these kits.
Will this kit work on a smitybilt jack?

Gunmud, the Hi-Lift Jack Jack Repair Kit will not work for a Smittybilt Jack unfortunately. Hope this helps!

My jack will go up O.K. but if I try to lower it a click at a time, it falls completely to the bottom
Asked by Charlie from Climax Michigan on
Charlie, When lowering the jack with no weight it is designed to lower without ratcheting. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
