Consumer Review
Terrible Jack, Falsely advertised Warranty
This is one badly made jack combined with false advertising on their Lifetime warranty.

Jack came in quickly from amazon. Looked pretty. Made in China. I did the bleed routine but found the first 1/4th of the lever movement was flat spot/ free play, and didn’t do any actual lifting. I attributed this to a quirky jack and it didn’t bother me much especially due to the lifetime warranty. If it wasn’t for the warranty, it would’ve gone right back. Jack worked great otherwise though the force required was a good bit more than any other Jack I’ve had, even with the long lever. It was way more effort than the $100 Torin Race Jack sold here on amazon. The effort itself didnt bother me, but gave me the feeling that the leverage was wrong and the piston assembly was under undue stress. Kinda like it was trying to lift more than it should per stroke to aid quicker lifting. I could feel the lever bending, something Ive never experienced in any of the jacks Ive used before. All the…

GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!! Which just might happen!
Your life could depend on this kit, YIKES! I believe in over building anything I use. So what’s wrong with this kit. Only grade 43 chain, maybe, has an L4 stamp, 3/8″ hooks, which aren’t stamped with a grade rating at all, 5/8″ shackle(probably OK). I use grade 7 chain and 3/4″ shackles for my CJ7, weight, probably between 3700-4000lbs.
In assembling the winch tensioner, the hole is too far back in the casting to get the bolt thru. The width of the casting is too narrow to readily accept the chain link, didn’t allow for the weld on the link! After forcing the link into the casting, the second link is firm against the nose leaving a good 1/8″ to go to get the bolt in. I ground a small notch in the casting to allow the second link to seat itself a little deeper. Being as how you are going to be standing in line with the straps,chain,etc., the weakest link had better be the shear pin in the jack, ONLY!! You don’t want hooks, chain,etc. breaking under load, I don’t want to walk out…
