Jeep Wrangler RedRock 4×4 Recovery Jack Spare Tire Mount (1987-2017 YJ, TJ, JK) Review


This RedRock 4×4 48-inch Extreme Recovery
Jack is for those of you with an ’87 and up Wrangler, that are looking for a farm-style
jack for those really difficult off-road recoveries or possibly to do a little bit of winching
if you get yourself into a bind where you need such a thing. Now, these are available in both red and black. Of course, I have the red on the table here
with me. And the black, the only difference is the
color. It’s going to function exactly the same. And there are some other sizes of these available
as well if you’re looking for something that’s a little bit smaller. Now, these jacks are going to be a little
bit controversial in the off-road space. There are definitely some uses for them off-road. However, these are going to be a dangerous
piece of equipment. This is not something that you’re going to
wanna just use to change your tires in your driveway. Even a lot of off-road recovery situations
can be done a lot more safely with a scissor jack or a bottle jack or some other type of
lifting mechanism because these can be very, very unstable. All that being said, there are some situations
when you’re off-road that a farm-style jack like this is going to be the best recovery
solution. And in that case, you’re going to be glad
you have this. You just have to be very careful while using
it. All of these jacks are going to be built very
similarly. These are going to be cast iron and steel. Again, this one is red. They also have them in black. That’s really the only difference between
the two, and a couple of different heights are available. This is the 48-inch version that can lift
7,000 pounds. There are some smaller ones that are a little
bit easier to store if you’re interested in those instead. Now with this jack, because they can be a
little bit dangerous to use, you do wanna be very careful. I would definitely recommend doing some research
before you actually install this on your jeep. Have it with you off-road so when you do use
it, you know how to use it safely and you know how to use it properly. There really isn’t an installation for this
jack. You do wanna be able to store it somewhere
in your vehicle that it is very well held down. There are some interior mounts, some exterior
mounts. You can put this in a lot of different locations. If you are gonna put it outside, make sure
you grease up the mechanism very, very well. It will pay dividends in the end. The weather can really beat on these. And when you do go to use, you want to make
sure everything moves nice and freely. If you are going to install it on the inside
of the jeep, again, make sure this thing is strapped down and doesn’t move. These are very heavy and if you get into an
accident or a roll over, a flop situation off-road, you don’t want this thing moving
around and flying around on the interior of your jeep. It can definitely do some damage or cause
some injury. This recovery jack is going to run you $80
which is right around the same price as a lot of the other ones on the market. I do think this one’s pretty well-built. I think you are getting a good bit of value
at that $80 price point. Like with any other tool, if you take care
of it, it will take care of you. So if you’re looking for a farm-style recovery
jack for your Wrangler, I definitely recommend taking a look at this one from RedRock 4×4
that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.
