Question Hi-Lift Jack size

First, it appears that the RRO sliders cover the jacking location on the Cherokee. If I'm wrong, please let me know!

Anyway, considering using the sliders with a Hi-Lift Jack, but not sure what size would be the best to get. There's 36", 42", 48", and 60". Which would be size appropriate for the Cherokee? Would think the 60" would be a bit much, but the others...?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

42" would work. I used the 60 on my JK with 35's. When raising my TH with a floor jack, I was suprised on how much travel there was before the front tire lifted from the ground.

Reviving an old thread. What size of Hi Lift have people purchased? I was considering a 36" to keep it compact but will probably just go with the 48" for it to be more versatile and better to use in an emergency as a winch if I am stuck by myself. Thoughts?

Decided on a 48" X-Treme. For now I will just put it inside. I am still deciding on a plan for a rack for fuel tanks on the back mounted off of the hitch or I might go with a basket. I might put some form of a bumper on the front so i might be able to mount it there. So many choices Any suggestions?

I went with the 42" and will be mounting on my roof rack. Good news for the size I got is it does fit behind the rear seats when moved forward. The 48" might be too long.

You have seen the tiregate.com stuff, yes?

Thanks for the tip @DZOnline I thought the 42" would be too tall also so I figured if I couldn't fit it behind the seat I might as well go with the 48". Now you have me thinking again. I have looked at little at tiregate.com, nice stuff but pricey.

I will be mounting my hi-lift & full size shovel on the roof rack/basket, if I ever get one.... I've needed both since I embarked on my TH journey.

@DZOnline how much did you pay for it? Is it an actual Hi Lift or a different brand? Full cast iron?

Yes, it's the actual Hi-Lift, red with black handle. Bought on Amazon for $75 a while back.
