    What Hi-Lift to get?

    I a sure many of you have this figured out already but being new to this what Hi-Lift is the best size to get?

    I have a Tahoe with a 4 inch lift and 34 wheels and I am trying to decide between a 48 or 60 inch lift. Where I am sure a 60 will do everything a 45 will do but if I never need it then a 48 inch will be easier to find a place for it to store and would be a little bit lighter to use..

    Any other jack suggestions and accessories will be helpful too. Thanks.

    I've been in places where there's a hole or dip that make it so a 48" would have never lifted the vehicle high enough. You can always cut a 60" down if you don't end up needing the extra length but you're not going to make a 48" longer for free.

    I agree, I think it comes down to longer is only a problem of where to store it, I was hoping to stash it under my rear seat I am not sure even 60 might still go under there. If not I will be building a swing out rear wheel rack and will put it on there with the spare tire.

    You can pull them apart and store the pieces separate.
    Some people are as useful as a football bat.

    Thanks the 48 inch will fit under the back seat with just the base sticking out and the 60 inch will fit there too but, it will stick out from under the seat on both sides.

    I can use it on the front or rear Fab four steel bumpers with no problem on my 2011 Tahoe or the wheels too.

    It's not the problem, it's the solution, that counts.

    I also have a 48" hi-lift. My truck has a 2-inch lift and I have no plan on adding more.

    One thing to do when needing to get your tire up off the ground with a hi lift, is to strap the suspension so it can't stretch out.

    Simple scissor or bottle jack takes up less space, and is often more useful and safer.

    Kinda need both, if your stuck in some mud,snow,sand, you often can't get a bottle jack under the axle.
