I did toy with the idea of getting a hi lift but after hearing a few horror stories (usually down to operator error) I kept my 3.5 tonne bottle jack and a folding shovel it may take a little longer to dig out a hole big enough to fit the jack under the truck but I feel safer that way as I'm not in any hurry to cave the side of my head in.
Sorry to go off topic Tuggy but are you on another forum as "the king of the kitchen" ?
I would rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy
