    I have nothing in the works right now except to figure out a good lightweight jack to carry on my RZR. I'm using a scissor jack right now but it's really unstable when extended. I need something about 4" tall with a reach of 10". The scissor jack fits the bill not my first choice if I can find something better!

      I'd probably just add a jack stand to my load to help stabilize the RZR after you get it up. Not exactly my area of expertise. The last things I jacked up beside my own pick up truck were large platform lifts to swap out the tires for foam filled. We kept those serviced and used them on fire sprinkler jobs and used four of the 15 ton railroad jacks we bought from the same rental company we bought the lifts thru.

        I'm still working on an AR 15 Marauder pistol. With a little effort, I will have it on the range this week. I've tested the subcomponents with my other platforms, but this will the first time with a full assembly solo run.
        Give a man a match, & he'll be warm for 20 seconds. But toss that man a white phosphorus grenade and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

          I have a floor jack and stands for home. I need something for trail use. Sunday a bud had a flat and the scissor jack worked but not the most ideal thing.

            They're pricey, but I would go with one of the aluminum floor jacks. They're only rated to two tons, but for you thats not an issue.

            Or just go with a bumper jack from a mid 70s plymouth.

              I don't have the space to carry something that size. Brother, I'm already carrying enough to damn near rebuild the RZR along with my BOB

                        I'm sure they aren't giving them away. $$$

                            Can't you just pick it up and set it on a rock or something? It doesn't look very heavy.
                            I don't know.

                              You can weld, just go to the junk yard and grab one of these...


                              ...and modify it as needed.
