Anyone have a recommendation on a good frame jack. Getting ready to do some mods and with the Tremor frame being so high my older jacks aren't up to the task without stacking a punch of cinder blocks etc

Appreciate the help.

Search USA jack. They have a lot of options. Capacities up to 20 tons. Also have have long stroke models. Jacks are all made in the USA.

I second Safe Jack, I have the 12 ton Recovery Kit that I use Offroad. It’s far superior to my 3.5 ton Pro Lift Shop Jack.

Anyone packing a hi-lift jack in their bed? Curious on what you use for a jack point. Was easy on the wrangler with Steel rock sliders everywhere... not so much on the Tremor

I wouldn't recommend a Hi-lift. I don't believe the weight capacity is sufficient. They list the xtreme version as having a 5k pound capacity but I've seen them bow under load at that weight. I tried using one with my old 05 super duty. I used the tow hooks to lift from (also not recommended but it was an emergency) and the hi lift had a definite bow in it that freaked me out. I got rid of it after that.

I wouldn't rely on a stock jack of any vehicle
I don't understand, are Ford SuperDuty jacks unreliable? Or is it that you mean in an unpredictable situation on a trail it wouldn't be useful?

Standard jack isn't remarkable. It's satisfactory of use on flat level ground for a quick tire change but that's about it. Then again, that's what it's designed for. I wouldn't rely on it for use off the pavement. Go with a longer throw jack with a larger base or an off road specific floor jack. I don't recommend hi-lift jacks especially if you have a diesel
