you could also get some rock sliders and use them as a jack point.

You would need some really stout rock sliders to support the weight of the truck, especially with the distance between the frame and the rockers.

Wade, have you ever used a Hi-Lift to winch with? It sucks! I mean it works, but it is awful painstaking work to move 2-3 feet at a time, then re-secure the vehicle to start all over. I have done it twice, and hope I never have to again. Much easier to just make sure you have a buddy with you to pull you out.

I think my slider steps should be strong enough, I will definitely be doing some tests with the high-lift... when I finally finish them
I have used my high-lift more times for other fab work than actual lifting. You can use it as a big clamp/vise or to separate / pry things apart

I wondered if you gave up on those since I hadn't seen any updates.

As you can see the truck moves very very little and you will need something to keep what little progress you have made. I have used many types of recovery systems and wildcat is dead on. Another truck of equal size is always the best.

As a Jack the Hi-Lift is great.
