Trestlejacks

Saw this and thought it was interesting. Probabaly not much of a 4x4 application, but thought I would toss it in the Campfire as many people like interesting ideas on this forum. What caught my eye is they seem to have no issues with large vehicles.

Works if you have 4wd or you need to lift the non-driven axle. Also, if it's that easy to raise the vehicle with this jack, is it just as easy to lower the vehicle off of this jack? I'm not sure that would be a good thing. At a minimum, using this jack further emphasizes that you need to chock the tires that remain on the ground so the vehicle cannot shift under any circumstances.

it will get very hard to lift a vehicle with a complete flat tire. The difference of high you have to lift it than is not easy with that sort of jack i think
