Anyone Using an Exhaust Jack?

I was reading through Geofff’s thread on his big stuck south of Bay of L.A. a while back http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...uck-12190.html

and was wondering if an exhaust jack would have helped.
Is anyone using one of these? I’m wondering about the weight capacity and clearance needed to get the wheels up out of a mud or sand rut.

Good video comparing different Jack types in this Ausi video:

I do happen to have an exhaust jack! Although I feel the van would be too heavy I have kept it as a conversation piece. I pull it out and raise my Jeep to non believers!

I have been using an ARB X-Jack for over 10yrs.
It has lifted my high top Sportsmobile I used to have, my 70 Suburban and now my 2019 Transit poptop,
I do use my Extreme Outback compressor instead of exhaust to inflate it, much more control and I can watch what is happening.
Since it is only an inch or so thick I have been able to cram it in places when in sand, mud like the Baja story you mentioned.
I also like that I can drive off it if high centered.

How much lift does it give? You say it packs down to only about an inch or so thickness? What diameter? I could find a spot for that to live and feel good it was there when the ground gets soft...
