Since I can't always operate a Hilift anymore, thanks Nanook, you just reminded me I must get one.

I remember seeing a bloke in a Hilux getting himself out of all manner of situations using a single air jack and nothing else, in record time!
They require no physical input to operate, are really cheap, light weight and take virtually no storage space. I do wonder why everyone's not packing them.

At the risk of hijacking this topic, is there a downside to the use of air jacks?
