How would you use a Hi-Lift with wheel adapter to change a tire?

Get some sliders and a tube adapter for your Hi-Lift so you can lift from the sides independent of the wheels. You need the sliders anyway.

You can use a shackle in one of the recovery tabs on you RockyMtnX front winch mount to lift from the front. Same for the rear if you have a receiver hitch and receiver shackle bracket.

I plan to get sliders, probably this year sometime. As I said, I'm just getting things going with this setup. I also need to actually get some shackles etc since I finally got the bumper installed.

Hi-lift jacks are a very valuable tool. There's a reason the majority of actual off road vehicles have them. You can jack with it, winch with it, use it to open a door, use as a mechanical spreader to get someone out of a vehicle in the event of a roll over. It's a good investment.

You can also break your teeth with it, not have the correct equipment to winch with it so you get your buddy to pull you out, you can use a bottle jack to lift any vehicle in a safe manner without stretching out the suspension...

Seriously, show me someone who has the correct chains to 'winch' with a high lift on the trail. The only time I ever used mine in my years of wheeling was to put a buddies coil back in, and guess what, it didn't work right and we had to piss around with it..

Seriously I would much rather have a good bottlejack and a chainsaw.
