There's one tool that anyone who has ever worked on a truck has likely used at some point and that's the humble floor jack. Simple in nature, this necessary tool often leads to some of the most frustrating moments in the garage. Jacks can be heavy, they often become stuck on the smallest debris, some lack the lifting power for large (or even small) trucks, and they sometimes come up too short to even get the tires off the ground. This can be maddening.
Fortunately, the folks at Pro Eagle shared the frustrations of many and set out to build a jack that not only overcame these challenges but also excelled in an area most floor jacks don't: off-road. These jacks are constructed of aluminum to keep overall weight down and feature smart additions such as a full-length skidplate that helps provide flotation in dirt and mud along with keeping grime out of the functional bits. They come in three flavors, which include the standard 2-ton, a big-wheel 2-ton called "The Beast," and big-wheeled 3-ton named "Kratos." Weights range from 46 to 60 pounds and all three come with an 8-inch adjustable extension.
Remember we said everything needed was included in the box? Even the circlip tool needed to install the wheels is provided.
The big-wheel jacks are specially designed, and the wheels aren't just an add-on afterthought. Solid steel axles are used to ensure they hold up under pressure.
