    Jacking with ARB Jack

    I have recently ordered the new ARB Jack which is a hydraulic jack. Where can I affix this to a Disco 4? Can it be used in both off road and normal suspension setting? I assume those with the Farmers Jack would have the answer as I cannot find this anywhere

    Maybe should have researched it first but unless you have a front and rear bar or decent side steps/rock sliders there is no where suitable to lift from.
    You could get the wheel adapter but that's pretty useless if you need to change that wheel.

    If you have a bull bar you could jack from a point on there, but otherwise no, these type of jacks not really suitable for D4 side lifting unless, as said, you have rock sliders you can pick up from.

    Looks like they are designed to work with ARB bullbars as there is a slot for jack. Not sure how it would attach to an OL bar. Try APT for the rocksliders.

    I would never lift my D4 on the side sliders…

    Too easy for the jack / vehicle to move and the doors to be damaged.

    These jacks are nice pieces of kit, total WOFTAM on a D3/4/RRS.

    Correct height, multi stage Bottle jack for the win every time on these vehicles.
    Cheers

    I have the bottle jack and the ARB Jack would be for quick lifting and where it may be difficult to place the bottle jack under the vehicle

    Not really suitable for this and without a steel rear bar you will only be able to jack the front, also ARB bars don't come with the slot any more at least not for D3/4 - my bar certainly doesn't have it.

    Will not work - take it back and get something suitable for lifting your vehicle.

    A farmer mate of mine is on at least this 2nd maybe 3rd.

    Used regularly @ max. lifting capacity…..

    Ive been meaning to grab an old one to see how rebuildable they are.
