Jack size ????

I have a 88, 2500 that is having a 6 inch lift and 35 or 36s installed in the next 30 days or so. I need to pull some fence posts so I getting a jack now. What size Hi-Lift do I need? Do the Northern Tools or Harbor Friegt brands hold their own?

Man, for the price difference, just go to Gebo's or Tractor Supply... Farmers don't buy their hi-lifts outta 4wparts catalogs...

plus, you can get all the accessories cheaper I've found there, including rebuild kits... my hi-lift was made in the early 60's and I pulled it outta a barn behind grandad's house... took the thing and sandblasted it, installed a new kit and a custom length handle and repainted the whole deal to match my truck.. it's awesome and cost me $15 in new parts...

Anybody have any Idea where to find a 60 inch that is a "deal". 4 Wheel Parts looks like the best deal I can find. I hit every farm and ranch supply from San Antonio up 281 to Blanco over to Fredricksburg then back down 87 to 10. I found some good prices on 48 inch Hi-Lifts but 60 inch are special order everywhere except 4 wheel parts. I thought about beating a few pawn shops but I always end up finding a "deal" on crap I never use and don't find what Im looking for.

That sucks... I bought a t-post puller for mine yesterday for $5 off the clearance rack. Looked while I was there, and they didn't have the 60" one in stock either...

Check the garage sales in your area too... somebody might have one... flea markets?

NT does have it in stock for $64.95. I just picked up a 60in full cast for $64.95 at 4WP. They gave me their Internet price in house with no shipping. I was looking for a better deal or even used. Still the price drop is way below MSRP. I really work pretty hard to find the "deal". My backpacking, Mountain biking buddy refers to me as the gear wizard. He says that now one can find deals without being magic. This purchase just didn't leave that special warm fuzzy I look forward to when I get on the hunt. Thanks for the replies.
