I wonder if they'll need to change them for the LCV then?

Lambert, I wouldn't be surprised if you use high-lifts quite a bit on the farm. As I'm sure you're aware they can be dangerous things (not always that stable).
Sliders are built for sliding and would not be best suited to a jacking point. If you add bracketry you reduce the sliding ability. I've got Jimnybits sliders and I happily shove a high lift trolley under the mounting plates but that's on a level floor in near perfect conditions. Food for thought anyway, Chris.

Not without good cause do I call my high lift the "finger trapping harbinger of death". They demand the highest level of caution. But that said they're invaluable when nothing else will work. Looking at the design I was thinking that it would be possible to weld a couple of short tubes either end of the perforated sheet part and use a land rover adapter. However it's slightly academic as they are currently out of stock.

When I had the SJ I used the mechanism from a VW "Monkey on a stick" jack and replaced the shaft with 2 pieces of tube that could screw together.

Worked well for the few times I needed it.

It's the only thing I kept when I left my Land Rover life behind me. I love and hate the Hi-lift Jack with a passion. It's too heavy, it's too dangerous, it's too expensive, it's too rattley , it's too rusty, it's got me out of some really sketchy bad situations off-road and on the land. It's been pounded, driven over, buried, used to extend a lever, man punished isn't the word.
And I thought how am I going to carry it on the Jimny , turns out Jimny doesnt need a Hilift Jack 90% of the time. The other 10% a small shovel or ratchet strap gets you home.
