Already reserved to collect mine tomorrow, doesn't matter if it gives up after a year of abuse for that price.
The forum i saw it posted on, someone said that they have the jack and its still going strong after a few years!.
My current jack is a 20+years old Halfords jobby that i acquired from my brother, thats had no maintenence and still keeps going, just creeps down if left up for a while. I've been looking about for a 2nd one as some jobs would be easier with 2 and ideally i'd get a 4x4 one but at that price i'm not passing it up.

Black Jimny's don't get stuck!

What you need now is a piece of 18mm ply a bit bigger than the jack to sit it on if you need to use it on grass or soft ground, screw / nail / nut and bolt a piece of wood to each end for safety so it dont roll off, they tend to creep as going up on the wheels.

i looked at these 'in store' ...

I wouldn't trust either the trolley jack or the axle stands for my Jimny - well not if I'm underneath it ...

Jalapeño, IISY?

check out this link, for a halfords jack

www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servl...-1_categoryId_165727

i have used one for over a year now and it's fantastic a little more than the b+q one, it also has the quick lift thing which means one pump and the weight is taken up on the jack

Hi. Picked up the Jack,etc today. As well as JimJim3 I have a Range Rover Classic converted into a pickup truck. It weighs 1.75 imperial tons with a big diesel engine up front. The jack lifted each front corner with no problems and was as stable as a trolley jack can be !
