Its hard to say, it could be completely fine and up to the job, but I suppose the only time you'll find out it's not ok and up to the job you could be in a dangerous position etc... You could maybe research it more and see if any ones left reviews on it somewhere like other 4x4 sites etc.

Out of interest, Where about's can you jack a L200 up using one of these high lift jacks without damaging the body? (Sorry if this is a silly question, still new to offroad)

Usually you'll need some sort of rockslider etc sometimes guys get them with hi-lift jack points made into them.

i would use the winch tray on the front and the tow bar on the back of the truck. just i need a new jack the one that i have with the truck will not lift the wheels off the floor now with the lift kit the only way i get round it at the moment is to use a lump of log under the bottle jack

I've owned and used the original Jackal and found it good as long as you have a stable jack point on the truck.
But the cost of the jackal is double the price of this one and I would be wary with this.
The jackal has great back up with spares and repair service, sorry for negative reply but that's my take on this jack.

Jacking points on a L200 is a problem unlike a Land rover as extension arm that attaches to the jackal fit into tubes on front and rear chassis sections and as been said rock sliders can have built in lift points.
Great care must be taken using these jacks if poor truck attachment points for jack is not available .I've had the brown trousers moment !!!

Hi there, if you haven't already done so, it is a good idea to 'you tube' it............there will be all sorts of advice and how to's on there for you to look at and really will make up your mind......I personally went for the high lift extreme, yes it is more expensive, but after doing hours of checking reviews etc I thought it was the best one for my needs....good luck and enjoy....

I also brought the hi lift adaptor to fit on my sealy hi lift jack it is a solid metal tube that fits over the jack and can be inserted into the cassis or the built in points on the winch bumper

Do you know what, I've had 285/75/16's on mine for about 2 years now and have never had to use the jack in that time. I never thought to check if it would still reach the chassis!! Does it seriously not reach?

Better go and chuck a block of wood or something behind the rear seat with all the other crap! (well I'll do it when i'm back home next)

What he said!

These can be dangerous bits if kit to use and cheap ones are prone to failure and could easily result in serious injury, I have a genuine hi-lift and I wouldn't use anything other than premium quality jacks like Jackall or hi-lift

Now that my truck is lifted even my 3T trolley jack has a hard time getting the wheels off the ground. I was looking at Hi Lifts but would be getting sliders with suitable points and maybe the wheel strap for actually lifting the thing!

The "lift mate" wheel adapter is a good piece of kit for off road recovery, not much cop though for a puncture, tubbing a tow bar, or a winch tray / bumper is defo the safest method.
