If your car ever gets stuck in mud, sand or snow, make sure that you have this handy contraption in the trunk – X-jack by Bushranger. This jack will get you out in no time. The secret of this reinforced air bag lies in a wider footprint to avoid sinking, as well as in specially designed triangular grip feet that keep the jack well grounded. X-jack is an exhaust operated device which has a lifting capacity of incredible 8.800 lb (or 4.000 kg).
The jack can lift a vehicle up to 31 inches (75 cm), and it weighs only 19.3 pounds. It has a dual inflation system. Apart from the exhaust, you can inflate the jack with the help of an air compressor too. X-jack is sold with a 15′ long exhaust hose, laminated instructions, a protective anti-puncture mat, a pair of leather gloves, a puncture repair kit, two filler tubes, and a cordura heavy duty storage bag. It deflates flat for easy storage, and it works only with round exhaust pipes, it is not made for tapered or square exhausts.
X-jack is designed to be placed under the side of the chassis rather than an axle like your every-day version of a car jack. Once you see for yourself just how efficient it is, it will become a staple in your car.
