hi-jack lift points ?

So I have no way to jack up the rear of the truck. The front i put the highlift on the tow hooks to change a tire...

I'm looking for the cheapest and easiest way to have a lift point for the rear so i can change a tire on the trail.

I have no hitch outback and i'm not getting one ... would love a tubular bumper but can't afford it for a long long time.

by the way i have a 36 inch hi-jack and it barely worked out on the front tow hooks ..... the back might not work i'm not sure . this is when i was totaly stock too. Its like 3 inches higher now with tires etc . I'm going to have to step up one or two sizes eventualy. if your getting a hi lift go for a bigger one . I got that size cuz it fit horizontal in the bed but now i have a new spot to put a bigger one. you can always pile up some dirt or something to raise the jack.

taller highlift all around. and a rear hitch out back. i know you said no hitch but that will be your best option for a lift point. or custom fab rock sliders.

i have a 60" all cast high lift and it will lift for most of all my needs

a 36"?
ive only seen 48 and 60..


anyways. on the front of my truck its only like 2 notches from the top when a tire leaves the ground. in the rear with the stock bumper and only a body lift i wrapped a chain around the leaf spring and frame to keep the suspension from drooping.. i haven't tried that yet with this setup(bumper/BL/RCD/35s)...

i know thats not the best method but it keeps it quite a bit lower.. im going to buy a bottle jack or just make some sliders and use them as a jack point..
