Crawling around under your vehicle to safely position
your conventional jack can now be a thing of the past. With an ARB X-Jack,
simply place the unit on the ground beneath the side of the vehicle to be
raised and connect the hose to your tailpipe. When the engine is started,
the jack inflates. With a lifting capacity of 8800 pounds, an exhaust jack
is the fastest way to lift your vehicle up to 30 inches.
Bushranger product engineers recognized that conventional jacks were not
suitable to all types of terrain. In unstable areas of mud, sand and snow,
the exhaust jack offers a wider footprint to avoid sinking and uses
specially designed, triangular shaped feet to keep the unit firmly
grounded. For ease and greater stability, this unit is designed to be
safely placed under the side of the body rather than positioned under an
axle like a traditional jack.
A solid hard plate integrated in to the top of the X-Jack along with
additional side curtains offer maximum protection against punctures. The
X-Jack also offers a secondary inflation point for a 12 volt compressor
and for maximum speed, the compressor and the exhaust hose can be
connected at the same time!
Sold complete in a heavy duty storage bag with a puncture repair kit, a
ground mat, the exhaust connection kit and a pair of gloves, the ARB
X-jack kit is small enough to be easily stowed in your vehicle.

BETTER AND SAFER EXHAUST JACK
February 28 2005
Innovative Australian off road accessory company Bushranger
has designed and launched a new generation of exhaust jacks making one of
the most practical and useful off road tools even better.
Bushranger’s new X Jack features a triple layer lifting surface and a hard
core insert to ensure better durability and greater stability for raising
vehicles on unstable surfaces such as sand, mud and loose gravel.
The new X-Jack is a 21st century take on a concept pioneered in Australia
in the 1970s but using the latest materials and technology.
Additional safety features include an easy to use inflation and deflation
system that allows the user to remain at a safe distance while the vehicle
is being raised or lowered.
X-Jack is the first air jack to feature two way inflation utilizing either
the vehicle’s exhaust or a portable 12 Volt compressor such as
Bushranger’s Max Air or ProAir.
According to Bushranger national sales manager Evan Black the company
analyzed every aspect of previous units and set about designing and
developing a safer, more durable and easier to use exhaust jack.
“Off roaders, farmers and bushies have to use exhaust jacks to help lift
vehicles in bogs, sand or mud often at the least convenient times when
safety and stability are vital,” said Mr Black.
“Our engineers have incorporated design features such as additional side
curtains to assist in puncture prevention, a triple layer reinforced top
for more stable lifting and unique triangular feet on the bottom for
better grip,” he added.
“We also realized that sometimes it is not possible to inflate the jack
using the vehicle exhaust as it is not always convenient or safe, so the
X-Jack was also designed to be used with a 12 volt compressor.
“This innovation has taken the evolution of air jacks to a new level and
it is an example of why Bushranger has maintained its status as an
industry leader for so long,” he said.
X-Jack features a 750mm lift and is rated at four tonnes GVM.
The new X-Jack comes in a heavy duty storage bag and includes a protective
mat, a puncture repair kit, two filler tubes, a pair of leather gloves and
laminated operating instructions.
Available through all leading automotive accessory and four wheel drive
equipment shops the Bushranger X-Jack is covered by a full one year no

“We applied some logic and lateral thinking to a great idea and came up
with an even better one that will make it easier for people to lift
vehicles when they need,” said Mr Black.
