    I used to scrounge every bumper jack I I could find to make load locks for dry vans. I may still have one will have to look.

    That plastic crate is a great way to show the jack in action.

    You can do a lot accessory-wise with this. Fence post puller comes to mind.

    Nice. Can also look up accessories for a commercial Hi-Lift jack for ideas.

    Bumper lift:


    Wheel lift:


    First responder kit.


    JackMate:


    Had to LOL at the bottle opener though. Not sure I could drink a beer with someone who opened it with his jack!

    Couldn't resist a patent search. 5 results for "bumper jack" and "bumper jacks":

    Double Fingered Bumper Jack Body



    Bumper Jack Worktable



    Tripod Bumper Jack



    Wheel Lifting Kit for Bumper Jacks



    Combined Bumper/Jack/Hoist


    Worktable seems a bit weird; I guess I think of bumper jacks as a less-safe solution for off-road repairs, and not something you would use inside your shop.
