Bushranger X-Jack
Exhaust Gas Vehicle Jack


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.

When in sand, snow or mud an ARB X-Jack is the fastest way to get your vehicle lifted.

Complete kit comes with inflatable jack with heavy duty storage bag, puncture repair kit, ground mat, exhaust connection kit and pair of gloves.

Bushranger is a division of Kingsley Enterprises a leading Australian manufacturer of automotive and four wheel drive accessories for more than a quarter century.


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 fuss warranty.

Bushranger is a division of Kingsley Enterprises a leading Australian manufacturer of automotive and four wheel drive accessories for more than a quarter century.

“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.

Seattle, WA – ARB 4x4 Accessories, Australian based four wheel parts manufacturer was honored with the Best New Exterior Accessory Product award for ARB Bushranger X-Jack at the 2005 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
