The bottle jack axle cradle is designed to be welded directly to the top of any bottle jack that meets your particular need or application. Constructed out of 5/16" steel so it will hold up to any abuse you throw at it. There are two different diameter cut outs in this bracket. The large cut out at 3.50" in diameter is large enough to fit late model trucks with one ton axles, yet will work for smaller axles commonly found on lighter vehicles. The smaller 1.25" diameter cut is designed to work with steering linkages or suspension links and or can be enlarged up to 2.50" in diameter by the end user to fit your particular need.
The bottle jack axle cradle is shipped unpainted and un-welded. The bottle jack axle cradle can be used with any bottle jack 2 tons up to 20 tons. The only limiting factor is the bottle jack you are using needs to be able to extend far enough to reach the axle you are intending to use this product with.
NOTE: Bottle Jack NOT included. This listing is for the axle cradle only. The cradle MUST be welded to the bottle jack by the end user.
Please note that the Youtube video posted above is out dated and does not accurately reflect the latest version of this product as shown in the pictures. The cutouts in the current design are now 3.5" Diameter and 1.25" Diameter.
Makes for stable lifting platform when using bottle jack, bought two
Read carefully. Does not include jack that is in photos. Other than that, it does very well.
This cradle is STOUT! Took me a few minutes to weld on the bottle jack. Put to use 2 days later as I was headed to Moab with my Jeep on a trailer and blew a trailer tire. Threw the jack with the cradle under the trailer and a few minutes later was back on the road. 10 miles later got to do it all over again. Paid for itself through making it easy to change the tires! Going to get another one to keep in my truck.
My Chevy Colorado doesn't have a good jack point on the rear diff, so I bought two of these and had them welded to small framed boxes that slide over the pads on an American Forge & Foundry Crossbeam Adapter. This lets me lift the entire rear end of the truck from the axle with my jack.
I just welded up my bottle jack axle cradle last night. it is obvious that this is a very high quality and robust piece. As with everything I buy from swag, I am never disappointed. Everything that I bought from swag has been excellent . And I have purchased a lot of Swag's products. And considering the cost, Swag products are a no-brainer.
