What is the function of this product?
An air bag jack can be the perfect tool for recovering a four wheel drive vehicle stuck in deep sand or other areas where conventional jacks may sink. In the instance that the vehicle is stuck up to the chassis rails, a thin area can be dud out just below the rails to allow for the deflated air bag jack to slip underneath. The Design and included parts of the air bag jack then allow for it to be connected to the exhaust of the vehicle to inflate the jack. Once raised, the area underneath the vehicles wheels can then be filled in or have tracks placed below to provide extra grip, making for a painless recovery. It should be noted however that an air bag jack is designed specifically for recovery purposes and should not be used for changing vehicle tires.
