Found a diagram that has the little set screws you have in your jack clamp rings.

Congratulations, you have a set of ShurLift Hydraulic Jacks.


Is that a good thing?

Just means that once something internal goes and they start having trouble holding pressure, you'll have to replace the jack vs being able to rebuild it is all.

P.S. On the Hijackers the part welded to the center section is the end ya bolt to your camper .

I also center drilled mine and added an additional bolt hole on the side that bolts to the camper


I did the same (added another hole). I had a jack slide off my blocking and sink into the dirt when it was sitting in a field and it bent up the jack bracket pretty good. It scared the heck out of me, but I was able to use my truck jack and some wood to support the tub of the camper until I could get the jacks back on the blocking.

The problem is that there is little strength in the side plate after the weld. That's a whole lot of weight sitting on a 1/4" think 2" wide piece of steel. I added holes in line with the welds and added two more bolts to attach it to the camper's brackets.

I must say after mounting them I'd doubtful it's enough to clear the duals???

But I'll soon see, the plan is to take the truck to a Hot Rod diesel shop & have them go over the rig & then bring it home & & mount the camper & register it in my name.
with the camper on it to remove the weight fees.

One of them was not building pressure the other day!
But strangely the next day seemed ok?

But I'm sure that means its going bad!

Any ideas on price?


Not necessarily, it may just mean ya had air trapped in there. I'd sometimes have to pump mine for a bit, then burp them, then pump again to get rid of an air bubble plug periodically before lifting her up from her underbelly perch could begin.

Depends on yer truck, older campers are a little narrower than the newer ones, so I ended up adding a couple pieces of plate steel to mine to give the camper a little wider stance, giving me 1.5" on each side of clearance for loading.

It is one of the check valves leaking from a flake of dirt in the seat.

Open the valve up and pump the handles briskly a few times and that will usually clear it.
