Exhaust Jacks and Diesel GC

Hi Guys,

I'm looking at buying a exhaust jack and was wondering if anybody on the forum has had any experience with them and particularly if you have a diesel JGC.

I've got a MY14 JGC Diesel, but I've thought i had read somewhere that these jacks shouldn't be used as they create to much back pressure.....Can anybody enlighten me if there is any issues with using these?

Thanks

Could cause issues with the DPF sensors as they sense a pressure differential across the filter. Sensing a higher pressure on the downstream side might freak out the regen computer.

Re: Exhaust Jacks and Diesel GC

Thanks MBDiesel. I thought as much. I just had the exhaust filter 100% full fixed last week. What would be a good jack to lift car when on sand?
