Model #MTXJB

Shopper Award

The MAXTRAX JaxBase is a multi-use recovery tool that is a fully-fledged recovery board ontop, with an extreme-duty jack base on the reverse.

The reinforced back of the MAXTRAX JaxBase has a large indented area in which to place the baseplate of your jack to ensure that it cannot slide or move under load. This indented space accomadates Hi-Lift® style and other off-road jacks, along with many factory bottle of scissor jacks. To ensure durability, we've tested the JaxBase with everything from our legendary (and incredibly heavy) 6X6 Land Cruiser, to advanced armored military vehicles weighing in excess of 15,000 lbs over the course of several years.

The safety of the JaxBase as a platform for your off-road jack comes from the 44 teeth which are submerged into the ground after weight is put on them, creating an incredibly stable platform on which you can lift your vehicle in the worst conditions. In the same way that MAXTRAX grip your tires to lift you UP and OUT in a recovery scenario, these very same teeth are keeping your jack safe and planted.

We've designed the MAXTRAX JaxBase to nest within all other MAXTRAX recovery boards (Mini, MKII, and Extreme), always lining up with the center handle to make it easy to carry in a high-stress situation.

Also available as a combo, sold in a pair with a MAXTRAX Mini recovery board.
