48" or 60" Hi lift jack?

I have just mounted a Hi lift holder onto my spare wheel and was wondering what size jack I should buy.
I plan on getting a 4" lift and running some 35x12.5x16 tyres. Would a 48" jack be enough or should I go for the 60"?

48" fits better with no under/overhang.
60" sits just below rear bar or above roof rack...

If you only care for look go with the 48".
If you care for a proper tool go for the 60"...

And here's a picture for a good idea to lock it up...

Neither unless you have high lift jacking points or planning to buy the straps which allow you to lift via the wheels.
Good point, I have the straps for the wheels. Works good.
