i remember a jacknife that was like a semi.  it had a cab and trailer anyway.  but ive never seen one like the one linked.  thought someone might like to put it in their highjacker lineup.

I know this is old, but it might help someone.  The Jacknife (there is one K in the name) I don't know much about, just seen em on ebay, it's the 6v car with the "transforming wing" or whatever.  Like you guys said, probably a lot like the Hi-Jacker.  The Jackknife (there are 2 Ks in the name) was a semi truck with a detachable trailer that was powered by the TMH battery.

Awesome I didn't know these were rare. I just fixed up my little brother's Jacknife the other day, the pressed-on fast gear spun off the axle and it was put out of commission until now; all the teeth were there so I gorilla glued it back on.

My brother said we played chicken against my Hi-Jacker and I tore the front bumper and the body mounts off the Jacknife. I forgot about that LOL. We took it back and got the one that's here today. It had a lot of "wow" factor when you transformed it in front of someone.
