Jacking Point on front

Where is the best point to jack up the front of the jeep? The other day I used the point indicated by the arrow. It seemed to work just fine, but I'm worried that the axle tube isn't strong enough to support all that weight. Am I wrong about this?

Pretty much your only option on the Grand..
Unless you do what I did and buy Kevins Rock Sliderz..
Now I can jack anywhere on either side..


Owners manual says diff s are the only Jacking point..

Wouldn't the Jeep lean far to the left side if you jacked it up by the diff, since the diff is off center?

Well not necisarily (sp) the diff houseing but the axle housing
as you have indicated in your picture. Is what I meant..
Sorry for the miss understanding.. I am from the south and we
tend to generalize..

All soft drinks are Coke and all off road tires are Mudders
And the entire front or rear unit is the Diff..
You understand we are lazy down here..
LOL..
