OEM bottle jack is fine. It is meant to jack up the axle tube, not from the frame rails. It extends... i dont know maybe 18 inches fully extended? Im not sure, but it gets plenty high, and ive heard of people using it with 35s.

Don't like the OEM. The one on the WJ is hard to use and I assume the XJ uses the same model. I hate the rotation mechanism and the binding you have to overcome... I could easily see it shaking free and falling over. In fact didn't that happen to someone on here recently? The only thing with a bottle jack is it doesn't cradle the axle tube. Hmmmm

OEM bottle jack on my xj is shaped like \__/ on top, so it cradles the axle a little bit. No problems here jacking it up. It will bind a little if you dont have the handle in straight enough.

Normal size, the liquor just goes in the heel about 3 oz. per shoe (just looked it up). Still a cool idea i think...
