Hi-Lift

So I was messing around with my factory jack today to make sure I knew how to change a tire... and I quickly realized I can't get the Jeep off the ground now, and I'm about to add even more lift... How do you guys recommend I get it up to change a tire or something? should I just be jacking from a different spot or is a Hi-lift the best way to go? And what size hi-lift will I be needing along with any useful accessories for the trail? And finally, how should I go about mounting this to the Jeep? Thanks for any help, I'm clueless...

Believe the manual says to put it under the axle, on the side your lifting.

Lifting under the axle will do it with stock jack
Unless you have steel bumpers or aftermarket rock rails a Hi-Lift will not do you much good since there would be no where to use it.
Some do use it in the hitch but to change a ire it wouldn't work too well. They do make a kit that you lift the wheel up, but kind of blundersome if again just changing a tire

Would the spot in the manual for changing a front tire still work? And rock rails are on the to do list... But not quite my next project
