I meant how/where do you lift from? You can't attach to axle.

I've used mine numerous times but never to change a tire.

It helps to have good rocker guards. I've lifted it from there but as stated be careful, a hi lift can hurt you quick

Based on model of jeep and type of bumpers... you cant lift from the edges of a jk on the bumper. You look underneath and you have to lift from the metal framing of the bumper. After the first time just testing It... you have a groove from the teath to help the next time. DONT FORGET to block the front or rear tires.... opposite end of flat repair. And the off road foot brace is a great addition

Carry a heavy duty m/c tie down strap and hook it to the frame and axle before you Jack it up and it will lift the axle when you Jack it up.

Always bring a compass, it is awkward to have to eat your friends.

Bottle Jack with wooden base > hi-lift

Weld socket to Jack, Use impact to raise vehicle.

I bought a mount off of Ebay a while back that mounted on my bumper. Very secure and has been holding up well.

Mounted to my JCR bumper/tire carrier. Very secure and I just repainted the jack to be a little more weather worthy. Just remember if you keep it outside you are going to have rust.
