Huge Jeep mystery

I just bought a 2004 Jeep TJ and have a question that is driving me crazy!!! There are two bars, maybe 24" long, in a bag velcroed on the passenger side floor against the door.

What the hell are these things for?????

They are for your floor jack that is bolted under the passenger seat.

I was wondering this same thing for a while till I opened them up and saw the instructions. All you do is put them together and they make an extension handle for the bottle jack.

If you were afraid to open that little bag and look inside, don't even think about opening the hood. There's a whole bunch of complicated crap hidden under it.

Of course I opened it up. How the hell else would I know there were two bars.

No instructions in the bag.

Ever try to use the jack without those? It sucks! I used just the tire iron the other day.
