jack lug wrench extension rod location, and what the heck is this...

As indicated by all my posts here recently, I'm a brand new TJ owner (somewhat clueless too).

The factory jack and tools where just sitting in the back of my 01 TJ. I figured out where the jack and lug wrench go, although does the jack then tighten up on the lug wrench (like I have it) or against the metal frame? Yes things must be "just right" in my world!



Do I have the extension rods in the right place? There are 2 of them right?



And what the heck is this? *Another* lug wrench? It doesn't fit the wheel lugs, has some weird plastic mount, and I'm thinking it doesn't belong in this TJ. Thoughts? Only thing that intriges me is that it has "USA" on it too, just like the other (I think real) wrench.




The factory wrench has the slot in it for the jack rod extensions I assume.

Thanks as always for helping out the new blood!

Yeah, I'll be getting a floor jack soon, already have jack stands. Used to have one when I drove old VW beetles.

What about that other wrench? Factory or stow-away?

Yep, you have it all together. The other wrench is a extra. Do you have the special lug wrench key for security lugnuts? Do you have locking lugnuts (check your spare, too)?

Thank you for fixing my links. I've forgotten how to directly link images it seems!

But where do I store the extra wrench (if it's factory)? Or is a store bought extra? Obviously then I store it where I want.

No locking lug nuts anywhere.

No need for that second wrench. I keep one of these in the Jeep. Never know when you'll need to help someone else, or need extra torque.

I would say its a store bought extra. Put it in the garage with that other pile of stuff that you might use someday

I didn't have mine, either. Had to get the nuts off the hard way.
