hi lift jacking pts

go on flame me for being a dangerous newb but my j10 came with a "bumper" jack, the bumpers has slots for it to fit into and the whole body was strong enough to jack directly from even the wheel wells not so the jk, where do you guys jack from, i'll start:

wheel thingy
rock rails

anyone use d rings?
will the curved bumper accessory work on a stock bumper (hi lift site says it works on plastic bumpers

dang vendors who don't answer phones, yea you hi lift....

I jack mine on the rock rails and even did it once on my d-rings on my front bumper.

On a stock JK the only real place to jack using a hi-lift would be the rock rails, provided your Jeep even came with them. You would wind up mangling the stock plastic front and rear bumpers if you tried jacking from them. I'm not sure about that 'curved bumper' accessory though, sorry.

Definitely one of the drawbacks about all the plastic on the JK's.

The stock JK has two HiLift spots on the front-stock- bumper and two on the rear stock bumper

The stock "Rock Rails" are too close to the body for HiLift use

After mkt bumpers and "Sliders" are the best bet

The stock jack should be placed under lower control arm brackets for individual tire use, or lower shock mount !!

jimbo I see bolt holes(?) on the metal box bar under the rear and thought about that, can you be more specific about he stock pts front and rear. Obviously near the fame on front but I don't see it. thanks also for the info on the scissor jack I thought the top looked worng for direct placement on the axle as it lacks a cradle! Guess I should read my manual.

That's the first I've heard about those. When I had my stock bumpers I didn't even bother trying to use the HiLift on them, primarily because they looked too flimsy to jack from without damaging and also most people on the forums didn't recommend it.

A good idea is to always carry a short (6/8" piece of old scrap (??) 4x4 wood to use as a spacer on the bumpers, from the jack to where the frame ends at the bumper or just to put on top the stock jack, to help eliminate slipping

The lower control arm (LCA)brackets and the lower shock mounting brackets are strong enough for single point use, you never want to put a jack-DIRECTLY-on either axle tube, they are pretty strong, but you never know !!

If you have stock rock rails, then the sissor jack will work on either end-using the 4x4 piece as a spacer--as long as your JK isn't lifted, but still better under the LCA !!


Good luck

JIMBO
