Where am I supposed to jack from? My bumper?

A proper bumper will suffice for jacking position. Rock rails can also make for a good point to jack from. Plastic is not a good spot.

That is the first version of the Mopar front bumper. They didnít include fog light cutouts at that time nor would it accept the PowerPlant so I modified it somewhat. Hereís a link to that thread if interested.

Pinch seam is weak. It cut like butter when I trimmed them before installing 35s.

Installed my AEV 2.5" DualSport lift with the geometry brackets and and bilstein steering stabilizer. Couldn't be happier. Install was pretty easy. Was able to use a lift and it took me about 4.5 hours with air tools.

I found that out the hard way. Anyone know a way to hi lift a tube bumper without the lift sliding sideways or killing the finish

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40

I agree with you. After 3 Jeeps I have never used my hi-lift jack. I have seen others on the trails use sissor jacks under the axle to change a tire and they worked great. Not going to mount one on my 2014.

New:
2014 JKU Rubicon, Copperhead Pearl, 3" TerraFlex lift, Toyo MT 35x12.5x18 tires, Warn Powerplant,

Old:
2010 JK Rubicon, 2 dr., 3" Terraflex lift and adjustable rear track bar, Toyo 35x12.5 tires, custom bumpers, Warn Powerplant, KC lights, B&M trans cooler, etc.

Have the same lift, love it as well! over 20k miles later and its still clunk and squeek free! Never had to re-torque anything either. I love the geo brackets too, made a huge difference.
