    A good 8" of travel before wheel comes off the ground. Like I saide previously I use a 48" HiLift. Next size bigger would be better in some circumstances. Do NOT get any smaller than 48" Jack

    Eddie has a video from 2 years ago, Harris was working on his JL using the stock jack in the parking lot of a hotel and the jack broke.

    HiLift jacks have a place, but they are damn dangerous if you're not careful. I grew up with those old piece of shit bumper jacks that came on the cars and they could do the same thing. A good bottle jack from Harbor Freight will be much safer. I had a spring perch mount welded on mine so it cradles the axle tube and won't slip off.

    This shows how dangerous these can be. Getting clobbered in the head by the handle would be serious pain. Concussion likely.



    Bottle Jack. Can't beat this for $40

    This is what I use and it fits perfectly in the rear storage. Also, I take a foot long 4x4 and 2x4. IMG_9238.JPGIMG_9239.JPG
