  • where do I floor jack?

    Where should i put the floor jack to jack up the rig for tire rotations, etc?

    Situate the jack on your "pumpkins". That is, the center sections of your axles.

          If the diff (pumpkin) is not an option you can also jack under your control arm mounts.

                O yeah dont lift on both pumkins at the same time cause that might be bad! One side at a time is good

                Not a fun story to tell to the board that you rolled it while rotating your tires!

                  LOL Yea, just jack up the front then add your jackstands to both ends of the axle. Then do the same to the rear. Of course, this requires four jackstands.

                    Just get a running start on a little hill and high-center yourself to the point where all four tires are off the ground. Swap and then push yourself off......


                    I don't have four jackstands to do a tire rotation so what i do is jack up the front and stick two jackstands under the front axle. Next i go to the rear and jack it up by the pumpkin and i find two cinder blocks or wood to stick under each side of the rear axle for safety reasons and then swap.

                      That reminds me....


                      There are 2 PERFECT rocks in the Rock Garden at Wellsville that are under the water but will exactly lift all 4 tires off of the ground at the exact same moment. This requires several of your friends rocking your Jeep back and forth violently to get it back off of the rocks!
