New Guy, Old Jeep

Hi folks,

I am new to this forum... and new to Jeeps.

Well... in the past, I've had a Cherokee and a couple Grand Cherokees, and also a Wagonner Limited. But I never really considered those real Jeeps. So I've always really wanted a Wrangler, and finally got one. Hooray! It is a 1997 Wrangler SE.

I can't wait to hit the road.

Where is the jack?

I can't for the life of me find the factory jack in my '97 Wrangler. I've looked everywhere. Can anyone help me find it?
