Temporary Jack help

Im planning on going mudding this weekend, and wont have my hi lift jack available to me. I still have the stock scissor jack that my wrangler came with, but i have a 2 inch lift and 35 inch tires. is there anything i could do for this weekend in case anything happens and i need to use it? should i bring some bricks to stack it on or is that not safe? what are my options?
thanks in advance for any answers

Not bricks...a mess of 2x4s or 2x6s about 8 or 10inches long.

and, you can also hook up your strap then pull it in a window or something. That way if you do get burried in there you won't have to go swimming to get your towline hooked up to the frame.

I would also recomend that if you have to change a tire that you pull it out of the mud first, then change it. hehe

And of course the best way to not get stuck is to not go... Nobody plans to get stuck..
