Hi-lift jack points

Are there any jack points to use a hi-lift jack on a stock JK? Im talking off the lot stock, plastic bumpers, no rock rails or any sort of armor.

On a stock JK the only two places I can think of would be the Rubi rails, if equiped, and in the rear the recovery hook may be a usable point. I beleive it sticks out far enough past the plastic bumper.

Is it a hypothetical question? Why would you need a Hi-Lift for a stock Jeep? Just use the jack it came with.

Stock Jeeps can still get stuck. Hell, they can get suck easier than a modified Jeep, thus needing a jack for recovery

Right, it wasn’t clear what your intentions for a hi-lift were. For recovery you can use the tow hooks and the ratchet method, you don’t need to jack up the vehicle.

Get a good tree strap, 2 snatch straps/recovery chains. Attach one to tree and one to tow hook and fasten the hi-lift in between them and ratchet away.

Or get an Engo winch

For peeps who don't know, some info on how to use a Hi Lift for recovery:

Is a Hi-Lift Jack the Best Hand Winch Choice?

Highlift as come-along really work?

Dan's advice to get a winch would certainly make things easier, though.
