Hi-Lift Jacking Question

Hey,

So I'm needing to remove my front wheels but am having a hard time finding what I consider to be a sufficient jacking point.

I've heard rumors that I might be able to use my hi-lift on my rails? I drive an 07 rubi, with stock rails.

Are these strong enough to support the full weight of the vehicle while jacking?

Thanks!

They are great for recovery, but not so good for maintenance. Get yourself a good floor jack.
