Jacks

Got my TF 2.5 lift on, and hadn't really thought about it much until now.

What are you guys running lifts using to replace the corkscrew factory jack? Or does it still work? Sorry I have not tried it to see if it would.

Haha.

We asked the same question. Have some blocks ready

Wonder If a larger bottle jack would work?

I've got a High Lift jack w/a stand for use on the road, but they're really dangerous if you don't know how to use them.

For home I've got a hydraulic jack.

Where do you lift from with that KB?

Do they have extended lift arm?

Ya, those are dangerous, used it to straighten fence out, I can see that thing taking fingers easy

They look unstable without the base.

I have the TF 2.5 coil and 33' Duratracs....factory scissor jack works fine for me.

Having said that, I still want one of those sweet Craftsman aluminum floor jacks.

Unless you put on very large tires, the stock jack will still do fine. It's designed to lift at the axle, not the body.
