Need Help or Suggestions

So I am going to get my wheels powder coated and the turn around time is a day or so but I have no place to "store" my jeep or have lifts to hold my jeep up or a set of spare tires to put on my jeep while the rims are being powder coated....any one have any suggestions or am I up the creek?

Anyone in North Jersey with an extra set of tires and wheels i can borrow for a day?

Isn't powder coating expensive?
Find an el' cheapo set of 29 inch tires and steel rims on Craigslist. Borrow them and resell after--only thing I could think of

Buy a set of jack stands from HF. They are on sale this weekend for $44.99 a pair. You can also use a 20% off coupon.

Get the 6 ton. The 3 ton will not extend high enough from the frame to get you off the ground.

In its stock form, a TJ like yours isn't going to be as high as the JKs. I've got four 3 tons and they just barely make the grade. I wish I had gone with 6 tons.
