Standard Jk Jack from Factory

Would love some info on this factory jack in the JK rear compartment - would this even work if I have a 3.5" suspension lift?! If I don't need the extra weight back there I don't want it.

Appreciate the help!

Aev makes a jack stand base to help with this. I just bought a hi lift.

The lift has nothing to do with your jack not fitting. A lift will not raise your axles. Your questions needs to be based on the size of your tires, which does raise your axles. The weight of the stock jack is so minimal that it should be of no concern. If you are seriously getting that particular on weight, consider a diet.

Thanks - and I will look into diets...

I'm putting 35" tires on ASAP, and don't plan to go on trail until I do - that being said - is the best option a bottle jack? See some other threads saying they're pretty good - but are they stable off-road?

A bottle jack is actually going to weigh more than the stock scissors jack. If weight is a concern the AEV plastic base is your best bet. It will also offer more stability off road than a bottle jack.

I always toss three 2x6 each cut at about a foot and a half in the back of the jeep. I can stack them as a base for the jack. Not as pretty as the AEV but gets the job done and the boards can have other uses off road.
