so my tj has a dana 60 rear and a dana 40 front. im not familiar with what a stock jeep wrangler came with in any, way, shape or form! im just barely learning mine.

in my particular situation, the rear mounts are only an inch at best below the tube. so yes, i wouldnt have to jack as high if i used that method, but it wouldnt gain much either. as for the front, its worse, the mounts are tube height or a little higher. so i would need to just go from the tube height.

i just bought this jeep and it didnt come with a jack. so i have no means of measuring what a stock jack will do. and no, i dont know anyone with a wrangler so i cant borrow theirs.

so back to the whole reason i started blabbing in this thread.....

BESIDES a hi-lift jack, what might be my options?
stock jack out of a 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck ?
stock jack out of a tj and place a block of wood under it?
go to checker or pep boys or where ever and buy a bottle jack that might accommodate my needs ?

or..... ? ?? ? ?

just get a bottle jack (whether its TJ or a truck jack) and just use wood if you have too.

or you could just get a bottle jack at an auto parts store and use wood if you need it.

im thinking my best bet is to just go to an auto parts store and get a bottle jack, and more than likely use it with a nice piece of wood for added height.

but a question: is the stock jack in your TJ's a bottle jack or the scissors type?
