Extension handles are hidden under the carpet along the passenger door. Had to ask the dealer where they were when I saw them in the manual. Felt like a doofus.

A factory scissor jack or a small bottle jack is perfect, and a high lift is not needed if on flat ground.

A waste of money, IMO, unless ya use it for recovery.
The stock jack works just fine for tire changes and there's much less of a chance of bodily damage (to you or the Jeep)

Go to any salvage yard you can get the original jack and handles for 10-15 bucks. They are a dime a dozen. I bought a small floor jack for like 50-60 bucks I like it better because it is faster and easier to jack.

I grew up with high lifts, i prefer them hands down. Sure the stock jack is fine for mall crawlers but like I stated above they dont always work out so well.
Another fine example is loosing a bead in 1-2 foot of mud. BUT I would love to watch someone use the stock jack in that situation.

I bought a medium sized bottle jack and just keep it in the Jeep.

Sure, in some situations, a Hi-lift is a better choice than the stock jack.
If in 1-2 ft of mud, I'd consider that recovery use to get a flat changed.
Also, if in mud that deep, it's easy to get beyond the safe working height of a Hi-Lift!

Don't go jinxing yourself now!!!
(especially with muddy/slippery hands!!)




I'm not saying the Hi-Lift is a death trap or a useless piece of off-road gear. But the OP seemed to be looking for just the tire jack and not a piece of recovery gear.
And with it seemeing like they are somewhat new to Jeeps, just saying to get a Hi-Lift without letting them knowing the dangers it involves isn't good Jeepmanship.

Thanks for the cool videos. A decent bottle jack can be very useful if you use your imagination, physics and respect the law of gravity.

Stock jack is good upto 35's, Just carry a small square of plywood as a base for it and your set.
