I use a length of two 2x6s screwed together. It gives a wide 'footprint' and is quite stable by essentially being a 4x6.
If you lift near the body mount just in front of the rear tires, you can jack it high enough where you can access all five mounts (each side at a time). You only have to move it to do the other side and the grill.

|ccwrangler||I just used my highlift on the side with some wood to distribute the weight a bit|

What's the best type of jack to use for BL install?
As the topic states, what is the best type of jack to use to lift the body to install a BL? I currently have a dreadful 3" BL and a 2-3.5" suspension lift. I would like to replace the BL with one that is only 1.25", but I'm not sure what type/size of jack to use. I've even debated pulling my Jeep in to our warehouse on the weekend and using our forklift...but that seems a little sketchy...
