AzTJ Mine came with a scissor jack... maybe it depends on where it was sold. I donno. That's new to me. Every car I've bought has come with a scissor jack.

AzTJ Not that I'm aware of, but is Sears sells a Craftsman one, I'd get one of those.

Just be sure its a 3ton or better jack. Should be able to find them for around $20-$40.

TJ's (And most cars) come with scissor jacks. Bottle jacks can be bought at Harbor Freight or other tool stores for fairly cheap.

whats a good jack.

i have a yj with a 2in body lift and 32in tires.

spring break is coming up and i was planning on going on a road trip to the beach with some friends.

i just got new tires so im pretty sure that i wont have any problems with them, but i like to always be prepared. every since last year when i had 2 blow outs on my camaro back to back on a trip.

i REALLY HATE those scissor jacks, i was thinking about just getting a bottle jack. im pretty sure i dont need one of those hi-lift jacks.

what do you guys recommend, what is a good jack?
