Temporary Jack help
Im planning on going mudding this weekend, and wont have my hi lift jack available to me. I still have the stock scissor jack that my wrangler came with, but i have a 2 inch lift and 35 inch tires. is there anything i could do for this weekend in case anything happens and i need to use it? should i bring some bricks to stack it on or is that not safe? what are my options?
thanks in advance for any answers

Not bricks...a mess of 2x4s or 2x6s about 8 or 10inches long.

The stock jack will lift 35's.

and, you can also hook up your strap then pull it in a window or something. That way if you do get burried in there you won't have to go swimming to get your towline hooked up to the frame. ;)

I would also recomend that if you have to change a tire that you pull it out of the mud first, then change it. hehe :)

Scissors jack????
Trash it and go buy a 3 tier bottle jack.

And of course the best way to not get stuck is to not go... Nobody plans to get stuck..

I keep 4 8" 4x4 in the Jeep for that and other uses.
