Dumb question on lifting my Jeep on the trail

What is the best way to lift a Jeep on the trail? Should I get a high jack or can I use the supplied jack? I will be getting a leveling kit but keeping the stock 32's.

If i was to use a high left... how the heck do you lift the Jeep on trail and where do you put it opn a stock JKU??

I don't want to screw it up.

There really aren't any good lift points for a Hi-Lift on a stock Jeep. Unless you have aftermarket rock rails or aftermarket bumpers, I would skip the Hi-Lift. Get yourself a good bottle jack and and a 12" piece of 2" x 12" wood. For most scenarios you'll be fine with that plus the other basic recovery gear.

Thanks guys, I'll check into both of those. I do have Rubicon style rock rails but I am mnot so sure they would hold up under that pressure. They are by Smittybuilt.
