I have a 1989 YJ and there was no jack, did it take the bottle or scissor jack and where is a good place to get one?
The Hi-Lift isn't the best jack for changing a tire. It just isn't stable enough.
My 1987 came without a jack, but had the bracket for a scissor jack. I got a jack from a local fellow that parts out Jeeps and builds off road vehicles.
For changing tires, your best bet is use an original bottle or scissor jack under the spring or axle and a block of wood. When I go out on the trails, I bring a 12" X 12" piece of 3/4" plywood and a short length of 4X4.
I have 31s and my spare tire would destroy my tailgate, so for daily driver duty I carry a can of Fix-A-Flat. For the trail, I toss my spare in the back where my back seat used to ride or if I feel particularly strong, I strap it down in my roof rack.
The Hi-Lift is great for recovery. There are many accessories to make it even better. I bring a chain and a come along besides all the other gear in my recovery tool box.
I haven't had to use my winch yet.
Good Luck, L.M.
