How do I use a hi lift jack?

First remove your jack from the mount.

Then, chock your tires with wheel chocks, rocks, or logs.


Next, find a flat area of the rock sliders near the mounting points.


Notice on these stock Mopar rock sliders,

you have a smooth, flat surface all the

way across making it easy to find an area

to set your jack. You do need to set the

jack near the end of the Jeep you'll be

working on.


On my Poison Spider rock sliders, on the other hand, I had to make sure I had a flat point of contact before starting to jack my rig.






Your hi lift jack has three positions you will set to move it up and down.

1. The up position which allows you to raise your vehicle. You will push the silver lever up to engage this position.








2. The down position which allows you to

lower your vehicle. You will push the

silver lever down to engage this position.
