I think you can find this same Jack for like $40.00 on ebay.


Amazon.com: TruePower 1-1/2 Ton 3000 LB Aluminum Racing Jack: Automotive


I got a jack that looks identical to this one but was rated 4000 lbs. But I think it's the same jack. It's a rebranded jack from china, but it does the trick.


I took the handles off. So I could get it up next to the tire under the lower control arm. I only have to jack it up an inch or so to get the tire off.


I still don't believe in rotating tires side to side at all. Just front to back.


So many tires are directional anyway.
I'm sorry, but this is terrible advice. You're recommending not only a lo-profile jack (which has limited height), but also a 3000/4000 lb jack.

Do NOT buy a 1 1/2 ton jack, I had one for my old car that I had to use to jack the Jeep up once, it now leaks hydraulic fluid. The 1 1/2 ton is not strong enough to hold up the Jeep and is a massive safety concern.

You need at least a 3-ton IMO.

As for rotating only front-to-back, that's debatable "I guess," but why would you only rotate front-to-back if the tires are non-directional?
