Rear Jack Point: for use with a floor jack

Side jack point, one on each corner. This is where you stick your stock jack. There's four places, one for each tire.

If you do not use the side jack points, this will happen

The front picture is kind of dim. It's right behind the tow point. It is designed for a bottle jack, but a standard or shop floor jack will function just fine.

Note: You should use jackstands in pairs and never go further then 2 clicks from the end. Always use the steel reenforced areas of the vehical.

Using a Lift Ramp Edit

Have a buddy ground guide you onto a lift ramp ensure your vehical is centered, use wheel chocks, and lift your vehical up.

Wheel chocks are your friends and they prevent accidents.

Lift your vehical to the desired hight and then go past that until you hear another set of clicks. The clicking point is where your vehical will settle when fully raised.

When you get to desired hight, go a little higher and then operate the release to let the lift land on the catches.
