This is a guide on how to jack up your car properly.


  • A Jack


ALWAYS put your vehicle in gear and lock your E-brake when jacking your vehicle up, and use jack stands.

Jacking Points[]

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.

Using a Floor Jack[]

Note: You should use jack stands in pairs and never go further then 2 clicks from the end. Always use the steel re-enforced areas of the vehicle.

Using a Lift Ramp[]

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

Wheel chocks are your friends and they prevent accidents.

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

Lower the lift until it comes to rest on the hard stops (clicks)

Should look like this when finished

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

When it's time to lower the vehicle, lift it up a little, then operate the catch release and lower the vehicle.
