Has anyone lifted their JL with a Quickjack? I have one rated for 5,000 lbs, but wondering if lifting by the frame is acceptable, or if there are particular jack points that should be used.

Any suggestions on which part of the frame works best?

The bottom. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

In front of the rear lower control arm mounts or behind the front LCA mounts is a great spot.

I understand that jacking from the axle side is what you do when swapping out tires, etc. Don't people jack the jeep up from the frame when they are working on the suspension, etc?

Yes, in the spots I mentioned.

I was joking that you jack from the bottom of the frame versus the side or top
