Just curious what you all use for floor jacks to get your Jeep up on Jack stands with those big tires? My Yukon has 31” tires and my Jack (including blocks of woods) barely works with it. I’ll be adding 35” tires to the Jeep and don’t want to use any more blocks of wood.

Thanks!

I had a Daytona 3 Ton (24” lift height) from Harbor Freight a year ago, but returned it shortly after as it kept leaking Jack oil, so I’m a little hesitant to try another.

Well, I use a low profile HF jack and blocks of wood.

Probably the same one I used to have. Is it the Daytona 3 Ton?

I use the HF Daytona 3T. It's smooth and has never leaked on me. I also have another crappy one bought from AutoZone or someplace like that. It gets used when I need a second one for whatever reason, but the Daytona is so much better.

It seems you just got unlucky with a defective one, but in this guy's opinion the Daytona 3T is solid and well worth the money.

I use a Husky 3T. I’ll post back after I mount the 39’s. It did fine for my lift install.

i have two of the yellow Daytona jacks. i bought one and like it so much i ended up buying another one. the first one stopped lifting after a couple years and they exchanged it under warranty with zero hassle.

i have those two floor jacks plus a small one from HF and another small one from pep boys. when i do tire rotations on the wifes car i use all four to lift all the tires at once.

what i need are the really tall jack stands like i saw at my local 4x4 shop. not sure where you can buy those. tall and heavy duty.

I have 2 floor jacks, but a good scissor jack with an electric impact is very quick and efficient.

On the road and the trail, I use the factory scissor jack and a hi lift jack base. I use my Mack daddy impact with a 13 mm socket on the crank bar, lifts it in 2 seconds.....
