    Brother gave me a high lift jack. I can't seem to figure out how I would sue it as a jack without scratching the heck out iof the truck or ripping plastic bumpers off. Can anyone tell me how they use their's? Maybe a link to a web site? I know how the jacks are used as winch and done that successfully as few times.

    You will need sliders for the sides, this will allow you to lift 1 whole side of the truck.
    A front bumper would allow you to lift the entire front.
    A rear bumper would allow for the rear.

    There are no lifting points on a stock truck, with the exception of the reciever hitch in the rear but I don't reccoment that for changing a tire.

    so with this being said, I will be fine on the rear end lifting since i have a hitch. but whats the best option for me on the factory front. With my 3 inch lift even what size home floor jack would be best and also the factory bottle jack is too short as well right to change a tire.
