Jacking the Trailer for Tire Removal
« on: August 05, 2017, 06:16:10 AM »
The Jeep Extreme Trail Edition has a full skid plate underneath. The owners manual says to place the jack "on the frame close to the spring hanger". What is the proper jacking procedure for this model considering that the frame is neither visible nor accessible?

That is an error in the manual as there is no spring axle.
It should be placed just behind the wheel in line with the axle on the skid plate.

Thank-you for bringing that to our attention.
