General Q & A / Jacking the Trailer for Tire Removal
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?

Actually been a member for a couple of weeks already and asked a few questions already. But now I'm actually an owner, so I thought I'd introduce myself. Picked up a used 2015 Jeep Extreme Trail Edition camper. It's a little more extreme off road than what I was looking for but couldn't pass it up for the price. Can't wait to get out camping with it as it will be my first "off the ground" camping experience.

Hopefully I will be picking up a used Jeep Extreme Trail Edition camper next week. One of the issues that I'd like to overcome is the fact that I will have no spare tire. Since my tow vehicle is not a Jeep using the tow vehicle spare is not an option. I know I could just purchase a spare Jeep wheel, mount up a tire and stow it in my pickup bed, but I would like a more elegant and space saving solution. Have thought about mounting it on the rear of the trailer or possibly right on the top but that seems like a lot of weight for either location.

What I would really like to explore is the possibility of changing out the axle hubs for hubs with the same bolt pattern as my 2011 Chevy Silverado. That way the same spare could be used for either vehicle as was intended with the original Jeep setup.

Mr Miller, or anyone for that matter, would you know the manufacture/model number of the axle used on the Jeep Extreme Trail Edition? I'm also open the other ideas anyone might have.

Hi all, new to the forum.

Looking for small, lightweight pop up tent camper that I can pull with a Polaris Slingshot. The Quicksilver 6.0 seems to be a very nice option. I also have a Silverado 4x4 so I was looking at the off road version of the 6.0. I am finding it extremely difficult to find a Quicksilver 6.0 Off Road version! No one seems to have them in stock and I can't seem to find any used. Anyone know the MSRP on one of these so that if I have to order one I know I'm not getting ripped off?
