Where do you jack your rig using a hi-lift?

Having a sahara with the factory side steps and an xrc front and rear angled bumbers I'm am confused as to what locations I would use to lift my rig when needed. I doubt it is cool to lift the truck from the steps and doubt the small arm could reach under anything on the bumbers to crank. Ideas?

By the way, whoever suggested sliding the hi-lift under the back seat in an unlimited is a genius. The thing was made to fit there and doesn't make a peep. Thanks.

With those bumpers your limited to using your shackles as the jacking point. Just make sure you don't go cheap, and pick up shackles that will support the weight of your Jeep. Also watch the angle of your Hi-Lift. When you get the jeep raised up, it can get pretty tippy, and you don't want it coming down...

Lose the side steps and get some real protection. Seriously, the rockers are probably the number one place I use my hi-lift--typically to un-high-center. As for your bumpers, without looking at them, it's hard to say, but I like to place the tongue of the hi-lift just inside a nice heavy bolts or something that is likely to prevent it from sliding off. How long is your hi-lift?

Not many options yet with your setup accpet for what has been mentioned. There is a hi-lift strap that can be used to assist but as said before you might want to add some points like solid sliders. I will recommend also that you use a strap that goes both to the left and right of the hi-lift when in use to help in stability side to side.

One questions is are you lifted? I didn't see that in your sig. I think you could use your stock jack also if not with 35" tires but I could be wrong. Really depends allot on your scenario when needing to lift.

Yeah I have 3.5" of lift on 35's. I'd hate to get rid of the factory steps unless someone bought them seeing as how their perfect. I tried selling them once with no bites. I do like the aftermarket rails they have out so I guess I gotta get more proactive with looking.

You can probably hang the Jeep from the shackles it has. Bought them from tractor supply. Think they said 15k pound rating. Not cheap stuff. Paid like 20 each for them.
