I was looking for information about how tall of a jack I should purchase. I had the problem with the jack not raising the tire enough to take it off. :banghead: I decided to purchase a bottle jack and wanted to know if anyone knows what the height of jack that I should purchase. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it.

I had tried to jack up the back on the frame which the factory jack wouldn't work. Once I had help getting my jeep jacked up and got to a computer, I downloaded a manual for my jeep and saw the jack point locations:
For the front tires, place it in the notch on the body weld seam behind wheel to be changed.
For the rear tires, place it under the axle by the wheel to be changed.

It's on page 305 of the manual, but it doesn't say anything about the jack height.
https://ownersman.com/manuals/2006-Jeep-Liberty-owners-manual

However, I still want to purchase a bottle jack to replace the factory jack. I don't go off-road with my jeep, I just need a jack incase I have a flat tire. I see some listed as minimum height of 7" and maximum height of 11" while others list it as minimum height of 9" and maximum height of 18". Anyone have a clue what height span I should use.

I have a 6 ton bottle jack and some wood blocks. Not sure about the height but the jack is about 8" tall with an acme thread extension.

I chose this bottle jack partly for the size of the base being much bigger and stable than the lower capacity jacks. Be carefull of slipping and tipping especially with snow slick layers of blocks.

Should be stored upright. I sacrifice the seat behind the driver to a milk crate with jack, blocks, jumper cables, tow strap, tie-downs, etc..

I purchased one of these (see picture below) back in 2019 to carry with me when towing trailers behind the Jeep or when towing large trailers or campers behind my Dodge Cummins.
I like it due to it having a lockable Jack Stand built into the hydraulic Jack which makes it so much safer when jacking up a truck or trailer.

I had a blowout on one of my camper's tires on I-75 South coming into Atlanta a few years ago and got to use the new jack.
You have not lived until you had to change a tire on the side of the Interstate in Atlanta when every time a big truck speeds by, the whole camper trailer rocks like heck setting on a hydraulic jack.. Scary as heck! :shock:

I am sure this jack would jack up a Jeep Liberty or most any pickup size truck.
Just be sure and always carry some short pieces of 2x4's or 2x6's to use as a base to set the jack on when using in soft dirt or uneven ground.

I like it but I didn't know bottle jacks had to be stored upright. I am looking to put a jack under the rear seat replacing the factory jack. Any thoughts?
