What is the preferred options for jacking your Sasquatch rig off-road? Im heading to Utah next week and have a Farm Jack, Bottle Jack, and Stock Ford Scissor Jack. If we need to change a tire or fix Tie Rod which is the best option you may have used? I have an Everglades and the wheel lifter, for my Farm Jack, doesnt fit in the rim holes. I did a practice lift yesterday and since the top of the farm jack tends to lean towards the car I opened the doors to jack from the rock slider. Picture for Attention.

Unless you have aftermarket frame mounted rock rails I wouldn't recommend using them as a lifting point.

In order of preference form your particular list: bottle, scissor, farm (high-lift). Carry a block of wood to increase height and base stability.

Also, (insert witty and immature jacking-off road joke here)

I might add something to place under it for extra stability

A lot of people swear by the off-road floor jacks. I bought a badlands to see the hype. Just wasn’t impressed honestly, sure it’s a great Jack and works in a variety of terrain. But it’s just sooo heavy and expensive and takes up so. Much. Room.

I got the power built bottle Jack, it’s safe, light, jacks up really high and has built in Jack stand as well. Used that, hi-lift and badlands off-road Jack. I prefer the power built bottle Jack now. It works on my lifted bronco just fine.
