Moving up to 285's - will my stock jack lift my FZJ80 anymore? Just want to make sure I can change a flat on the road still.

???? your new tires are not even 1/2 an inch different in radius from stock - who jacks straight from the ground unless they Have to anyway??? you want to crank that thing 150 turns before it hits the axle housing?? I always put it on wood/cinder block whatever - hell - we've even jacked up houses/cellars with it

x2 - throw a couple blocks of wood in the cubby with the jack.

I also carry a medium sized bottle jack. I think it has about 18" or so of height fully extended.

Love dem stock jacks, especially the older ones that could be opened and rebuilt.

Keep 2 in the truck as they make decent jack stands in the boonies.

The HiLift off road base holds the stock jack perfectly and makes up enough height difference to change 35s easy. Everyone should have one of these on board.

My 80 didn't come with a jack, how tall does the stock jack go? I need to get one before I have a flat.
