I started the recent thread in the DIY section. I put the Jack Stands under the arm mounts as shown in the other thread by retiredguns for the bumper install. It worked great and I used some old blanket material on top of the jack stands so that the arm wouldn't get scratched. I just installed the undermount hitch on my Latitude and this made it much easier.I remember reading on here that someone put axle stands under the trailing arm mounts. I think it was in the DIY section.
If you look at the third picture on the following post you can see it clearly. This is where I also positioned my jack stands: http://www.jeeprenegadeforum.com/forum/498-aftermarket-add-ons/25874-renegade-ready-hitch-kit-installed.htmlThanks Hoodo, just to be clear, you put the stands where the control arm bolts up to the frame correct? Not the lower round pivot point.
This is typical of European cars. BMW, Mercedes, etc. Special jack pads matching the shape of the jack points are suppose to be used.Did anybody notice if you use the marked lift points on the body that the jack will end up crushing the black plastic trim ? If you get down and look under the lift point you will see what I mean.
so here in the states, New York specifically, my wife purchased a 2018 jeep renegade latitude. According to the 2018 renegade user guide on page 292 in the index, it will give you jacking instructions. And it tells you to refer to page 165. When you get to page 165, it gives you all the Jack and the tools and everything else if your jeep is equipped with a spare tire which hers wasn’t, but the lift points or as follows; on the driver side about 4 inches we’re gonna say six overall from the front tire under the drivers door on the sub frame there is a Jackpoint for a scissor jack. On the same side up about equal distance from the back tire underneath the back passenger door, And likewise mirrored image on the passenger sideI just had a look in the handbook (UK models) and I can't see nothing about it in there.
