The Family Handyman - - CAR + GARAGE -

You can raise some two- and four-wheel-drive trucks by plac­ing the floor jack un­der the front and rear dif­fer­en­tials. How­ever, not all dif­fer­en­tials are de­signed for lift­ing, so con­sult your owner’s man­ual or shop man­ual for proper jack place­ment. Al­ways place jack stands di­rectly un­der the frame or axles after rais­ing the truck.
