It's a literal dance around the side skirts, the fuel lines and the pinch weld on the Passenger's side, Driver's side isn't so bad. It does take me more than a minute to get everything just right.

Ease up, adjust, ease up, adjust, get annoyed, 'wonder why it's just an afterthought by Dodge...

I may need to ponder that for next time - I kind of wrote them off as not feasible for the Rango because of the large diameter vs rectangle shape. Yea, it took me a while fiddling with my approach just as you described, but I wasn't chancing anything. I might bug you for your exact recipe if you wouldn't mind sharing.

I actually have it written down, so no problem.

I guess the other thing of note, I've now done it many times, and I'm completely comfortable with oil changes and rotating tires, but with it up on top of the extensions, I would not likely do something like a transmission or heavy work where you MIGHT be yanking on the vehicle with a larger moment, unless I put some extra jackstands or something just incase the unthinkable happened.

I only bought the QJ because I don't have the headroom for a lift. :(

Yep, agree for sure - safety first with me. When I did my underneath projects on the Hellcat, I had it at max height on the 5000 lb unit, but with 2-4 supplemental jackstands just in case. Felt a little nervous at first, but I had it in the air like that for a week and a half, so by the end, was pretty comfortable with it.

I will say with the scheme I devised on the Durango, I only went up to the first lock, but at that height I was pleasantly surprised at the room I had - plenty for exhaust R&R which is on my to-do list, etc., not sure if enough for trans or transfer case though. Also not sure I would stomach it too well at max lift, even though it was rock solid at position 1.

I have the truck adapter pucks/posts if anyone wants to buy them. Used them to get my hellcat like 28” in the air to do oil pan gasket ( I jacked each side up and put wooden stands I made out of wood under each tire first)
