The factory jack is a [bottle type] dont remember the real name for it. As long as you can get under the axle. Ie not buried under mud or water. It will work in 95% of the situations you need. Extreme rock crawling excluded.I guess it was a noob mistake to buy one for the Mrs' Jeep. Was going to buy one for mine. I agree, they make me nervous but I thought they were a must on the trails. I'm assuming if you get a flat you can limp it to a nearby area on a trail where you can get under it to lift it with the scissor jack?
X2I know too many people who have a farm jack on their rig and never use it. It's almost like having a light bar: sure they have their uses, but there are better ways.
Yes, I do the same. It fits under the rear seat nicely out of site.I have a 12”x12” piece of 3/4” plywood that I keep in the Jeep to act as a base for the bottle jack in sand/loose dirt.

I bought the 3 ton model. Half the price. Same lifting weight. Not sure the difference.This is what I carry in my Jeep. I use my Hi Lift for leveling my deck, lol.
