Hi All - looking for advice on a Jurgens Exclusive - how / where do I jack it up? I believe that different year models have different chassis structures so not all Exclusive's can be jacked up the same way? All I want to do is jack it up slightly so I can check the wheels to feel if they wobble or anything so I know how the bearings feel..but at same time it will be great to know in case I get a flat (Ive never jacked it up before) - I have a scissor jack for my bakkie and I bought a 2 ton bottle jack - the thing is that my chassis is so low that its a really small bottle jack albeit it says it takes 2 tons - is this safe - then the big thing is where do I place the jack? We tried between the 2 wheels (in the middle) with the scissors jack and it wouldnt lift at all - advice would be really appreciated, many thanks, Mark
i have the 2005 exclusive, if im on sand etc i use a 20 ton bottle jack [ over kill i know , but its what i have in the colt ] ill scrape out the sand / ground about an inch and the bottle jack then fits nicely under the axle just behind the wheel that you intend checking, [ ensure the 4 corner stays are retracted and the opposite side wheels are choked ] it will only lift the wheel you intend checking , if im on cement etc i use a 2 ton scissor jack to get the height up to fit the bottle jack in , again all this is done just behind the wheel you intend checking.
Thanks George good advice ,makes a lot of sense
Search for "WiSur se Karavaan Jacks" in the subject search column. He is using the Adedorff 12V scissor jacks for his exclusive.
Hier is die skakel.
Saw your photo of the Adendorff 12V scissor jack by chance an.d I am also interested.
Out of your head, can you remember the maximum lift height ???
Many Thanks in advance (for the head scratching....)
"can you remember the maximum lift height ???"
Gerd, no I'have never taken it to the top, but according to the load graph it is around 10"
