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.
