I need to know what jack to buy. I figure a small scissor jack and a big floor jack. I amnot sure what they are called but I want the kind that just jacks the car right up. I am just tired of having someone else do it. I want to lift this car myself. Where exactly do the jacks get placed. If you are using parts terminology I more than likely will not know what the part is called but if you tell me where to place the jack I can do that. THANKS, Dr.Bigg

If you are just changing your oil, I would use a set of Rhino ramps.
I have no problems using mine and the clearance is plenty to complete the job. If your trying to get it off all fours then I would use a floor jack that will go down to the minimum height of 5 inches (I have a 3 Ton MVP prolift. I think I got it at Autozone). Then all you have to do is follow the lifting instructions posted on this web site

Thanks speed ratchet. I am getting tired of paying for something I can do myself and actually enjoy getting out there on the car again. THANKS, Dr.Bigg

Remember to have the rear slightly higher than the front to get the most oil out. :cheers:
