    Default HELP How to remove jack from Jeep Unlimited

    I cannot for the life of me get my jack out on my Jeep Unlimited. I read through the manual but still cannot find out how this thing comes out. I had a blow out last year and luckily it was close to town where my brother came by with a floorjack. Right now I want to venture up in the mountains but will not chance it without being able to take out the jack. Please if there is anyone who has removed their jack let me know the steps.
    Thanks!

    The jack is retained by it being 'opened' into the hole. so you need to turn the handle/screw/nut to 'drop' the jack while it is in it's hole. That will loosen it up and it will slide out..

    you need to slightly lower it by turning the end to be able to pull it out. slightly raise the jack to lock it back into place when you are done.

    Sorry, I just had to do that.
    About a week after we got the JK for wife, I was looking over things and tried to get the jack out. Well after about 1/2 an hour I finally figgured it out. Me, having retired from the Navy as a Senior Chief Gunners Mate, and working full time as an electrician at a large printing facility.

    Just goes to show you us zoomies are smarter (retired Chief Master Sergeant): I had no problems figuring out how to get the jack out. Just don't ask me how long it took to figure out how to turn off the rear dome light in my Jeep.

    Hey, that almost sounds like a chinise fire drill we used to do in the early 60's.

    Clockwise or counter-clockwise?

    Throw in a few jumping jacks for good measure.
