Would a 2 ton jack be cutting it close? Should I look into a stronger jack? Also it's been awhile. There's been ALOT done since I sunk it, here's an update

to do what with?  its more than enough to jack up either end of the jeep.   

Just for swapping tires If I get flat, I have no idea how much comanches weigh, also does this look like the base model ?

Not a whole lot. I think base weight without mods is something like 3200 lbs for a short bed 4wd?

I don't think mines a short bed but good to know

The weight is still around 3200 pounds. I think the distribution is about 60% front/40% rear, so that's 1920 pounds. A 2-ton jack is more than enough.

 

I carry one of these in the back of my Cherokee. I've lifted the entire front or rear axle with it several times. No problems to date.

That's perfect, thank you!

It might not be perfect for you. What size tires are you on? My Cherokee is on stock rubber. I think that little jack would be at its limit (height, not weight) if I were on 31" or 32" tires.
