If you choose the tow hook, you are to be warned about it slipping and be extra carefuly of the weak point around it. wood, the softer the worse so careful about that , it only acts as a cushion if asked.
SInce when I type and more or less looked over, here is wher I suggest to lift, as in the video if you chose to risk your Life, be my guess. just makesur that camera is on so we can see your mistake. this is clear aas day that you can not see what stares in front of you.
Hey FISH, thanks, never knew. no you won't get that here Lol.. (gee) SUper bowl SUnday
Yes, you can jack the car from a lifting point, (indeed, that's where the factory widow-maker jack goes for changing a flat tire) but it's easier to use the jack points if you are getting under the car, because you only need to jack the car once, and then you put your jack stands under the lifting points.
My experience with our jack points? Without using an extension, you need a fairly long jack to use the rear point, as the hook is high off the ground to begin with. (I use a Harbor Freight 3T Low-Profile.) The front point is better in that regard, but you need a long jack to reach the damn thing since it's smack dab in the center of the car. I wish they had stayed with the old design where the front jack point was built into the radiator support.
Don't worry about that rear point being tippy. As long as you aren't doing something stupid like lifting the rear while you only have one front wheel in the air, it's not going anywhere.
So as we all learn yeah I missed that in my shot Lol. but by the time people talk, talk and talk about where, where and where, the job haas been long done and over. so that said just make sure you do it safe and not sorry. follow ups are great...
