Just rotated my tires since I now have 10K miles on the truck. I jacked up the truck as normal in the rear using the axle tube and used the lower control arm in the front as per the manual (exactly per the manual and the manual has photos which I followed to the letter). I used the factory jack in the front and a hydraulic shop jack in the rear.
The lower control arm in the front is aluminum and the jack made some marks/indentations since the aluminum is soft. Why would Chrylser advise jacking the truck here? I assume with multiple jacking/tire rotation and maintenance etc, the dents will deepen.
I see some other beefy frame areas in the front behind the bumper, anyone try these?
Here are the photos of the slightly dented lower control arms. It not structural damage, but it seems stupid to jack under aluminum parts, even though it is beefy and molded for strength.
