Default I need to rotate those tires!

I was going to rotate my tires today for the first time on this truck so I read my manual to find out jacking points. It seems they only want us to use that little skiny scissors jack. Crazy! There not enough room between the tire and the shock bracket on the axle tube in the rear to get a any other kind of a jack in there. What do you guys use? I was thinking about doing the way I always did it by jacking up the pumpkin and slipping some fixed jacks in on the tube on either side of the pumpkin. Now I have to watch out for the torsion bar there too. Maybe I need to upgrade my fixed jacks to something skinnier. The front isn't simple either since I have a 4X4 but can I do them one at a time. Has anyone used the frame rails to jack the trucks up? I bet the shops use those because I can't see any other way for them. Thanks

I lost the touch years ago, too many broken knuckels. I use the dealer or my service shop when I get my oil done. I've bought the life time rotation for about $35 and it keeps me going every 5K. My shop uses the frame rails they should work for you too.

If you have the HP2 Tires rotate ever 8000 miles as they have a habit of cupping if not rotated religiously.

I jack everything up from the pumpkin. No issues. If I can't get a floor jack under there, like my wifes Journey, I let somebody else do it.
