On a scarier note, i had the car fall off the jack while putting stands under it. Jack and one stand were damaged.
Yikes! Glad you are able to tell the story.

Done it before? Good results? I am considering a new vehicle in the future and wondering if that would be a good option seeing as how I am 2 miles from the NH border lol

Is there a reason your pulling the Curt out? Maybe you need the brakes?
I am looking at installing a 4 pin and those plugin things are the easiest way to go.

looking at towing a 4x6 "compound" Vnose box trailer. compound means it has V nose plus the roof is on an angle in the front.
trailer weighs 400 lbs. Motorcycle and gear weighs 400 lbs.

I think I leaned against the car just a little bit as I was sliding the stand under, and thngs were just in the right alignment for all hell to break loose. That or the jack failed somehow. it's bent now so I'm not really sure. I wasn't any where under the car either when it happened, as I as a general rule slide the jack stand under a vehicle with foot first.

Pulled the fake rivets and made them functional.

Flange head bolts
8x M8x1.25 40mm
2x M8x1.25 30mm

Flange style nuts
10x M8x1.25

3/8" drill bit.

Break a lot of the plastic rivets on the inside/liner. Got tired of replacing them.

Got my frame stiffeners for the XJ from ruff stuff. Going to look into having a set made for the liberty so I'll have some strength and locations to weld to for the sfa swap when the time comes.
