You'll be doing a lot of jacking if you try the frame.

Are you using the stock jack? It has a little "c" shaped to that mates up perfectly with the axle.

If you are using some other jack, just put it under the axle tube, make sure its secure, and jack away.

mine came with some factory version of a highlift... I have the mounts on the front of the frame on each side.... never tried it yet. I always use a floor jack under the pumkin on the right side and under the spring on the left side.

Great, thanks guys! I used the factory jack under the axle. The wheel was stuck on there pretty good, but nothing a sledgehammer couldn't take care of!

brush on some permatex anti-seize before re-installing your wheel so next time you wont need the sledge.
