Jacking points?

Anyone have any idea where my jacking points are for the rear of my 110? I found the two holes for the front but cannot for the life of me find the ones in the back? Am I wrong in thinking there would be front and back?

You have to remove the NAS rear step. It uses the jacking points for attachment.

Great! Thanks, If I keep the bumper on, cause I am thinking taking it off when I change a rear tire could really slow down the process, can I use the Hi-Lift at the base of the step? Below the tow hitch?

I had a muffler shop weld on a couple of approx. 1 inch diameter pipe each side, right at the frame rails. I LIKE the NAS step, and wanted to keep it!

You can definitely use the hitch itself, by putting the tongue of the hi lift INTO the receiver.

An even safer method is to get a shackle and hitch attachment, then use the tongue of the hi lift inside the shackle (from outside the receiver). This is a bit safer because the shackle will not roll off the lip of the tongue on the high lift.

Be careful lifting from the rear like this though. You've effectively made your truck into an unstable tripod when you lift it from the center with a hi lift.

I would recommend getting your hands on a video that reviews basic on hi lifting and recovery. Far too many people have no idea of the danger in using a weighted hi lift. This is the video I would recommend: http://www.bb4wa.com/products/DVD.htm
