If your talking about a rolling floor jack just to lift a corner to change a tire or something then most any 2 ton one will likely be fine. If you’re planning on the whole front or rear off the ground then I’d be sure to get something a little beefier just for safety.

I think me meant height-wise, right OP? I have a Craftsman aluminum 2-ton racing jack, which by design, have a limited height, due to having a very low clearance. I was precisely wondering if it'd be able to lift the Pali. I doubt it, but what I'd to is to place it under a 2x8, and use a jack stand if I need to get under the car.

So to answer your question, if you don't have any sports cars, I'd choose a jack with the highest range, and also at least 3 tons, to safely be able to lift the front or rear of the vehicle... although I don't think there's a central jacking point on Palis. However, you could probably lift it sideways with some kind of beam across the pinch welds, like some have done (for what I remember reading). Good luck, and let us know what you end up buying, and if it worked for you :).

The rated ground clearance is 7.9 inches, so anything with 6 inches or less should be fine. Once the vehicle is lifted in the air, you should use some stand jacks before you go under it.

The issue is not the ground clearance, but the clearance needed to lift a wheel, which depends on how far the suspension is allowed to extend (and it varies front to back). I doubt my 15" jack will do the job, but might be close.

That is exactly what i meant. I guess my best option is to lift and measure. I am actually getting the cart before the horse. My Palisade is not delivered yet :)

Thank you all very much
