Question about Cars & Trucks
If you want to do the job yourself, get a hydralic jack that slides under the vehicle and you pump up away from the vehicle...it's safer than the Jeep jack by far! Before jacking it up,make sure you are on level ground and block the wheels and loosten the nuts on the one wheel you are about to remove. When you jack it up find the strongest chassis metal section nearest the wheel but not so close it's in your way while working. Jack it up, put a jack stand under the metal area near the jack point on the Jeep to catch the Jeep if it happens to slip off the jack. Pull the wheel, mount the wheel with the snow tire. and finish tightening the nuts ON THE GROUND. Reverse the process to get the Jeep on the ground. and finish tightening the nuts ON THE GROUND.

SOURCE: jack stand
jack stands most times are placed under neath the axles however in your case the stands should be placed behind the front wheels on the spot where you whould place a regular jack if let's say you were changing a tire. if your working on the rear of the vehical you should put them under each side of rear axle.

If you have the tent set up its easier to remove the big black box. Theres a cut out of carpet almost in the middle right up next to the tailgate plastic, not sure what you call it, pull that up. Its "U" shaped there a nut underneath it. turn counterclockwise and tire will drop down. my dad could not find his either. Hope this helps.

I have been a mechanic for years and have never really understood why people want to do this. You have a frontwheel drive car. Just get a all weather tire, which you probaly already have and drive with caution in the snow.
