Hi there. I haven't found any definitive information on how to properly jack up my 01 Sequoia and put on jack stands. Does anyone have a picture?

Well, you can jack the rear end up by the third member (pumpkin) and put the jack stands under the axle tubes. For the front, you can put the jack under the front crossmember (just behind the skid plate). That's what I do when I rotate my tires anyway...

That's just what the manual specifies:

What kind of surface does your jack have? I hate those cup things that end up putting all the weight on half an inch of 1/8 inch thick steel edge.

Where do you put the jack stands on the rear if you can't use the axle? I'll be adding a leaf spring and need to support the rear at a point other than the axle. The chassis?

It's about a 4" diameter flat surface, but that's not the issue. I need to know a safe place to position the jack stands. The groove on the stands is about half the width of the chassis so that doesn't seem safe. Is it safe to place jack stands on the body where the panels are doubled up?

Can anyone recommend a good replacement floor jack for a 2002 Toyota Sequoia? The one I got with the vehicle broke and is totally worthless now.

You've got a tall, heavy vehicle so make sure you check the lift and the weight rating on anything you get. I have a Michelin 3 ton and it has a 21 inch lift. Many jacks only have an 18 inch lift or less. Usually the higher the weight rating the higher the lift.

How are you adding a leaf?

An SUV jack with an extended reach and has an extention is really handy. Lifting by crossmember and pumpkin shouldn't max out most floor jacks. The SUV jack is really needed when lifting by frame or if you have a lift.

Moreover, WHY are you adding leafs? 1 ton axle swap?
