    Deuce Jack Safety Questions

    I haven't had my deuce jacked up yet. My 5 ton on the other hand, I regularly am doing maintenence on the brake system and bearings. The 5 ton empty is over 20k lbs. I'm wondering since I don't have a big floor jack, will the base touch the diff pan or does the center of the base hit the oil...

    Deuce Jack Safety Questions

    We're not dealing with cast metal center sections like on regular vehicles. Someone show me a Rockwell with a damaged diff pan from jacking. They are built pretty stout to be the lowest point on these trucks and the first thing to contact terra firma after the tires.

    A jack point is a jack point. The drain plug is protected by the bung surrounding it. I've lifted my 5ton numerous times, even questioning picking it up there and have yet to see any type of fatigue on the diff. On another note, that cribbing looks interesting in the picture haha.

    Deuce Jack Safety Questions

    I'm pretty sure I looked in the tm and the center of the diff is a lift point on a Rockwell axle. Don't quote me on it, I cannot access the tm's on my cell phone and do not have a computer handy.

    Deuce Jack Safety Questions

    I put the bottle jack on the drain plug in the center of the axle on my 5 ton, then put a 12 ton jackstand on each side of the axle where they can sit flat on the square axle tube. It's easier on these heavy trucks to jack up each axle evenly and have both tires off the ground.
