The basic function of a car jack is to lift a portion of a vehicle. Typically this is used to change a tire although other maintenance is sometimes performed with the use of a car jack.

How to jack up a 2004 dodge ram 1500 quad cab?

place jack under vehicle just to the rear of the front tire's. Jack vehicle up using the frame of the vehicle. *Important* place jack stands under vehicle. I place them under the lower control arm's or on the frame (be sure to use stands that will support the weight of your vehicle). if unsure of the weight, there should be a vehicle identification tag on the driver's door jam that will tell you GVW (gross vehicle weight) on most vehicles. In the rear (if rear wheel drive) jack vehicle up by using the rear differential. When looking under the vehicle it will be the mass of iron centerly located between the rear tires. Again *Important* Use jack stands to support load of vehicle. place jack stands on the rear axle tube's and there u go!!
