I am thick and claustrophobic, I run the Jeep up on 2, 2×4’s to raise it up to fit under it and work more comfortably. It will climb the 2×4’s easier if it is in 4 wheel drive. Do this carefully. Make sure the 2×4’s are in the center of the tires. Place the Jeep in park, set the parking brake, chock the rear wheels. If it don’t look safe, make it safe. Put the keys in your pocket.
