So my floor jack from Home Depot broke today while I putting a wheel. Luckily I was smart enough to put a jack stand there incase it were to fall. But afterwards I tried to use the Nissan crank jack and it wasn't high enough for me to get the wheel back on. Cranked all the way to the top. I have a 2010 Pro4x and I'm curious has anyone noticed this? I went and got a new jack anyways but that was pretty scary to think I wouldn't be able to change a tire without my primary jack.

Where did you place the jack? The one time I had to use the OEM jack I put it under the axle. Is it possible that your floor jack lifted the axle beyond the height that the OEM jack was designed for?

There are arrows marked on the frame for jacking.

Yea I put right where the arrows stamped in the frame are for lifting the truck. It was good 1/2 inch short of getting the wheel in I would say. I threw mine away at this point but those first 6 months if I got a flat and couldn't change it I would have not been a happy person.

Apparently we're all sort of wrong. The manual says to place the jack under the rear axle and on the frame for the front. The frame dips down in the front behind the front wheels and this makes it possible to use the jack there while the frame in the rear is too high for the jack.

I took mine out, after the lift, it would do nothing for the front. Plus when i bought mine from the stealer, they didnt give me all the necessary parts, so i cant even use it :p

I noticed the same problem so I went to Wal-mart and bought a 20 ton bottle jack for about $40, it works great.
