2019 Cherokee Limited. Want to use my 3 ton floor jacks to lift at the pinch welds. They are beefy. The rubber pinch weld pads I use on other vehicles are too wide to fit on the pinch weld because of the molding. So I was looking at metal ones. They will fit. But i’m not sure if metal is a good choice. For example I want to work on the driver side. Or I want to rotate the driver side tires, front to back. As I lift the body, it doesn’t stay level. It tips up on an angle. The rubber pads are forgiving, they flex. What will happen if I use metal pinch weld adapters? Could that possibly bend the pinch weld as I lift? They won’t bend they will stay flat to the Jack. Does anyone use the metal adapters? Am I worried about nothing?
