Follow jacking instructions to reduce the possibility of personal injury.

WARNING - Tire Jack

Do not place any portion of your body under a vehicle that is only supported by a jack since the vehicle can easily roll off the jack. Use vehicle support stands.

WARNING - Changing tires

Never attempt vehicle repairs in the traffic lanes of a public road or highway.

WARNING - Running vehicle on jack

Do not start or run the engine of the vehicle while the vehicle is on the jack as this may cause the vehicle to fall off the jack.
