What are you jacking for? Probably safest to jack from the side, and if you need the whole bum of the ground, just use axle stands and lift one side at a time

Definately dont jack up from the diff as its only an alloy cast unlike the old steel beam axles.

good thing i asked.
one end at a time then.

xf- we run 2 cabs, and i need to do rear pads, and as i have a 2 tonne jack i usually jack the whole end up and drop onto stands.
