I’m a proud owner of a 2021 KRX. When working on my 2019 Wolverine X2 I could use a 4” block on top of my floor jack to raise the machine and put it on standard jack stands. The KRX is too high, need 10” on top of floor jack and regular jack stands are useless.

I can add concrete blocks under the jack and stands but thought I’d ask what do you guys do?

I just toss a couple of 4x4 posts on top of a long reach floor jack. Once up, couple of RV jack stands.

Installation of the rear 35” tires was eventful but not like the fronts. I jacked up the trailing arm. Blew out my floor jack on the second rear tire and had to change to this jack I had, just a lightweight $100 jack I keep in the truck bed.

Now I’m on the fronts. Whoo Boy. Tried jacking the A Arms, knew it didn’t look right and sure enough that’s a no-go. Too many angles and yes I know it’s not recommended.

Ok, old school blocks. Step 1 is a 4” block pad under the jack and put the machine on these blocks.

Step two is another 4” pad under the jack followed by another 8” block under the machine. That put me high enough to mount the 35” tire.

So on the previous machines I just used floor jacks and jack stands. The KRX calls for a 4-post lift. Anything out there in between?

There will be a need to unload the suspension. I didn’t see this one coming my bad I’m a small tire guy entering the new normal.

Rotating tires is out, no way to safely pull two.

If you have a spare tire you can do a rotation. It's still not easy since you can still only pull one tire at a time, but it is possible. I had to jack the machine up four times to do it.
