Wheneve I change tires I alwyas put the jack right behind the wheel, any other place will take longer for the tire to be completly off the ground

there's other places to jack the car up aside from the designated place. You can jack your car on just about any part of the chassis

I jacked my celica up from the sides with the stock jack with VS sides...it was fine too, didn't touch it..

make sure you just place it in the right spot.

What about RMM side skirts they tuck in a good 4 inches or more.

i think right at the jack points..I was thinking about gettin the fiberglass cut away at the jack points.

are you sure?

keep in mind that body kit designers would produce the kit in order to be able to use the stock jack and/or the lifts at dealerships...

and RMM? I do not think it would be designed like that confused
