Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

What's up, guys. I'm Andy from 1AAuto. Today I'm going to show you how to raise and support this 2011 Ford Explorer. If there's any parts you need for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

To raise the support the vehicle, there's some spots right here that you could use a floor jack on, on the sub-frame. And you could also support the vehicle from here. It's a better idea to have the support further out.

On this pinch weld here, you can raise the vehicle up with a floor jack or support it with some jack stands. Same with the other side on this pinch weld. Also in the back, right here this pinch weld and this pinch weld. Those are the furthest out and the safest places. You could also lift the vehicle from here and over here. And nothing else on the back.
