I've had the car on a lift and the arrows embossed in the rocker panels piont to where the optional Fiat jack should go, but a floor jack is another animal.

Has anybody jacked it up?

Nope , but I am planning on going in deep this weekend. We may need a wood block to get the floor jack properly situated at those jack points. Or find a bit of sub-frame to hook up to.

Yes, each underside has 2 spaces for a jack, front and rear, where there is an indentation. Of course you need your own jack and spare tire. My old subaru jack seems to work.

Allen in Vermont #496, very happy with the car.

Changed all four wheels this weekend with it up on a standard Craftsman floor jack placed under the main frame members. Lifted one side of the car, changed out the wheels, then the other side. No issues with fit.
