Don't use the jack from the boot, it's cr*p and not strong enough. Tried to use mine once for convenience and as the weight came on it it messed the threads up and got stiffer and stiffer until it would not go up or down. That caused some issues. Just waiting to throw it back at the dealer next time I pass.
No problem using a trolley jack with a block of wood to spread the weight just behind the jacking points. You can see where if you look.
