I agree - I can't think of any structure underneath outboard of the frame other than the fiberglass body.

H F T my problem is I can't see the jack until I kneel. I have the drills, I have the bit, I have the knee pad... I just can't find the hex screw while standing.

There is always the sense of touch….

never in doubt, often wrong

I have the same problem, especially with the front drivers side. For some reason the spray foam insulation covers the crank nut so I have to reallllllly bend down or get on my knees

How about throwing a piece of mirror plexi on the ground? And using that to guide you...
