Tire Store Lift of PacHy

I went to my local tire store to switch out my winter tires and this is the device they used to lift my PacHy. They just flat-bedded it even after I told them it was a hybrid and they needed to be very careful of the battery pack under the van. You can see the yellow lift points they use for Teslas but they didn't use anything on my PacHy but the big black flat surface.

Should I expect trouble down the road?

So no risk of crunching the battery or any high voltage wires running under there?

Jack points are on the pinch welds just like any other car. The battery pack is in where the stow and go seats normally go. Nothing hangs below the pinch welds.

I jack up at the pinch welds to swap tires twice a year.

You'll be just fine.

To go into a bit more detail, I would imagine the jack points are exactly the same as the base Pacifica 'L' since that's the platform upon which the PacHy is based. I believe FCA chose the 'L' since it does not come equipped with Stow n'Go seating, making the conversion a bit easier (and, more importantly, cheaper). Of course, that means we PacHy owners also miss out on some of the features the Stow n'Go versions get, but, hey...

It might also be said that, without the popularity of Stow n'Go, a PacHy might never have been built. Even further, maybe this is a reason FCA's minivan's competitors have eschewed a hybrid version. Simply put, it would be much harder (i.e., more expensive) for any of them because they'd have to create a completely, purpose-built, brand-new platform to accomodate a large, HV traction battery.

What's a preferred way to get two wheels up at the same time for tire rotation?

You'd need a lift to lift more than 1 wheel at a time. Unless you get crafty with 2 jacks (sketchy?!?). The only lift points I've seen are the tires and the pinch welds.

A spare wheel / tire could be used for easy DIY tire rotations with only 1 jack.
