Jack Recommendation

So what do you guys have in your trucks incase of a flat tire on the road?. I have a small floor jack in a plastic case from Sears but its so damn heavy and large. Any ideas for something small and light weight??? Remember that I have 35" tires so the axles are a bit higher then normal...

I have two factory LR Bottle jacks. I also have 35's and they work out fine. I also carry a highlift too.

I carry a HiLift for ease and speed. I also carry the LR bottle jack which Mike Hippert pointed out needs some work. It will not extend all the way.

If I can find that link I'm gonna fix it.

LOL!

I like the land rover bottel jack! But it needs to be stored upright otherwise it will stop working just when you need it! It always worked for me with 35s, no matter what jack you use it may not be big enough at times, but for the most part the LR jack dose what is needed!

I tried the short skirt but the only place it worked for me was San Francisco.

The OEM Jack is pricey. Try Griots. They had a nice one. I believe any tractor supply store will have a bottle jack as well....

Carry a ratchet strap and a high lift. Strap the axle up and lift on the slider. No need to carry an extra jack.

A decent bottle jack and a hunk of wood should work. The bottle jack should be small and fit almost anywhere. Hilift is big and a pita to get out to use. Ditto with the ratchet strap...

I agree, I carry a Hi Lift but 9/10 times a bottle jack and a a few 4x4 pieces work great and fast for changing a tire on the trail. Various sizes of wood should be a part of every wheelers recovery kit.

bottle jack and Hi-lift base for changing a flat. You can also use the bottle jack on the trail if you get hung up on your diff. Put the bottle jack under the diff lift it high enough for clearance and drive off of it. Better and safer than a hi-lift. Yes I do carry a hi-lift too.

Same here, hi-lift and I keep the bottle jack in there as well.

If you want a new bottle jack, you can snag them off e-bay sometimes. Or get a different brand one from some place like northern hydraulic or harbor freight tools.
