    When we towed with the Jeep liberty the tow unit jack worked fine. After switch to the Dakota pick 'em up that didn't work so well, so I went to an "automotive recycling center" and tried several scissor jacks. After finding one the right size- low enough to slip under spring perch with a totally flat tire- I used a disk grinder to do a bit of trimming to the top pad so it fit better. Stows in an outside access storage cubby with 12 x 12 piece of plywood and the two piece jack handle.

    Half the places I find this online, the description is of a crank jack. I can't afford the shipping from this seller and can only find it ship to store at Walmart with the wrong description. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    Edit: This was supposed to quote the guy with the easy lift jack video. Obviously it didn't. The pics and description of the easy lift don't match on Walmart's website or on Amazon.

    You can find a decent jack at most any Auto Parts store. And Amazon has a good selection.

    I bought one of <THESE> on sale, & carry in my camping toolbag, works great. I can leave the handle off & chuck the other part in my cordless drill, & up the pup goes....lol

    I carry a small floor jack from HF, ($29.95) and a piece of plywood for it to slide on, it works fast and easy.

    I carry an smaller but older 2 ton and a full sized 4-way wrench that I use around the garage for smaller jobs. I trust that jack to lift the TT one axle, overkill for my pup.

    I carry a small bottle jack, some wood blocks for spacers and a couple of jack stands. I tested everything in my yard to make sure I could change a tire, just in case.

    Don't forget that the spare tiles nuts might be a different size then the nuts on the wheel.
