Need a Recommendation on a Jack

3650 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  demobud
I recently had an experience where my right front tire blew out at 70 mph. My Mada was very easy to control and get safely to the side. Unfortunately the jack that came with it would not raise the Mada high enough to get the spare on. I ended up having to call a tow truck and have the tire changed by the tow service with a floor jack.

The jack is really chewed up from its single use. The place where rod goes into the jack is very bent and chewed up. I am planning on going back to the dealer and complaining and I expect they will give me a new jack of exactly the same quality and height.

Any suggestions on a replacement that will be of higher quality and be easily stowable?

I keep a 3ton bottle jack in my Mada, as I have done in every truck Ive had since I was a kid. I just dont trust factory jacks since I generally have aload and /or a trailer attached.
I also keep a small length of 6x6 (i've got a small tool box in the back) for the bump up. The jack I have is a little wiggly feeling fully extended.
