Jacks

Where, besides ebay, can I find an OEM style jack for a CJ7? They aren't easy to find. Plus, I've never seen one in person, so I wouldn't know if I found one that was interchangeable. I'm waiting for the day that I have a flat tire and no jack. I considered getting one of the hi-lift jacks, but I don't want to mount it on my front bumper or anywhere else hanging off the outside of my jeep (daily driver). Any thoughts on either of these matters?

Ive got what im almost positive is the OEM jack that fits in the little strap behind the pass wheel well.

I keep one of those hydraulic cylinder jacks (and a few blocks of wood) in a trunk behind my rear seat. I find lifting with the tall cylinder much more convenient than the OEM jack, even with my stock suspension. But it's a good idea to place the OEM jack (or some other jack stand) under the vehicle before removing wheels, just in case. I haven't always done that, though.

Like JOECJ, I have a bottlejack in the box under the passenger seat. They are very small. a few blocks of wood and that jack.

I'm pretty sure I have the original jack in my Jeep. It's a scissor jack driven with a power screw. I actually analyzed it in an engineering design class earlier this semester. If anyone would like to know there's a Factory of Safety of 2 on it considering the compression members in buckling.

And that doesn't interfere with the seat lifter? If not, I could easily go that route.
