Need a recommendation for a jack... other than a HighLift

For 35s, I'm thinking a bottle jack is still the best option for the street - for a couple reasons:
1. Very easy to stow
2. Very stable/safe for street use
And most of the time, the HighLift will NOT be on the Jeep. I'd rather not have to also carry the big ol' block of wood needed to make a standard bottle jack work with 35s. Before I just grab whatever's on the shelf... anyone have a recommendation or advice. I don't think I've ever bought a bottle jack on purpose before ;-)

Here's what I use. $30 well spent.
Built in jack stand, cradle that fits nicely under the axle, wide stable base,plenty of lift for 35's, stows away in a tote behind my seat, and did I mention it's only $30.
