Do I really need wheel chicks?

CHOCKS. Not chicks. Gotta love auto correct.
Anyway, the answer is YES!
I was putting on new shocks today and I always chock my wheels. Well always except today. It slipped my mind and my jeep slipped off the jack. I had a jack stand under the frame but it tipped it over and the lower control arm landed on it. Took a nice divot in the cement in my garage and left a stain in my shorts.
Landed on the rotor. Everything seems ok. Scary stuff. Slow down and be safe.

Close call reporting. OSHA would be proud.

Please specify the replaceable parts. Parts like toes, fingers etc are harder to replace.

That photo is the best!

At least the man has common sense enough to not work on a rainy night with a candle hanging on a string tied to the bumper.
