A 2x4 and a handful of nails will cost under $5.


I carry a farm jack, and a wood block made from a 2x4.

I'd suggest replacing* the stock jack. With large tires, on the trail, the little screw jack really could be unstable.

Maybe something like this. I worked one like this (not my rig) on the trail and it was pretty good. There are a number of different brands and configurations to choose from.

* Added: Carry the scissor jack, sometimes you might want a second point of contact for stability. But don't use it as your main jack.

I'd be a little leary of using that but sometimes you just got to McGiver something together.

Ummm just no, no way is that worth 60.00, too many things can be just found or picked up as an alt.

Jack base?

I keep about an 8 inch bottle jack and a scissor jack (about like yours) in my "5"

I have maybe 5 more at the house, one of them is a favorite, a scissor with a knurled pad on top, the pad is about 4" X 6", It's wonderful to use where you might need a wide pillar under something that otherwise might slip off a traditional jack.

As unsafe as people make it sound, I also use 2 x 4 blocks, bricks, and cinder blocks to gain height (if need be).

This $60 contraption looks to be a "Fad" item to me!

Looks neat, but we can improve on it!

I could make something (almost for free) in just a few minutes time, that would surely have the same usage.

Run down to the Salvation Army (or other) and pick out a heavy cooking pot with your desired depth, roll it face down, and set your jack on it.

Drill some 3/8 holes, Maybe some 3/8 grade 8 bolts to anchor it together.

An exhaust air bag jack looks a handy tool to lift your car on your drive.
At 9lbs weight, it's got to be lighter than any other safe jack.

However, I have to admit that I've never used one.

To be honest I was looking for an alternative to my high lift jack . I can jack up my jeep from the front bumper, rear bumper or either side rock slider. They are all strong enough. But with the high lift it'll lift the whole dang jeep up and the handle is dangerous if you don't know how to use it.

Why not use some scrap wood? That’s all I have ever used.

I have a milk crate with a 12”x12”x 3/4” plywood for soft terrain, a scrape piece of 4x4, and a couple or three, 2x4 pieces to help when needed. I also have a small floor Jack & a four way tire iron, to go with it. It’s all in the back of my truck…lol

I am totally unprepared for a flat in my CJ-7. I removed the OEM scissor jack when I did my engine swap. I never had the OEM tire iron. I do have the OEM spare on the spare tire carrier. The only thing I have in the back of my Jeep is a 1” braided line for an emergency tow strap. My plan is to call USAA if I get a flat between home and work, or anywhere in between, until fall when I put the hardtop and steel doors back on for the winter.

I guess I’ll put together a few pieces of wood, a bottle Jack and a four way tire iron, along with my 1” emergency tow line, and throw it in a milk crate in the back of my Jeep.

Why do I own a CJ? I like to “Balance the wrench and the steering wheel”

I've used my bottle jack on the trail several times (mostly to help others, until earlier this year when I ripped my own tire). There cheap, small, throw a few 6x6 pieces into the mix and you're set.
