I carry a 2 to floor jack in my vehicle all of the time. It has a handle that works 360*. That is nice as you do not have to have the jack straight to get it to work. It also had an insert the can be put in to make it taller if you need it. I also have a piece of plywood to set in on to keep it from sinking in soft  ground

      I took a 3" piece of 2 1/2" steel pipe and cut it down the middle. Drilled a hole in it and fasted it with a bolt to the top of a scizzors jack. This is placed under the axel and with a that folding 3' tool it is a breeze to use.  I've only really needed it once but it was well worth the trouble of leaving it in the truck forever.

very legitimate concern kingperch!!!  i get texters coming over in my lane a lot.  i just brace myself now(drive a 3/4ton truck) and dont move.  i need a new truck anyhow, so maybe i can get a texter idiot to buy me one. maybe teach them a lesson or just get them off the roads.  it just happened the other night on my way trout fishing.  a passenger must have said something at the last min she swerved violently back in her lane just in time. i bet she didnt miss me by 4ft!  i would never change a tire on the side of a busy road these days. no way!

i used to keep a chunk of 4x4 in my truck to pull axil up onto, like the tool taxi posted. works the same for free. lol  only had 1 blowout in 30+yrs of towing so not major life factor really. lol 
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

I lost a good friend, whose family owns a service center and high end towing service, by a texting driver. He was doing his job, as he always did for 30 years. He had a few close calls before that day. I’ve told my son, while towing his bass boat, if he can’t get to a rest area or a parking lot, to use his AAA account we got him.

Stay safe everyone!!😎

I worked with a guy that ended up being a cop that had someone pulled over, and some woman slammed into him and his dog even though he was on the shoulder of the road. Killed the dog and nearly broke every bone in his body. Lucky to survive. I'll bet he feels it on humid days!
