Re: How big of a floor jack do I need to carry?
The biggest problem with bottle jacks is you have a heck of a time getting them under the axle when the tire is flat. That's why I went with the sissor jack setup. Plus, with the extension and ratchet end, it's a piece of cake to jack up the truck. I also carry a 1" hunk of plywood and it will slide under the axle with the sissor jack. I use Velcro to hold the jack on the plywood and push it under the axle with the extension rod. If you've never seen a Chevy sissor jack, you should give it a look. It works and works great.
