Be Carefull with those emergency jacks...

First off, holla at Elvis for getting me the invite to this forum.

So I went on a little offroad adventure and got a rock stuck between my backing plate/dustgaurd/whatever its called and my front left brake rotor. I got out the jack, took the wheel off and removed the rock (while not being directly under anything like I NEVER do). I usually always pull the E brake but recently it has become stretched and in need of adjustment so I didn't bother (stupid). the driveway is on a very slight incline and I didn't block the wheels so you knoooow what happened..




First and last time that jack was ever used!

And then of course after I got that all taken care of and the wheel back on, I broke the sh*t out of my locking lugnut:



So I will be checking out the local service and parts department very soon...

That was my bad # 178623

p.s. Hello everybody!

Re: Be Carefull with those emergency jacks...

Hello Jeremy, welcome to JG!
I'm glad no one was hurt when the jack failed.
Is that your wheel lock that broke too?
Get yourself a nice hydraulic jack and keep it handy, you never know...

Re: Be Carefull with those emergency jacks...

Never liked using the "widow maker" jacks, used it once and it kinda shifted on me while I was placing the jackstand. Since then I vowed never to use it again. Ever!
