And to your point, although he didn't say anything, the mere fact that he was putting the wedge's on the tire he was going to soon take off made me spit out my coffee, even though I wasn't drinking any..

At the bare minimum, just look at what you're doing and ask yourself, "is this even remotely correct"? More times than not, you'll know the correct answer.

Re: WK2 jack actually helped someone out (thankfully not me)

Bet ya the wife could have done better. The "Boys" these days are such little wimps. All they do is play Video Games.

I like the Jeep Jack and I assure you it will last more than one job. I like that it's not specialized and I can use it for the trailer. There is better crap to haul around than another Jack. That one will work fine.

I just bought one of these for the Garage

Rand Aluminum Floor Jack 4000 Pound/2 TON/Hydraulic - Amazon.com

Not the best, but my much heavier Floor Jack can't get under the lower control arms because the jack wheels are in the way. I took the handles off the above floor jack. I love my old Sears Aluminum Racing Jack no longer made which I keep at my cabin.

I hate jacking the car up from the body when I don't need to.

First, let me say that you are a good man. It'll come back to you in spades one day you watch! As for me, I'm well over sixty now and if I get a flat it'll be a quick call to one of the tow services that come with my insurance, AAA or AARP. Not that I couldn't change a flat...it's just that like painting the house or moving, there comes a point in life where you just say...No more! I'll pay to have it done.
But what I wanna know was how old was the Cayenne guy, and how could he get to the point in his life where he's driving a vehicle like that and, apparently, never changed a tire? I know I must have changed at least 25 or so flats in my life...especially driving to some of those eight penny nail infested construction sites where I worked as a kid.

Re: WK2 jack actually helped someone out (thankfully not me)

8 penny nail. Never had one in a tire ever. Roofing nails are the killer, where they can be free standing pointy end up. Short sheet rock screws are the next most common.

Thanks YjagetaJeep.

You're just like my father in that, you guys have done your fair share of "wrenching" and have nothing to prove to us whipper snappers. As for the age of the guy, he was around the age of 33-36 (if I had to guess) and had no efing idea what he was doing.

Couldn't agree with you more. My father is a bit a tough guy from BK and showed me and my brother the essentials of getting on in this world without the help of others. I can say its certainly made me more prepared for these moments than some of my contemporaries.

As for your floor jack, that looks like a decent one. I have one for my bike, but obviously that can't hold the tonnage of the WK2

mswlogo

It was a pretty wide screw that enabled him to drive from outside NY to the city bf any warning lights came on (I am sure his SUV has a tpms system)

Re: WK2 jack actually helped someone out (thankfully not me)

Well, it looks like it was a Cayenne that was more than four years old, right? Otherwise, he would be waiting for Porsche roadside assistance. lol.

In all seriousness, I had a migraine trying to read the manual of the Cayenne. It was as thick as a MLB rule book. Still, if I had to change the tire, I would at least be reading it to see where the points for the jack are located. Oh, wait! Real men don't need instructions.

Anyway, Chunderboy, you are a good man. I have seen so many reports of good samaritans being injured while helping others.

LOL, manuals are for sissies.... Well, I just figure one day the good karma will come back to me and if not, it is a story that will make laugh a little to think about watching him put the wedges on the tire he was going to remove.
