Cool Jack it up

I went for the aluminum TB wheel.

I usually take the jack that came with SE kit. That and a torque wrench and extension and socket. I have never had to put the spare on thank goodness. I am thinking about putting a newer TPMS kit on that works for up to eight wheels (trailer monitor also) and putting one on the spare.

Sometimes I take the aluminum rolling jack that I got from Harbor Freight if I have room. That way it is easier to jack up The R and take the wheels off to wash them every night on our trips.

IMO

I've started making written notes from the many helpful posts on this forum that I might consider in the future. Good News! I, also, am considering my spare situation & I'm happy to share them with you. The post stated to use a 17" Trailblazer as the spare wheel. A 226 60 x17 tire was recommended. A Trolley jack from Sears & a lug wrench. Since I can't remember ever needing a spare & only having the typical "nail in tire-slow leak", I'm thinking about a portable air inflator approach.


Hope that helps,

Your SSR should come with inflator in box behind drivers seat.
I installed an add on tire pressure monitor that replaces valve cap, a spray bottle of soapy water and a tire plug kit.
I figure I can monitor pressure, if I see starting to drop I can pull off fill it up and if a safe spot find and plug damage or fill up and drive to safe area.
I also have AAA gold for a blowout.

I usually just crawl under the R in my skivvies with my handy toothbrush and coffee cup of water and scrub them real good. Just be sure you clean the toothbrush afterwards so you don't get all that grit in your teeth. lol

Exclamation Max Lift Height

Just make sure that what ever jack you select has enough lift height and doesn't require you jack it up to the MAX. The rear is higher than the front so get a jack that will fit under the lower front and still have enough lift height to lift the rear. NEVER EXTEND A JACK TO MAX LIFT HEIGHT, especially on an uneven surface e.g. side of the road. A medium size floor jack should be fine. A scissor jack's base may not be big enough.
