Correct me if I'm wrong...

...but if a car manufacturer supplies a jack with a vehicle to be used for flat tires, wouldn't you expect the jack to go high enough to actually lift the vehicle high enough to actually change said flat tire?

but a lot of cars are too low to get the jack and a block of wood under it together. but I would assume its a truck (probably the escalade in this case) that has a problem with needing a big jack so thats a good idea

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

A 4" block to be specific, and even that is stretching it

Company car

Nothing like being stranded in the pouring rain wearing white pants with a blown tire. There goes $130 for new rubber

The lift point right behind the RF wheel. It's the lowest sturdy point that I could get to without having to crawl under the truck.

Re: Correct me if I'm wrong...

I was shocked at the piece of crap jack Ford gave us for my wife's Expedition. Very flimsy, user-unfriendly, and dangerous when compared to others I've used including that on my Audi.
