Flat tire?

I was trying to take the wheels off the Tacoma today to sand and paint... well.. My jack wont go tall enough to even touch the frame.. the jack stands just barley touch the frame all the way up while truck is just sitting there...

So now I have to paint wheels on truck

Got me thinking.. WTF would i do if I got a flat? I'll have to call a tow truck

(btw have a 3" lift)

Taller bottle jack. Also the stock jack is used on the rear axle and at the lower control arms not the frame.

I carry some 12" pieces of 4x6 of some sort of hardwood I got from a pallet for that very reason.

This. The OEM jack is designed for changing a single flat tire at a time. If you have a lift installed, the jack would still work under the axle or control arm.

If you are working in your driveway or garage, put wood under the jack. Depending on temperature, the jack can actually damage the pavement.

honestly had no idea there was a stock jack

I'll play dumb woman card...

I thought about putting it on the axle but didn't know where the jack stands would go best.. I really don't want to paint them on the truck.. plus the calipers are nasty looking so would like to shoot them with the paint as well lol (I got caliper paint)

It's for a 1st Gen, but close enough. For the rear see Fig. 9 - the jack goes under the U-bolt perch.

The jack stands can typically reach the frame in the front. Use any low-hanging crossmember.

In the rear, put them under the axle as shown in this thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...09-tacoma.html

The factory jack should be under the rear passenger seat in the storage area!

Apparently I needed a walk through with the purchase.. lol thank you

I shall finish my project tomorrow! I was a bit frozen after sanding down 3 of the wheels....
I had them balanced today as well. MUCH better!! Also had them but the gazillion of weights on the inside of the wheel.

No doubt. I knew it had to be those wheels and tires bc the others ones rode great. Post some pics of the wheels when you're done, I'm interested to see how they turn out. I considered using plasti-dip on them myself.

Sanding and painting takes a long time! I found this out while doing my sliders. Took three days and still needed more coats.

If the shop did dynamic balancing (i.e. you see the wheel spinning on the machine at speed), weights on the inside or outside of the wheel actually matter, necessary to take out wobble. Though on relatively new factory wheels it wouldn't matter as much.
