    Bought a Y spare tire strap this morning. I'm going to copy @singletrack_ftw set up, though rather than use a jackstand/jack combo I'm just going to use a jack stand. After shopping around I found this company which makes their product in the good ol USA. The 'rona has me buying American now when I can. I know this isn't the most space efficient way to carry the spare, but it'll allow me to see out the back window, and dammit it looks cool.

    That jack has become quite popular with the off-road crowd.

    Yeah. I have one and it's actually quite nice to have. I stumbled across them on Amazon a bunch of years ago and couldn't argue with the price and features.

    I just looked at the lift height and damn, color me impressed. 21" which is more than some floor jacks.

    Yup. I've had to use mine on the trail twice and once at home and I'm glad I got it. It's nice and stable and quick to use.

    I think I will get one. I'd never looked at the lift height to be honest but this would be perfect for changing a flat or working on something on the front end. Hi lift will still have its place but this will help takeover some of that.
