Where to find small, portable car jack for the trunk?

I've gotten two flats now in about two months and the POS jack that came in the trunk of the car is a pain to use, and I'm looking for something to replace it and keep it in the back from now on.

Looking for something that will fit under obviously a lowered car and will take up little space in the trunk.

I picked up an electric jack that plugs into the cigarette lighter outlet at Target. It came in a case and doesn't take up a whole lot of room...maybe about the size of a laptop bag. My car is also lowered and it works quite well. I can't remember the brand.

Go to Autozone, they have some nice small jacks that come with jack stands for like $60..

About the lowered part. I have to use the OEM jack to get the car slightly up, then slide the other jack in to make it work, but its not so bad.

Question for you:
Are boobs and hands polarly charged, thus causing the inevitable joining of the two? If so are some breasts simply charged backwards?

On a scale from 0 to 24...wait, 3 to 24, where 6 is the lowest and 12 is the highest, how freaking high re you right now?

She's got you high, and you don't even know yet.

I bought a Duralast 2 1/4 ton floor jack from AutoZone. Ran me $20-25


It's small enough to fit in your trunk without any problems. Though you'll want to find a way to secure it so it doesn't slide around. Nothing like hearing *thud* everytime you accelerate, brake, or turn

Would it fit under a lowered car?
