My lift is high enough I can get under the car pretty easily too!

Until you mentioned it, I never even thought about the fact that that the car jack I have is probably not going to be high enough to lift the car to change a wheel now. I better throw a couple of bits of Jarrah I use for chocks in the back of the car..

Sounds like you really need to change those gaskets.

Thought of those too i have one similar to that.
My oem car jack was lifting car with 3 planks under it. I had some wood block that i was having in car earlier too for my hydraulic jack. Wood blocks are not taking space but they not good for ground just for some solid asphalt or similar. Of course in garage or in yard you can have planks or blocks no prob but in middle of road or forest you must be prapared at least i like to have in car something for any situation.

Having said that, how great would car stands that looked like Yodas or Ewoks be!
