Default Jacks

I purchased a pneumatic jack for my 1500, I keep it in my bed, in a nice poly bag along with jumpers, 2 cans of "flat fix stuff", flares, "survival kit, etc, etc and when I go on long trips I also throw my spare in the bed. I learned a long time ago it will be hot, humid, cold, dark, raining, snowing, in the middle of nowhere, or even tornadoes when I get a flat. I'm close to 60 and cannot deal with the OEM jack and trying to use it when I need it most, and it breaks or whatever. That's why I keep my spare in the bed, it really bites to have to lower it from under the bed when its in one or more of the conditions I listed above.
I also have a DC impact wrench for taking off and replacing the lugs.
The lug wrench, and jack came to about 200 but well worth it.
