Tire jack

As most of my titles imply, they are straight to the point. My tire jack got bent this weekend trying plasti dip my rims again. It won't go up or down. So, where can I get a new one that'll fit in my trunk?

The one in my 2012 is the same as the one in my prior 2004... At least as far as I remember and it's probably the same as all fords. So junk yard it is or eBay if you don't want a dirty one.

Ford hasn't changed their jack design since the 80's. I picked one up from a junk yard for $10. Cleaned it up with some gunk cleaner, did a light sanding and painted it up. Looked brand new.

24$ it looks like it online. But I'll pick one up tomorrow or maybe a hydraulic one for better support. Ahh admin. -_-

What he said. The only reason to use a scissor jack is when you are on the side of the highway with a flat. To replace the bent one, I'd hit the junkyard as was suggested.

$25 brand new or $10 used and plus the gas to get me there. I have a 4 ton racing jack and stands I got from SAMs awhile back. Best investment for the families cars so far.

If yours is low wait till you see mine. The front end has nothing but plastic underneath so I have yet to even find a low enough jack for mine. Would a hydraulic jack work? Being as its taler and such.
