Car Jacks - Caliper Cover Install

So everyone knows by now that the 2012's don't come with a jack. I'm looking to take off the wheels one by one to install a set of caliper covers. Anyone know which jack is the best/correct one to use for 2011 + mustangs? There's tons of conflicting info out there...

Did you get the performance pckg that replaces the spare with a "tire mobility kit"? My 2012 premium has a spare so there is a scissor jack, I painted my calipers removing one wheel at a time with it and it worked great. Once you do get a jack here is a useful photo..

That photo is super helpful for jack placement, thanks. I have MCA edition, but not the performance package. It didn't come with the space or the scissor jack. Does it happen to have the part number on it? Maybe I can order it...

Re: Car Jacks - Caliper Cover Install

For the price ford would charge for a replacement jack you may as well buy a hydraulic jack and stands....they'll come in much handier. I'm buying some for when I store my stang this winter. You can also find generic scissor jacks at auto parts stores. Regardless here is the only number I could find on my stock ford scissor jack
