And no matter what tools/jack you may use, always remember to pull that fancy spare tire cover off periodically and make SURE you have air pressure in your spare. Don't know why they are sometimes low or flat since they are not used, but it happens sometimes. Murpheys Law, I guess.

I'm surprised at how few voted for scissors jack. My TV scissors jack can easily lift my trailer.

My first choice will be my cell phone. Next would be plugs from my quad. I do carry a small air compressor. Last thing would be my truck jack and 4 way lug wrench.

I can change a tire faster than it takes for road side service to arrive... so unless it is snowing or raining out I will do it myself...(till I am no longer able)

I screwed marine plywood in increasing lengths together to make ramps to drive up on- These ramps also come in handy when the campsite is not very level-JMHO- DD
