I'll call this a cautionary tale.
The jack for my 2002 Ram 1500 just broke while in use. It's second use.
Get yourself a decent bottle jack and stash it in the cab somewhere. I will
not replace this jack with another identical Dodge jack, it's a poor design,
weak and hard to use.
I was on my driveway when it broke, not on the side of the road.
It rolled very slowly forward - I was behind it. Still damn scary!
It came to rest with the hub on the inside rim of the spare, and didn't bend
anything. (don't have to buy a brake rotor!)
My neighbor has a floor jack I can borrow. (I know, I need to get my own!)
