Default Use jack stands

I dont care how quick the job is, if you will be doing any more than changing a tire (and even then consider it!) USE A JACK STAND.

I dont know who needs to hear this but just imagine your significant other or your kids coming out to your legs sticking out from under a car or truck, and that is the last time they see you.


USE JACK STANDS.

Years ago i made a run on an injured person. He used an old bumper jack and took a front tire off, crawled under the car, car fell off of the jack, popped his head like a watermelon.

30 yrs ago I had a Chevy jack collapse under a Ramcharger... I pulled the wheel and the car landed on the tire. I didn`t have time to toss the wheel under the car.

I ditched all chevy crap and use stands ( I only trust the ones made by me ) ever since.

Don't use cement blocks, especially on a slanted, dirt surface. As a 15 year old, I almost left the planet with this stunt.
