Trying to figure out how to safety jack up my car off-road in the case that I need to put my full size spare on. What do most people carry in their Crosstreks?

Hi-Lifts? Bottle Jacks? ARB X Exhaust Jacks? Scissor Jack with plywood? Seems like only a hi-lift would be stable enough, but that would totally warp the Crosstrek frame. Any community wisdom out there?

Depending on Situation of where you find yourself stuck in, you may need both and or possibly a winch to pull you clear


Worst case :whatdoyouthink:

I bought a small floor jack a couple of years ago, before I got my Trek. This was after I used the abomination that came with the car I had at the time. Also keep a T handle wrench and a breaker bar. Haven’t used it luckily. I’m sure you could also get a nice piece of plywood to help also. A full size spare is a great idea . I don’t off-road, but I’m sure any advantage you can get would help. Happy safe motoring.

Does anyone have pictures on how they use their jacks off-road? I am curious to see them in action. especially the Hi-lift jack.
