I always carry a pair of 12 ton bottle jacks--bought very cheap at Harbor Freight. The problem with them is that every stroke lifts very little. It takes quite awhile to jack up a tire.
That is true if I use the manual pump...
My Harbor Freight Special came with an air hose.. it lets the Crafstman 150 PSI pancake job do the pumping,, Usually takes a couple tanks of air, but it sure beats pumping on that handle
