Stuck living in a 100 year old shanty with a garage designed for a Model A. It's too small to work on the Silverado inside. Thus, oil changes, etc. are done on the gravel driveway. What a pain!!!! A larhe piece of plywood saves the back when crawling underneath.
I use ramps and jackstands to change the oil. But, when it's time to rotate the tire or if I want to raise the truck higher than ramp-high by using a jack and jackstands, the standard hydraulic jack with small metal wheels doesn't work on gravel. And, years of heavy physical work have taken a toll on my back so I don't want to be fighting to shove a regular jack through gravel.
I searched the Web with no luck...... seeking a hydraulic jack with rubber tires large enough to handle gravel. Surely others have needed such a jack!!!!
If there aren't any, here's a chance for an entreprenuer to introduce a new product.
If there are no rolling jacks with large tires should I try one of those hydraulic "post" jacks; the critters that send a steel shaft straight up? Should I place a sturdy board between it and the truck's frame to spread the pressure?
Any leads, tips, hints, etc. most welcome!!!!!!
