Low car and flat tire

Hi guys , those with low suspension setting, I was wondering what do you guys bring in your car in case you have a flat tire?
Do you bring wood block? Special type of scissor jack? My pinch weld are in a bad condition, previous owner didnt care, so theyre all bended up... Where do you guys jack?

Thank!

Wood. I have been thinking about sourcing a pair of low profile ramps that Cusco makes, those would be nicer.

low profile floor jack...and a jackstand...a piece of wood to drive onto would probably be a smart idea too just in case

I carry at least 2 or 3 2x4s, at least 2-3ft long, and a harbor freight aluminum jack
like this. (they go on sale often, or wait till they send out 20% off coupons)
https://www.harborfreight.com/15-ton...ump-62160.html

I also leave a electric impact gun in the trunk (mine is from homedepot, its a Ryobi https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-18...P261/205885687)

and a set of impact sockets from HF https://www.harborfreight.com/13-pc-...set-69279.html

test everything out ahead of time, like making sure the sockets will fit in your lug nut bore. for example, panasports pretty much all need thin wall sockets, normal impact sockets wont fit.

if you have a key for your lugnuts or anything, make sure you have a dedicated place to store It, and that it goes back in the same place every time. nothing worse than getting a flat and not having the key with you.

If your car is too low to fit a standard scissor jack at the pinch welds when you have a flat tire, it's really just too low to be driving on the street IMO.
