Touch wood, I have only had to change one tyre on the van in 4 1/2 years, and that was on the GRR on an unlevel dirt road. I used the scissor jack that came with the 200 Cruiser, worked fine. The hardest part was locating the jack as I had never seen it before. Oh well.
Stability not an issue. Maybe try ebay or Toyota.

I think I have changed every tyre on the van at some time.

I used the Screw jack that came with the vehicle (200 series landcruiser). Works fine,

I also carry a hydraulic jack to handle springs etc but tuch wood I have never had to use it.

Easy to use either a scissor or hydraulic. I purchased a 12volt electric scissor jack when Aldi had them on last for $89. They are rated at 2 tonne and work from a cig lighter 12v outlet which I have on both sides of the van, as well as in the back of the LC200. Quite a neat piece of engineering, made in China of course, but I think German design. Meets Australian design standards.

Last week I installed an Aldi winch (4500kg) on the front of the Toyota. It's the same XS brand as the Jack and appears to be well engineered as well. At $399 it is pretty good value. Fitted all the bolt holes on the cross member and the Ironman Bull bar. Probably an exact copy of another brand. Seems every bit as good as the ARB winch I have on a Nissan Patrol Ute at our Park.

Cheers..........Rob

I like the bottle Jack.

Super Cheap, Repco or any of the other car part/accessory shops sell them.

Thanks everyone for the info on caravan jacks. I will be able to make a good choice now.
Hope I dont get to practice changing a tyre for a while.
Cheers,
