mini jack
Anyone know where i can find a jack that is strong enough to work on the car for long time(i don't really trust the toyota jack) and small enough to fit in my car. Where i can travel around with it.

I'm pretty sure that 99 percent of jacks can fit in your car. How small do you want it to be, and where were you planning on storing it in your car?

dude anytime you are working on the car for any amount of time you NEED JACK STANDS!!!

seriously use the stock jack and get some qualtiy jack stands.

and if you want a small jack to fit in your car do you want a scissors jack or the normal kind.

I've put my stock jack to work a number of times & there hasn't been any problems. Just make sure it's positioned correctly.

working on your car isn't spossed to be a walk in the park on a sunday afternoon.

put some elbow grease into it, you wuzzy. and ya, use jack stands definetly.
