Cool Scissor Jack

I been in the market for a while trying to get the original scissor jack for my 2018 Jeep Compass Sport.
Can you get a good replacement on the market that I can use? Like Ford F150 or Dodge Ram?

Any advise is highly appreciate it.

There is nothing special about the stock jack, its a very basic piece of equipment you can find dozens like it for around $30 online and possibly in your local parts stores. Just make sure it has an adequate weight rating, just about anything works when you are only lifting one corner but I like to play it safe so I'd maybe spend a couple more bucks for a 2-ton.

You need something to take wheel studs on and off, I think the most economical option is to buy an inexpensive beam-type torque wrench like this ( https://www.menards.com/main/tools/h...2123492&ipos=2 ) and in the tool isle you can buy one individual 1/2" drive socket to fit your studs, I think its 3/4 or 19mm. This tool gives plenty of leverage to remove a stud, and allows you to put them back on at the correct torque, and has no complicated mechanical parts or springs to wear out, sturdy and stores easy.
