Having to carry around these jack pads just seems like a pain in the xxx to me. You will always have to explain it to the tire shop, and more likely than not the guy doing the work will not get the message or forget to use them, and/or loose them in the shop. Just seems like some sort of low profile pad at the jack points should have been built into the vehicle. Are there any after market pads that can be installed and just left on the jack points?
I guess you could make something to fit in there and stay but it may get ripped off by low curbs or somehow fall off.
For me I am gonna take the UMC outta the trunk so I figure it will be a net lose of weight.
