Does anyone happen to know what types of tire jacks, if any, were supplied with B-1 trucks? If so, do you have pictures of the jack top? After a couple of flat tire incidents I have realized the need to invest in a different jack for such emergencies. In the past I've carried a bottle jack, but when placed under the frame it can't lift the frame high enough to get the spare tire onto the hub, as the spring action keeps the hub near the ground. The bottle jack is also too tall to get under the axle, which is pretty much on the ground when the tire is flat. All four leaf springs have a circular cup on the bottom that appears to be intended for jacking, and the placement makes perfect sense, on the rear of the rear leaf springs, and on the front of the front leaf springs. But I'm wondering what type of jack (or jack top) was intended to "mate" with these cups. I looked through the product literature and owners manual and only found information about how to dismount and remount the tire on the rim, but nothing about raising the truck off the ground. Attached are two pictures showing the cups on the leaf springs that I'm assuming are the intended jacking points.
