It is possible to jack up the car with these skirts on if you got a flat...I found out firsthand tonight. I ran over a nail or something and my tire deflated...almost came off the rim. I was able to get that POS jack under the fender and jack up the car enough to get the wheel off and the donut on. AND if you got a box in the trunk...no problem..just push the rear seats down and slide that baby back about 4 inches and you're set. Thing that sucks is, you'll need a new tire like me :(

RE: for those of you with stock 16" rims, Wings West side skirts, and a flat tire...

hey man same thing happened to me, minus the sideskirts but at 3:30 AM. And yea, it was pretty fun maneuvering my gargantuan box to get to the jack and spare tire. Funny thing is, after i got the tire fixed, i could never get all that stuff to fit in the spare area evenly so now my box is on a slant!

on the jack, you'll see a two marks you hafta line up in order for it to fit back into the spare tire well..

with a flat on the SVT, the stock jack is the only thing that fits. I believe it -might- fit with slammed GC's, depends on if you have low side skirts. We had to drive RichieRich's cougar onto blocks to jack it up, with the stock jack.

That's cheating because the SVT 'tours have pop-out sections in the sideskirt to put the stock jack under it. ;)

I never take those out, cause the more you mess with them the greater chance they have of falling out and leaving me with gaping holes in my sides lol
