Vehicle jacks

I have a question that I am hoping I can get an answer to...

PLEASE NOTE: the following pertains to changing a flat tire on the road only...not for working on the vehicle.

My wrenchin' days are long over so I know nothing about this, however, I see, and have heard, the jacks supplied with vehicles nowadays are garbage, even compared with the old bumper jacks we had way back when. I used to carry an old scissor-jack and a large L-head lug wrench and a large speed or spyder wrench as well. Nonetheless, that was then and my question is this; what would be a good jack for a modern vehicle, i.e. PU-truck, van, or car? I assume the wrenches are still good but the jack behooves me.

Help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Take Care and Stay Safe,
Ken aka kilogulf59
