I used the included jack to teach tire changing to some boy scouts this past weekend. We changed the driver's side rear tier. The jack is your standard bottle jack that is fairly easy to use, but it has to be placed under the axle in the rear, between the transfer case and the shock absorber mount, so it requires crawling under the truck. I put the wheel chocks on the passenger side front tire, front and rear.
Recognize that I have not played with the jack. When you say "bottle jack," I tend to think of a hydraulic jack. These are usually pretty heavy, obviously these are a lighter, screw-style bottle jack that cannot leak.
I normally have been able to attach the mechanism for operating the jack to the jack and slide it under the vehicle. However, with this design of jack, probably difficult. I actually like the scissor type jacks for this reason. Usually can hook the jack with the tool and position it. I actually used the scissor jack out of my wife's Wrangler to change a lady's tire on her Camry the other day in the dark because I knew how to get it in & out in the dark, knew how to operate it, etc.
Not a big fan of a screw style bottle jack.
