Our team is doing its first mid race rear tire change and we haven't had much luck finding jack options other then the pro eagle Jack's we all have. Anybody know the price of the truck air ones? Anybody know someone who makes a big / wide jack that will add stability when jacking the rear up? thanks in advance!

We used to use a long reach floor jack for the Class 10 car. We’d go right under the trans support tube. We’d have to change tires a couple of times when we raced the 1000. Worked great. Slow but plenty stable. Plenty of options out there.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking for fast and stable, was thinking about adding support bars top and bottom to the eagle Jack's but figured there has got to be a better setup. Plan on going to skid plate below transmission like you did but not sure if they make a jack with a wider footprint, like 12 in.?

Why not just have a 12" wide base plate made similar to this one.
