On Spring Creek I sliced a side wall while going up the snowy shelf road. I heard the air coming out. So I continued to the next switchback and stopped on fairly level ground. This time I successfully jacked off the front corner of my bumper to change the tire. A bottle jack and wood block wouldn't have raised it high enough on that road.

It was a little precarious. I wonder what I could have done differently. I have a slider attachment now for the high lift so I guess that would be a better option today.

I will say after removing fence posts with my same jack and a choker chain on two of my houses over the years. I find working the jack very easy and safe now. But, using on a rig requires additional respect.
