Re: 2013 Nissan LEAF with a Spare tire and no Trunk space lo

The Nissan Altima Jack I show in the beginning of this post fits perfectly. I don't know of any other Jack. You'll have to purchase one and test it yourself.

With that in mind does the other one?

I eyeballed the Harbor Freight jack when it arrived, and it appears to be right. I didn't actually try to jack the car with it.

That rear area was for the inductive charger on the Infiniti version of the LEAF (cancelled).
I frequently audit Hospitals that require me to go "beyond the red line" which requires gowns, masks, etc. Many have "throwaway" jumpsuits that are durable and waterproof. I have one in the trunk of all my cars for just this purpose.

and its better than sitting around waiting several hours for a tow.

any scissors jack will do just fine. just make sure you use the notches in the frame

I used the HarborFreight jack linked above to jack my 2013 S many times (between the notches) and no problems.

I haven't needed the spare yet (knock on wood!) maybe I should check it and check the pressure?

I'll have to watch this thread, and see if you still like this setup in a few months.

Do you have the specs of the tire/wheel you purchased (or a link to the original auction)? Did you verify the wheel fits/drives ok?

Anyone know the weight of the Altima spare tire, I'm thinking for shipping cost calculation :)

anyone try mounting one of these with the hitch installed? I don't care if the aero shroud does not go back on just tired of my trunk being filled with a spare tire :-)

figure keep a full size spare at each job and the donut in the car but I want it underneath.
