Re: Spare Tire Jack
I am not sure what the difference is between the two, but I can tell you from experience that the 4X2 jack is a PITA to use. After I got a flat on my '92 and had to use that thing, I went out and got a cheap little floor jack and threw it in the back for next time. The really long handle of the stock jack makes it hard to use and when you try to wined the handle, the jack wants to just flip over. You would be better off and probably money ahead to just get one of those cheap small floor jacks that come in a plastic carrying case.
