    Looks like the scissor jack only just lifts enough for a fairly stock OD tyre ?

    What's your thoughts on its use/ safety?​

    It's rated 1000kg (bit lite on)
    When put in the rear it tends to lift the whole side.
    Clears the wheel off the ground about 1" in that position (will go up a little more)
    was the std jack for the Brazilian kombis
    still something to be wary of (chocks, hand brake and don't get under the kombi)

    It is a neat fit in the compartment under the passenger seat

    Can't see that you would have a problem making it fit but it might restrict a few activities

    I'd rather an approved and legal jack. I don't know how they can sell them here.

    You can get an adapter for a T3, but I don't know about a T2.

    Does it easy, no sweat, no cranking and nothing over extended, the base board is for stability if working on soft ground.
