Title: Original S3 Jack and tyre wrench
Post by: Fathersonduo on June 09, 2015, 06:29:42 PM
Does anyone know what kind of tyre wrench and jack the S3's had. Mine has gone and the tyre wrench is just horrible and i refuse to believe that it is the original.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated

Gedday,

one thing I've found from listening around and reading is that the SIII was less customised to mil spec than previous Series Landies so it's possible it had the normal LR jack and wheel brace. Rovers North (and possibly other parts suppliers) sell OE wheel braces and jacks. For mine I have a 3t bottle jack (to cater for when it's loaded up for a trip) and the OE wheel brace.

hope this helps

Daryl

I've just pinched a set from one of my dead Discos. With a few big wooden blocks, ropes and chains it fills the rear locker nicely.
