Default useless tire jack

Posting from the side of the highway: Why the F*** does Ford give you a tire jack that is too f***ing small to lift the truck up enough to get the tire off??!! I have the factory original OEM tires BTW. Waiting for my mom to bring me my floor jack from home....

Lift from where? The point closest to the ground is the rear axle and that's too tall. I even looked at the jacking instructions and jacked from the EXACT point they said to!

I don't know anybody who had this problem with a stock truck running stock tires. You are not using the jack in the right place?? I never had any issues with my stock trucks using a factory jack!!

pfft - I just had a flat in my F150. Try to figure out how to drop the full size spare. The male end of a two section extending rod poked into the cable mechanism that dropped the spare. The lug wrench also had a slot for a male end. Didn't work. At least male on male doesn't work for Ford.
