Thanks Avantika.

How many steep turns? Well there were hundreds of them. You can't drive fast on such routes. Most steep turns were negotiated in 2nd or 1st gear. Maintaining average speed of 25-30 KMPH is good enough in hills I suppose.

He he. so you experienced adventure part of the journey as well.
Good to see you come out of the situation quickly.

I carry two jacks in my truck. You know when the tyre is flat the cylinder jack does not get inside properly (even with the GC of my Safari) to be fixed up as it requires a lot of vertical space. Ideal location to place jack (to my limited experience) is below the shocker joint so that with limited push ups the car goes up. If the jack is placed at other locations (like under body et.al) you need to lift the car a lot to release the shockers first and then the car's wheels actually lifts up. So, first I put the regular one to create space and then insert the cylinder jack for strength and support.
By the time the Sumo people came, I think you had already done the tricky job yourself and the right support came at right time.

Interesting to see another swift in front of your car, so you have a company now. Tyre size for swift and dzire would be the same I believe.
Hi Ladakh_Maniac,
What type of cylinder jack you use for your safari ? Can you post any picture or link. I am also looking for Bottle type jack for my Safari Storme (Spiti plan next month ) and not sure if regular jack will be useful.
Thanks in advance for your reply :)
