The jack is under the hood infront of the airbox, the tire tools are under the back seat.

If I'm not mistaken the Disco's come with a bottle jack. You can go to Lowe's or Advance or whatever parts store is near you and pick up another one pretty cheap that should fit back into the same spot in the truck. Just make sure it's rated to hold the weight of your truck. Don't know if it'll fit, but RockAutoParts.com has a 12 ton bottle jack for $39.79. That's close tofour timesthe weight of your average Disco.

It is cheaper to get a small floor jack from walmart that cost about $20. It will not raise your disco far enought so you will need a block of wood too, it has worked for me for about a year.

Carrying a floor jack i the back of your truck is a bad idea unless you can bolt it to the floor. If you get in a accident you are dead. Imagine that jack slamming into your skull.
They would have to do finger prints to identify you.

Spike is right about the floor jack. Carrying one in the trunk of a car, no biggy, do it all the time. Carrying one in the back of an open SUV.....like the man said, bad idea. A bottle jack with enough weight capacity to handle a Disco should also have the height to lift it without a block of wood and also be smaller. Cost wise, you're not looking at all that much more to pick up a bottle jack than to buy the small floor jack, and alot less hassle if you ever do need to use it. I will say one thing though, the OEM ones on Atlantic British seem to be way overpriced unless someone on here can justify the price. $100 seems a little steep to me.

Damn, $100 for an OEM jack? They must be giving happy endings with them!
