Patent Summary

The present invention aims to provide a new Vehicle Lift & Wheel Removal Combination System that is attached to the frame of a vehicle and provides for quick and easy changing of a tire. The invention contains hydraulic jacks for selectively lifting a frame away from a ground surface and also includes air lines for supplying air to an impact gun so that the lug nuts of a wheel may be removed.

Inventor's Notes

"My invention is to help people get a flat tire changed with very little work. It typically takes a male about 45 minutes and a female longer under ideal conditions. Now with my invention just push a button, remove the tire and air gun from the trunk or underside of the vehicle, pull the air line out of the inside fender well, hook-up, zap lug nuts off and put on new tire, unhook the air line, put gun and tire away, push another button and your on way in less than 10 minutes. The invention can also be used to change oil and perform other maintenance on your vehicle. Activating all four jacks with a push of a button gives you the space you need to access the motor from under the vehicle.

The invention is good for cars, trucks, buses, RV's, trailers, military vehicles, mobile homes and small aircraft."
