    I decided to go with the" Factory UTV" spare tire holder for about $275. I liked the clamps and simplicity of it. I'm currently not carrying a jack. For weight savings, i would like to opt for the exhaust air bag set up mega uses. Looks simple enough. But for now, I will find a rock or hill to park on. I only carry a spare on long rides out of town. I have a tire plug kit and harbor freight compressor for minor flats etc. It will usually boil down to budget, The better the jack, the more $$$$ you'll spend! ranging from $25 to $500.

    So it looks like you welded up the lifting arm so it wouldn't tilt down and dump the car? I have one of those jacks but rather than a stamped arm like you have mine seems to be a cast solid part.

    You are correct Zambo, it works great, never had to use it on my car in the field but used on others . The small in locks it in the bottom of the arm arm or trailing arm.

    Speaking of spare wheels for an X3 Max RS: I'm almost embarrassed to ask this, but I shall forge ahead! Are the front and rear wheels different? The BRP website has front and rears. If so, which one works best for a spare? I don't have a caliper that will let me measure the wheels so I can't confirm whether front and rear are the same.

    When i bought my X3 XRC, I went on an accessory buying spree which included the storage rack, matching spare tire and the screw jack (all OEM). Because the jack is secured to the spare tire by a mounting bracket, the tire/wheel/jack assembly has to be assembled before hoisting it onto the rack. It's kind of a PITA to get it down and separate the jack from the tire if you just want to lift the machine to check bearing play or fix a flat tire when not out on the trail. I purchased a drop leg screw jack from Amazon and welded a short tube on the side that fits into the OEM jack receivers that are mounted to the frame just inside the door on each side of the machine.

    It's plug-n-play, works like a champ and you don't need extra tools to make it work, unlike the Can Am jack. It's not any heavier that the OEM jack and if I'd known then what I know now, I would have fabricated my own receivers and saved myself a lot of $$$ for other accessories. The jack was $51 on Amazon and another $20 in materials would have covered all the mounting tubes/brackets -vs- $460 for the OEM jack kit.
