    Headed to Alaska and do not want to trust my fortune entirely to run flats. Gonna get a spare and jack. My dealership does not list a jack for the 2019 since it uses run flats. Found a used jack on eBay part number 71121501930 for a 02 to 08 Minicooper. Anyone know if they changed the jack of if an older jack for a R 50, 52, 53 will fit a new 2019 F57 Cooper S convertible?

    I'd buy a nice little 1.5 ton floor jack at Harbor freight. Also carry a piece of 3/4 inch plywood to put under the jack if you have to use it in the mud. No jack is good if it sinks into the mud & falls over. Those OEM jacks suck on pavement, on unpaved stuff they'd be more than awful.

    Wow have a great trip. :Thumbsup:

    Good advice on the use of a small floor jack.

    Thanks Chad good information.
    @Sunshine - Chad owns Detroit Tuned and is a great shop and parts supplier. Good luck on your trip.

    NOTE - I moved this thread to the 3rd Generation forum. It was in the Motoring Alliance How To originally. :D
