The Hardest thing about changing my own oil

the hardest thing is jacking the car up ,i have gfx kit and my floor jack does not fit in the front or sides of car!!! i had to jack up the rear end first and support with stands , then i could jack the front up.. next weekend going to buy a low profile jack!!!! (the price of the oil change is not that easy either) did the first oil change 500 mile, wanted to get the break in oil out!!!

I was going to suggest them or, the low cost version is some wood from Home Depot to work up to the height that you need.
