Agm Truck With Jack Extended

AGM has designed an integrated vehicle jack system that utilizes the power steering pump to pressurize two hydraulic cylinders that extend under the truck to raise it to get unstuck or for tire changes. With this setup, the driver does not need to leave his seat should a flat occur. The co-driver exits the cab, while the driver actuates the vehicle-jacking system to raise one side of the truck. With a cordless impact gun, the co-driver can remove a flattened tire and do a complete tire change in less than 120 seconds. Not quite NASCAR tire-change speeds, but probably far faster than the typical change made by any other trophy truck team.
