A home built wooden ramp is easier, safer, faster...run the good tire up the ramp once the lugs on the flat are loosened.

I can't remember the last time I had to jack up the fiver to change a flat. As bad as our roads are out west, I can usually find a decent pothole to straddle and change the flat after loosening the lugs.

If it's in camp where the ground is soft, I just dig a hole in front of the bad wheel.

If I can't dig a hole or find a pothole, then I can always put down leveling blocks under my jack pads and use the six-point jacks to raise the whole thing up.
