it won't damage anything, at work we used to pack the exhaust with as much snow as we could, crank the car and it fires out. we also used to put a hose in the tailpipe and fill the exhaust with as much water as possible, you'd be amazed how much water they can take, with exhaust pipes that stick straight out start the car with the throttle wide open it will spray water 30-40 feet easy

I just can't imagine that finding a place to store that thing is going to be easy in anything less than an SUV. And in all honesty, let's be serious... If a person can't be bothered to use a scissors jack, what are the odds they're going to change the damn tire in the first place? Or for that matter, that they've bothered to check the air pressure in the spare at any time during the last five years? I'll bet that >75% of Americans (men & women) consider their cell phone to be the primary flat-tire-changing tool.

Its great assuming theres no exahust leaks anywhere. Why not just use a jack? I guess im not seeing the advantage
