Couldn't you simply just use an original bumper jack?

I'm making jack stands from 4x4 & 2x4's. Also fitting all my metal jack stands with hockey pucks. There are plenty of videos on the internet that show how to make jack stands.

I don't see the utility in the combination jack/jack stand.
Did not think the question was for on the road emergency, thought it was in regards to at home on cement. Cannot see trying to change a tire on the side of the road in gravel with a standard width tire let alone very wide one. Have seen a smaller floor jack that has a safety pin once raised that locks it in raised position. Carry it in the 4 x 4, will see if I can find picture.

Accomplished the strengthening of the rear cross member today.
Pretty straight forward. No more deflection or bending of the C channel when jacking from this point.
Last two pictures are lacking in sufficient lighting for detail. Excuse my farm welds. I'll never get enough practice for o-head welds to be good at it. Put the addition of an attached, hidden, pivot down hydraulic jack on the back burner for now. Still like the concept.

To anyone else that considers this, those extra plates aren't needed for structure. They do make locating and clamping the big plate much easier for welding. They don't need to be fully welded, and only 2 would be enough.
