HAHA! Under $20? Well you can go get yourself almost half a tank of gas, or an oil change with the cheapest oil you can find, or a set of copper spark plugs, could hack off the muffler and buy a piece of pipe to replace it(I would say get a cherry bomb but those are way over your limit at $25-30). But seriously, $20? How old are you? This your first car?? And leave the stock t-stat.

almost a half tank of gas for 20 bucks haha we get like 1/4 of a tank with 20 bucks. im 13 and reason why im only saying 20 bucks is because im mostly saving up for my 87 iroc camaro i just wanted to give the durango a lil boost and no the camaro's my first car.

Only thing you will get for free is weight reduction. How far you want to go with that is up to you, there is alot of corners you can cut there!

That thing is junk, but it comes in handy if you dont have a real jack. BTW its not complicated to use, one side turns like a screw and it raises or lowers it depending on which way you turn it.

The scissor jack works fine for a couple emergency uses. I locked mine up! Took it to the trash can, ended up twisting the turn handle like a piece of clay! Good thing I had 2-3 other jacks to use at the time when needed.

I always use like a 15/16ths socket on the jack and use my impact to raise it up, its fast, lol.
