Easy tire change

Going down interstate and heard a bump. Ask my wife, did you hear that? she said yes and then I noticed the TPS light on the dash. I said I think we are going to have a flat. The interstate we were on is I-55 over swamp and past an off ramp without another for seven miles. I decided to pull over by an on ramp and then backed down and went under the raised interstate for the shade. Got out and left rear was dropping fast. The jack was easy to get to and lifted the jeep with plenty lift to spare and actually was a breeze. And my wife helped so it was a breeze. So those of you wondering if the TPS is worth it ? Yes. Another 1/2 mile I would be changing a flat on the interstate with massive steel flying by at 75 mph. The jack worked great with plenty of lift with no real effort. The stock tools were easy to use. But now I have a compressor and tire plugs Only drawback was the TPS did not go off because I had the flat up on the rear and my wife was freaking out about the low tire alert. Couldn't make her understand the sensor was on the flat and not on the road skins. Started thinking swamp ,tire iron, alligators, under the interstate,ect.
