    For those of you who don't check out the non4x4 forums. It's happened to me. Had this pic since the mid 80's.

    Someone in the chat room one night mentioned they put the lift on their truck, then the new tires.... they proceeded to become excited and wanted to go test them out. But in his excitement he didn't take into account the extra height he added so he had to take off the tires and roll out the Blazer slowly on some jacks or something like that... I don't remember what he said, but I remember thinking that is something I would do! [​IMG]

    That in particular hasn't happened to me. But...to fit into a buddy's garage to work on my truck, I have to take the tire off the rack, then take off the spare brake/hub/spindle assembly that the tire mounts to, air down to 2-3psi, and get my big friend to stand on the rear bumper. :-)
