    If you have ever seen the park pin in a auto you wouldn't want to tust it to hold your truck by itself.

    Well..... as you know all automatics do this, a 4x4 will do it a little more, a worn 4x4 will do it even more than that, and then add in 35" tires, and that same little bit now as been increased even more. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Know whatta mean? 1/2" of roll at the hub equals like 3" at the ground. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    Use your parking brake! I have a good used parking brake lever for sale if anyone needs one.

    Just for fun; stand on your back tire w/ the truck in park, grab the bed rail and push fore & aft on the tire w/ your feet. You might be supprised how much it moves-then again you might not, sounds like you've BTDT.
