    This requires a story.... This picture doesn't speak very many words other then the obvious - so spill it. (But don't tip it over ;) )

    removed 14bff... even with no engine, trans, hood, fr.susp, fr. doors, and basically centered on the lift it still tipped...
    no body/thing was injured, cept my pride...
    my lift sucks it used to be air over hydraulic, but its not so much any more so it sticks on occasion usually when i dont want it to...
    i had it up just enough to leave the axle on the ground;in order to take the load off the spring and knocked out the last rivets from the spring hangers
    then i went to move the axle back and the lift had stuck a little, there was enough pressure to raise the lift with out any input, and once the front touched and took off some weight it kept going up till it was like 4-5' off the ground...
    not the best thing you want to happen but atleast it was the truck thats getting scrapped.... i'll be more careful next time :doah:
    really need to get a better lift or at least arms for my other lift
