    I just realized that the garage is smaller than my lift LOL. I thought I could let the air out of the stock tires but I dont think I can get the rims on the truck LOL. I guess I will be strapping the florr jack to the rear diff and dragging it out with the tow rig LOL. Just thought I would share my goof up with everyone for a good laugh. I will not take the lift back off though. So I guess if it doesnt come out I may be looking to buy another to hit the trails LOL. Happy fourth everyone

    You can run the front out on the rotors.

    Happy 4th to you too! :D

    Why can't you get the rims on? I guess I'm a little confused.

    I can remember a pic of a guy who put bare rims on his truck with no tires and drove it in and out of his garage. You could get an old rusty set for free if you look, and just keep them for that.

    I pulled the valve cores on my tires and flattened them, pulled the top off, and then had myself and 5 other guys sit on the truck and bounce at the right time to get the highest part of the cab to clear the door...works like a charm :D

    If you have some ratchet straps, just compress your suspension ;)

    thanks for the ideas guys. I think I will let the air out of the tires and compress the rear end. I meant there is not enough room to get the rims on the axles. I think I can do it with the garage door closed and then compress the springs.

    I'm gonna have to spend $3000.00 more (damn) than I wanted to, just to get 9 foot doors on my steel building. It was gonna have 7'x8' wide doors and I figured I would regret that. Now they'll be 9'x10' wide so I can get the "future" car hauler in and out, and drive the '75 in and out without airing down. It has to have a 10 foot ceiling to accommodate the doors but that's more room to lift under.
