    great that the jack works, and you were just testing, but the next time you do that hopefully you will jack the truck up correctly block off tires, and use jackstands. Dont belive me ask my friend that had his leg broken when His jeep fell and he couldn't get out of the way intime :)

    Is that a 2-ton jack or a 3-ton? I could never do that with a 2-ton jack on my 1-ton Crew Cab.

    then theres something wrong with your jack...ive picked up the back of my dads work truck full of tools no problems...a cutaway van with a work body on it...much heavier than a crewcab.

    I tried to pick up just one corner of the front of my Crew Cab one time with a 2-ton jack, and it got the tire a couple of inches off the ground, but then the high pressure valve popped off, and it slowly dropped back to the ground; so then I had to go out and buy a 3-ton jack, and that is all I will use on my 1-ton trucks anymore, in order to have some peace of mind that my truck is being safely lifted off the ground.
