So after getting my Pro Comp Stage 1 installed on my 315/70/17s, I always wondered "will my stock jack still allow me to change a flat away on the road?"
Ummm... no. I took the stock jack out and attempted to raise my truck up. The jack topped out just before touching the frame rail. Ok, stock jack is out. :o
Next, I try my Craftsman SUV floor jack (maximum 21" lifting height)... I can raise the truck up, but not enough to get the front tire off the ground. Not to mention that my my 3-ton jack stand is as high as it will go - but slides freely under the frame rail once raised.
So I'm looking to the forum members to see what options/suggestions you have for an "acceptable" solution to my problem. If possible, I donít want to toss a floor jack it the bed. I entertained the option of a hi-lift or farm jack, but not completely sold on that solution.
Iím able to lift the rear (via the axle) without any problems, so Iím wondering if I need to use another lift point in the front Ė like maybe the Pro Comp front cross member?
