    Hey guys I'm putting the BOSS 4x4 lift on my truck today. I'm trying to replace the shackles when I noticed that my spare tire tool is missing! I've never used it and the dealership wants to screw me out of $150 for one. My truck is stuck in the air right now. Anyone live by Cypress or Spring that i can borrow the tool from??

    Might be a dumb question, but are you sure it's missing? Did you check behind the rear passenger seat?

    I’m pretty sure if you go under your truck you can shove anything flat in there and turn it.

    Sorry guys here the pics. Also to answer the earlier question, I looked everywhere in the truck. The rubber tie down that secures the kit was loose and just dangling there.

    I know that the truck skipped leg day but the 35s are coming this week.

    What size lift is that? What tire size are on there now? I've got some shims and Coachbuilder +3 shackles to install sitting at home. I'm currently on the stock tires and wondering if that's how mine will look if I installed the shims/shackles now and wait for new tires. I should be able to get another 10-15K on the stock tires, so don't want to replace them just yet, but am looking to do 295/70/18's when the time comes.

    Thanks. Mine should sit about the same then until I get new tires (Pro Suspension + shims = 3" in front and +3 shackles are about +1.75" higher in the rear). Maybe I'll just wait to install the shims/shackles until I get new tires and do it all at once. Thanks for the quick response.
