Someone told me that it was possible to lift the body on a truck using lawn mower parts. I told him he was insane, but he swears that his Toyota he used to have was lifted like that. Any idea how he did that?
It is possible to lift you truck w/ oddball products, but it's not the brightest maneuver you could make. like the other man said, you can do it using hockey pucks, but this method is incredibly stupid, wherein the first good hit your suspension takes, the pucks go flyin, and you are in a world of crap... your best bet is to go ahead and do it right.

Sure he could have done that, I could build a lift out of 2x4s and peanut buttter if I really wanted to. I myself have fabricated many things on my truck, and have allot of respect for somebody who can do their own work. But ya gotta draw the line somewhere! I don't know what's funnier; that he lifted his toy with lawnmover parts or that he admitted it to you.
P.S. On another humorous note, I actually have a part on my truck made from an old lawnmower. I needed to make a bracket for my ignition coil so I cut down an old ear from my bin of lawn mower parts, ground it to shape, painted it, and presto...custom coil mount. Maybe we should take a poll on how many of us have lawn mower parts on our rigs
If your knuckles ain't bleeding you did something wrong.

This is the most ridiculous forum I've ever been in, EVER! I haven't stopped laughing! But seriously guys, I think we all know that the best lifts are made using old hardcover books that you can't get rid of. A few dictionaries do very nicely to add 3 inches!

Use AOL preview CDs. I wonder if we could ever force AOL out of the country?
Yeah, we get enough of them in the mail, plus they give them away at circuit city. I could have a 16" body lift by now!! We probably won't have to force AOL out. They will probably just lay off the entire american work force and move the company to a country where they can pay the workers in lima beans. I can imagine it know, "MOL, Mexico On Line." Such a sad, sad world.
People who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

Hey, don't be wastin' all those CD's on body lifts-they make great bird chasers for the garden! Just tie them on a string and hang 'em, the wind catches them and spins 'em reflecting the light, presto! The birds are gone!! Or blinded!!
