My truck has the 6" lift and I noticed that the stock jack does not
have the height to lift the truck. Some things I'm thinking of
doing is to bring wood blocks for added lift or get an onboard
air compressor and bring tire plugs :) So, what do you guys do?

I would hate to have to drag my 150lb long frame farm jack all the way back to where ever my truck is:eek: . I think the wheels would wear down.

I carry a large wood block and a compressor. I'm wearing 37's on 17 inch rims. I have beadlocks, so I can remove the tire and use a patch.

I always have a handyman jack and blocks in my truck. A small bottle jack or small floor jack is good too.

You can lift the entire rear by the hitch if you go high enough.. Tippy though. In front you can use the tow hook maybe...
