<strong>2.</strong> The first step is taking the weight off the tire so it can conform to the wheel. Sasaki used a Hi-Lift jack to lift the truck while stabilizing it with a winch cable to a tree. This keeps the truck from moving sideways, while blocks under the other tires can help keep it from sliding. He also dug out the snow underneath the tire rather than jacking the truck up higher for clearance. Lower is always better.
