Jack it up. Install bar. Tighten. Recrib jack for higher lift. Repeat tightening of strut. DO NOT lift with the strut much. Let the jack so the work.

Always crib the tire or control arm before letting jack down in case strut it defective when weight is put on it.

It basically is just a L9 grade piece of all thread.

For those of us that live in the middle of nowhere and have to order everything...What diameter all thread?

I need this, I don't have a wrecker to get me home if I run out of spare tires...

major bend or just a bit of an angle? I don't have one at all and around here going anywhere is 50 mile one way trip as cold as it is right now I have no desire to road side change a tire if I could avoid it. Sure would like to get one of these, or a reasonable homemade one. Thanks for the size estimate.

You can use a chain just as easy. Just gotta get it jacked up high enough. You may look at some weld on or bolt on grab hooks for the frame or underside of the bed
