"Any tool is just a kit, to be modified as needed for the job at hand"
Reminds me of a felony traffic stop and arrest I did years ago, on a 1970 1 ton Dodge 4x4 pickup, lifted 3 full feet, using red wood 2x4's nailed together to form 4x4's, 3 feet long, and then placed one at each corner between the axle housing and the bottom of the leaf springs, and held at both ends with a two side by side strips of plumbers pipe hanger tape, you now, the 1/2 or so wide metal "tape" with holes punched every half inch or so, those were nailed up and over the leaf springs, and under the axle housings.
Truck was in CA, with Tennessee plates, and those 2x4's had a real weathered, splintery look to them.
Owner was not happy when I had the unsafe vehicle towed. Less happy when I put cuffs on him, I was a Fed at the time, and he had a federal warrant on him. Ruined his whole day he said.
