How Many Jeeps Does It Take To Change A Tire On A FJ40?
By Rick Cassani


During the 1st Annual Fort Hood Labor Day Run I had the opportunity to share the trails with Scott Havis and Eric Hekkert. On the way out Scott was unfortunate enough to get a flat on one of the 35's on his FJ40. Rather than break out the Hi-Lift, Scott motioned for Erik to bring his Wrangler around perpendicular to the Toyota.

Scott tied a line to his roll bar and then to Erik's front bumper. He motioned for Erik to back up and as the Jeep creeped slowly backwards, the FJ40 began to lift on one side. Once the FJ40 was high enough, Erik sat on the break and Scott changed the tire.
