I've seen it too many times on the news... Man crushed while working on car...film at 11... I live with 3 women, I always use stands!

----------

If I was a guessing man I would say the chain is to prevent axle wrap, kinda like home made traction bars...lol

It's when the front of the leaf spring bends upward and the rear of the spring bends downward. It rotates the pinion angle=bad It's usually not a problem on Rangers. High performance cars or built 4wds with big tires and low gears deal with it.

The chains was where he tethered his dog until he forgot about him one day. He ended up backing over him, and the chain got tangled up in the frame.

the chain is indeed my own design of a anti axle wrap devise. ive seen the posts and links for the james duff traction bar setup and it occured to me that the stress was a "pull" on the bar not a "push' therefore chain would work. ive made a few changes over time with this but its worked well and is helpfull when towing my large box trailer. why spend 150 when you can accomplish the same thing for under 50. as for the blocks, they are solid concrete and are used to support a mobile home, i think they'll do for a 4,300 pound truck. winter wheels: summer wheels: truck & trailer:
