I was taking my 86 in to get the wiring harness installed and had my driver side back tire shred its tread. Normally I would change out the tire with one of my ready spares......but I didn`t have either of them LOL. Luckily the tire was still holding air so I decided to keep going. After I unloaded the truck at the shop I put my jack under the leaf spring for the tire and jacked it up. Then I ran one of my towing straps from the passenger side fender to the driver side, underneath the hub and then back to the other side fender. Ratched it as tight as I could and then let the jack down, the strap held up the axle perfectly so I was able to get it home on a smooth ride.
