A very wide man once said, "With a long enough lever, I could lift the world." It's not just how hard you push on that wrench--it's how hard you push multiplied by the length of your lever. Lengthen the lever arm, reduce the force required to get the same torque. All this to say, get a cheater bar. If you have to use your legs to turn a wrench, you're probably doing something wrong.

Im not understanding everyone being scared i did 105+- and held it there for a min or two with 4in lift plus spacers and no front sway bar other than the front drive shaft vibration it was smooth and comfortable. But i tend to like 5mph slow crawl in 4lo

You went 105 without a front sway bar?? Please PM me next time you are planning to do that, so I can have time to get to my bunker.
