    Great idea. I can't even lift my 33's. Not sure I can switch to 35's. no way I will be able to mount them!

    The first time I picked up my 37s, mounted on a heavy beadlock wheel, I though to myself how do normal people pick these up out on the trail? The tire and wheel is heavy and awkward to handle and I am a huge man that has powerlifter for decades.

    I can’t lift my 35’s on Hutchinson beadlocks. They are 120 lbs all in. I would be screwed if I was by myself. I had to Mickey Mouse some crazy McGuyver contraption just to get my spare on and off.

    This thing would be great to rotate the tires. I will just not rotate the spare.

    I had to lift 5 mounted 40x13.50r17s onto the back of my pick-up. Let me tell you, that was not much fun lol.
