Changing Tires on BigFoot

Post by Jack » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:28 am

Having grown up in the 80’s, the BigFoot truck was something to be seen. Most of us had old farm trucks, even some bigger 4 wheel drive trucks, but nothing as amazing as Bigfoot.

Now here we are over 30 years later and I can say that I never really thought about how they got those giant tires on that truck (or any of the trucks like it.)

When I saw this video, I knew I needed to see it. Once I watched, it made total sense that they would need a way to lift it rather than just a jack.

I’m guessing that watching it run over things was far more important than knowing how they got the wheels on.

Wonder how that would be if pit crews for NASCAR had to go through this for a tire change.
