    Let's DEFINE cribbing. I don't(and won't)carry enough lumber on my rescue pumper to CRIB THIS truck. Struts.....YES. When I talk cribbing,I'm talking LUMBER. And this is NOT a practical application for cribbing. In MANY ways. A limited amount can be used but a rear crib would NOT be my way of choice. Easiest way to stabilize this one is with struts. T.C.

    You WON'T be inserting Step chocks on the C's on THIS one UNLESS you wanna do some digging. You MIGHT be able to get a couple wedges in the back.This rig is in dirt about 3 or so inches,cabwide. Two struts to the rear and a few blocks on the front will do the job nicely. Too bad there weren't a few closeups and a couple reference shots. T.C.

    Well when the Skill saw falls out of the tool box or the whole box falls and clocks some one then your Insurance company looks at Photos like this you WILL be rewriting your sogs or be looking for a new Carrier.
    Was the Truck Stabile? Probably but I'm not a structural Engineer
    Was there Spinal Injury? Probably not lets grab our portable X-ray
    Dose the pictures tell the whole story? Of course Not
    Would a Trial lawyer tear the IC apart? Defiantly
    Stay Safe All

    wow, the tool box is already open judging by the pictures, I am sure that Texas like north Fla & south Ga departments have LOTS of these vehicles and fair experince with them. We do not have near enough cribbing to stack the 4 corners, I would not hesitate to work in that enviroment, been there lots of times. we are a fair ways from the Hospital, The longer you play around building a lego fort the more you cut into the Golden Hour. Now I am not talking smash and grab, but use reasonable caution, treat patient as best and as quickly as possible, put them in the meat wagon and send them on their way. then when its all over see how many fireman would it take pulling on the tailgate to move the truck!

    I already KNOW the answer. A LOT, or a winch wire,whichever you prefer. I'm STILL waiting for the naysayers to try it on the training ground.Oh,and use the sand/grass NOT asphalt when you try it. T.C.
