i've always wondered that too... i've seen pics of those "streetable" monster trucks that have over 12 inches of lift and no steps, or anything ... how does one get into a highly lifted???

I'm 6'1" and I still have to hop into my truck, lol. It's no where near 5' of lift but it's tall enough for me.

most "walk" up the tire. I have even heard of a few that would climb the tire in the back climb in the bed then climb in the door.

but really, you look at a truck on 50+" tires, and you can fit another tire between the tire and the fender...

There are a TON of people out here with monster trucks, I really never payed attention to how they got in or out. Maybe one climbs on the others back then the other one lifts him up...

my friends Ram 2500 on 39s is a pain. Dunno how they get in those big SOBs. To get in his we open the door, grab the armrest on the door, grab the door sill and jump. hopefully we land in the seat.

A guy I work with has either a F250 or F350, on 44's now, and what has to be 20" of lift on top of that (over exageration, but its freaking huge). He's 5'10"ish. All he does is climb the front tire to get in. The bottom of the cab is damn near at his shoulders. I'll have to get some pics some time. Its like watching monkey climb a tree watching him get in.

I'm no where near that, but I jump a good bit & land on my butt. To get out, I just fall.

I dont think you'd have to worry about the truck or anything in it getting stolen. I parked next to a f350 one time at school, and it was tall, specially when parked next to mine. The front bumper on his was right around the height of the top of my bed.
