    Looking for advice. We have a stacker trailer and are getting ready to hit the road, problem is the lift at its highest is about 2 inches shy of our 4Runners Gobi rack. The idea is to have the 4Runner below and some bikes up top. Wondering if I can reduce the air in the tires to gain that 2 to 3 inches and tow with straps? I have never towed with low air pressure and I am not sure if it will damage the sidewalls of our 33 inch tires. Any input would be awesome thanks!

    So everyone's silence must mean I am crazy for even thinking this?

    I did not think about that. We are heading out around 10 tomorrow morning. Thanks for responding brother.

    I would want more clearance than that since the suspension can bounce and extend allowing the roof to hit the ceiling.

    Also that would be really low air pressure to lose 3" of height. Works ok while Wheeling, but confined to one spot with extra downforce from the straps.
