Rotating tires

Well I never really thought about this before I lifted my truck but now I dont have a way to get the damn thing off the ground How do you guys with lifted trucks rotate your tires? I really dont want to have to pay to get something this simple done. I can use a fork lift but thats kinda my last resort.

My floor jacks and bottle jacks go plenty high to jack mine up by the axles

Do you just use 2 jacks on the rear then? I had always been told not to go off of the diff

If I'm jacking the whole truck up, I put a jack on each side of the front axle and one under the rear diff

Never had a problem with doing it off of the rear diff? I heard that it will bend the cover. I guess im just a little paranoid about breaking things lol
