I do with my Pinnacle. Just enough to take most of the weight off the axle, get a jack under the frame for safety, and use another jack to raise the tire off the ground. But this is for greasing and bearing maintenance. It's not recommended, but personally I'd have no problems changing a tire with the leveling system, but that's my choice.
Side note- by using the EZ lube axle grease fittings, even if done as instructed, it's likely grease will be pushed out past the rear seal lip and into your brakes. Bought a used 5er, one drum was greased. I EZ lubed my Pinnacle first time last fall before a trip, and this summer during a brake / bearing check / repack I discovered I greased one of 4 drums. I'll never use it again, I will always hand pack them.
