    some eyecandy. Would flex more but my boss was getting paranoid and the rear wasn't twisting much withough hardly any weight on it. Front was rockin though and still planted hard. And yeas my hood was open before and not twisted open.

    Now that is an interesting way to get it flexed. Seen it done a lot of different ways, but not that way before. Looks like alot of flex to me.

    and that is mostly all front flex. Not enough weight and because of weight transfer the rear springs aren't hardly working yet

    Ya know, wives are always having them stinkin' tupperware parties and them home decor parties, we need a man party . . . I say bring your tools, your vision and we'll have on hand a Summit or Jeg's Rep with free gifts for all, discounts on group orders, barbeque and beer - now that would be a great man party . . . no tupperware required! I'd even let you all help wrench on the K5 to get it running - heck, I'd even sweep the shop floor and make it somewhat tidy :haha:

    Oh, hijack mode off.

    Sure is some wicked flex above :D

    Hmmm, I've got 20 acres, wonder if my wife would understand if we put in 10 acres of boulders, a 5 acre mud pit and a big hill for a hill climb :haha:
