    had the K5 up on 2 wheels tonight. Taking a gravel hairpin at 25-30 mph was too much. I thought I was getting a little too much body roll, so I steered out of it and heard the "whump" as the right side hit the ground.
    I'm going to search for the old ride height post we had going so I can see where I'm at comparatively now. It's still 15" from the top of the axle tube to where the bumpstop would mount up, but it sure feels tall. Maybe the 42's have something to do with it........

    A little scary huh. I did that a few years ago in my Dads J**P. I didn't like it much. Stephen, Steve turned off the images. So your picture won't come up. It is a bandwidth thing.......Dan

    Yeah, I have to load a new pic.
    My 5 year old thought it was fun, he wanted to do it again. Really it wasn't that bad till I figured that moving the wheel the wrong direction or gassing it right there would have turtled us. But all was tied down and strapped in, so it would just dent it. Still would suck.

    Dam, I worry when I get one wheel in the air, let alone two.
    All came out ok though so it might just make you want to do it again.
