    Ok so i know it isnt much flex but it did earn me free t-shirt from the indianapolis 4wpw store for most flex at their openhouse today. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Didnt realy get a score they were just going off distance traveled up the ramp.
    [​IMG] Had to show the jeeps and the sami and the f-350 how to get flexy with it. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Looks like a 30 degree ramp. If I had to guess you had the trie about 30 inches off the pavement. Judging from the hight of the tires. That's actually respectable amount of flex.

    COOL wish we had a 4WPW around here
    But thats really dumb they would measure flex by who goes the farthest up the ramp because you could put a truck on 44's not flex hardley any and go a long way up then take a truck on 31's flex it nasty and not go as far. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This was my first time on a ramp.I was surprised that the front flexed very little on the ramp because on the trail my front end flexes fairly well.I would still like a little bit softer spring up front though /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Yeah i had everything hooked up too, i think it would have been a lot more flexy if the sway bar was disconnected, but it was a spur of the moment thing for me to even try the ramp. I would love to try it with everything unhooked and see what i could do. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
