    Friend and I got bored. Need to find something taller, the deck on the gooseneck is only 3 feet tall.

    Looks like the rear springs are pretty equal 'flex-wise' to the fronts, that's a bonus for sure.

    Are you done trimming? Kinda close aren't ya? :whistle:

    He's not done trimming by a long shot... once that front wheel has to "turn" all hell is going to break loose!

    For a larger obstacle....throw a spare tire flat on that trailer and drive up that too. That should give you a maybe a dozen more inches of "ramp" to test on.

    Nice flex!! Are you using any bumpstops to limit that up travel?

    Yeah I have bumpstops to put on just haven't had time yet. Also looks like I need to cut more especially on the front of the front fenders and the rear of the rear fenders. Aldo need to find some inner fenders for the rear and tub it out more.

    yeah... the need for bump stops
    I also need to get my 8* front axle shims installed.
    And you can see my uber ghetto rear shackles. I wanted to make 7" shakles for rear to match the front to try to make everything equally front and back but want to run some first and make sure they work well. If they work good I'll have Kertmake some "bird" 7" rear shackles.
