    Whats you approach, and departure angle?

    How often do you need/want a better approach/departure angle?

    I'm not sure of my angles (number wise). My approach I never have too many issues with, departure gets me sometimes though. I plan on making my reciever hitch easily removable to help that though...

    My approach is 65*
    Departure is 60*
    For me my approach is more of a problem.When I try to climb a rock or ledge the front spring perches come into play. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I don't know what my numbers will work out to yet.

    I moved my front spring pearches further forward, and it hurt my aproach angle (slight design over-sight /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif)
    Well... part of my front bumper design includes a "slider" down to the the spring pearches, as a matter of fact, the front bumper piviots on the spring bolt. The angle on the sliders is about 45 deg. I hope it'll work out as planned.

    My departure angle is about 85 degrees with the winch on the back, and the front was 70 degrees without the winch.

    My approach angle is fixing to be better than 90 degrees with the winch.
