Dude... you shouldn't do that!!!! Flexing IS bad for the truck. The first thing to go when flexing is the bottle of blinker fliud. It cracks. The fluid will most likely corrode the flux capacitor and a big nuclear explosion will occur!!!!

And you some how think that making your frame twist, and dropping body lines by inches is good for the truck?

Please, enlighten me, how is making your body lines misallign by INCHES good for ANY stock vehicle./.. Explain that cause I am dying to know.

The cab and bed are separated for a reason. There is nothing wrong with flexing the suspension as that's what it's designed to do.

Misaligning the body lines is bad? How is that bad? Like I stated before, they are separated for a reason. So that the frame can twist a certain amount.

I think you should get rid of your truck and ride a bike. You'd be pissed if you knew how many times you "misaligned" your body lines every ****ing day.

How is it bad? does it stay that way once you go back on normal ground. No, it doesn't stay like that.
I've gotten owned enough today so i'll leave you alone lol

FMD is just butt hurt that he cant lift his truck.. like i said earlier, weld (if you even know how to) everything in your suspension together and make it solid. this will result in no flex

LOL

I could life my truck, put a 3 inbody lift, 4 inch suspension lift, 40in tires... I COULD do that. Not a problem at all.

But geuss what? I dont want to.

My truck will never see a lift till it gets lifted into the crusher at the junk yard.

not even a 3in body lift... I have no reason to. its not going to do anything for me.

Hey FMD....i can understand if you don't believe in flexing and lifting your truck, but realize that 90% of the people here do. Im not getin on to ya but just respectfully stateing the fact of. I have flexed my truck several times and i have had no issues. I have a 3" BL and 2" suspension lift with no probs. But like bung holes we all have our own opinions on different things. If you don't wanna do any of that stuff to your truck then thats cool but just don't tell us in the sense not too because of your opinions. I paid $15k for my truck and if i choose to twist the frame out from under it then its my $15k....and thank goodness for insurance!!! LMAO!!! anywho's thats just my two cents on it!!
