That is nice but maybe a regular size of that so that it isn't as blurry as last weekend was.

so0o

when travel is measured, is 24" the total the front has between the 2 sides? So I in that theory have 30" of travel in my front suspension? (before the driver bump stop when back on)

what are you talking about???!!!! His truck is awesome i personally know the guy. Its a 4x4 v8 ranger that he races!! Its got a three link and everything you can tell by the video. He pulls more travel than that too. He just has to take his limit straps off!

No that 24" is per side.

Neither, I'm happy with my truck being stock, and I have no intention of putting my truck under that much stress, I'd be concerned with permanently damaging the frame as well as the suspension. I treat my truck like the proverbial "little old lady, who only drives it to church on Sundays."

Check out the front passenger tire on this Jeep. I got the pic off a local Jeep club I'm part of. That looks like some pretty mean flex!



Not flexing, but a pic of a nice buggy with Ford badging and a nice 04'-05' grill.

For me, having my Ranger is for basic transportation and a means for survival. I don't want any unnecessary repair bills, so I take it easy on my truck, and hopefully it'll last a long, long time. I'm not interested in climbing rocks with it. That's just a good way to mess up your suspension.
