Ever heard of fluctuating water levels? I know its one of those big book words, but it means the water levels go up and down.
I've never ran into a ramp that ended that shallow. They should end at about 4ft deep of water at lowtide.

Our lakes fluctuate greatly. There is no way to tell if one year they are going to be 2 feet down, or 6 or 5 etc. All depends on the winter snow pack.

I always have my truck underwater when launching my jetski cause i launch it alone and it weighs a little too much to not park deeply.

What year is that 650? And how the hell have you not broken the stock handle pole yet?

It's a 92. It's my old ski and I've never heard of people breaking 650sx handlepoles. I guess I didn't ride hardcore enough on that one.

Anyways, i have a 94 SN Superjet now which in a week will have a 927cc Group K 66E in it. I have an aftermarket aluminum handlepole on it for sure.

yea budd. Those are called "tides". Tides are the rising and falling of sea level caused by the gravitational forces of the sun and the moon, do you know what those are? Don't quit your day job anytime soon.

I hate how the Taco Prerunners have TRD badges that look JUST like the 4x4 TRD badges. There is no way to tell if it is 4x4 or not. With the Ranger EDGE you can just peep at the tailgate.

Im pretty sure taco prerunners are never gonna be 4x4 so you wouldn't have to worry about that

most of those 2wd's have a 'prerunner' badge on the tailgate. But yeah ive always thought it was weird that the TRD package includes 2wd trucks.
