Flexing out a little....

I was meeting my cousin and my buddy (Dusty08) for a little late afternoon wheeling and some pictures. While waiting for them I decided to venture around and I got these flex photos. Not excellent, but I'm happy with them. The wheeling pictures will have their own thread whenever I get the pictures.

Compression.....






Clearance on full compression....and before anybody says anything the reason that it is set up that way with that knuckle and bumpstop is because on the driver side TRE and pitman arm will hit there on full compression and I wanted both sides to flex equally and not one flex more than the other.







Up Travel...






Front End Faces....





Waiting for the slackers....















Only picture that I have of us trying to get to the main road before dark (fail)....new thread whenever I get the rest. I took this one.

Very nice, your truck is about the only leaf sprung SAS Ranger that I really like. It looks almost clean enough to be stock.
I bet you could run longer shocks and get a lot more travel though in the future, if you start tweaking things more.
