Flexing...Whatcha got??

Im curious to see how everyone is with their flex. If you got some, post some pics on your flexing, and then tell us what you have done to your suspension.

Sure. Those picks are from a run in Dec just before closing.

Looks like there will be a rock race at UNF in may. I thinking of entering the stock class.

A major offroading magazine tested a bunch of stock trucks on rocks and reported the FX4 was the best of all the stock trucks they tested. Don't remember what year that was -- but FWIW.

i really really want to go out on the trail and test it. really have not had a chance... i know its not an excuse but hey whatever. lol

but this is prolly the best i got. parked that way all day... turned some heads that is for sure... thanks to evan for letting me use his tire

I have not gotten a chance to flex with my Alcan springs yet but it should stuff the rear better.
