Some Flexing

I was bored today so I thought I'd hit up a rock pile I found at a local pier.

I don't understand why anyone would intentionally want to put extra stress on their suspension system and frame......aren't you concerned about bending up your frame or damaging your suspension ?????

wow i can tell you have never owned a 4x4 thats left pavement, and never been wheeling..

a Ranger isnt a Honda Civic. its not junk unibody that parking half on a curb and the doors wont open. its a TRUCK... its built with a full frame to be abused not spend its life in walmart parking lot or asphalted haven..

your not gonna hurt the suspension, nor the frame

I can't see where it would help the frame. I certainly wouldn't want to buy a used vehicle that has been thru that kind of abuse.

Man are you wrong, my first vehicle was a 4 wheel drive *****'s Jeep, that I had outfitted with a snow plow, I used to do plenty of off roading with that. I also had a CJ5 Jeep with a plow, so yes I have plenty of experience with off roading and heavily using vehicles. I also know you can damage your vehicle very easily by abusing it. The point of off roading is to explore places, not to purposely abuse your truck. But what they hey, it's your truck not mine, and if you break something, it'll be your bill.

Yep, I agree. Snow plowing it extremely hard on a truck, it's good if you have your own arc welder hahahaha...

I just wouldn't do that to my truck. I don't like the idea of flexing just to show off.

Wow seriously man, if you don't want to off road your truck then don't. It is that easy, don't complain about other people doing it. The point isn't to purposly break the truck it is to have fun. You have to pay to play and most people that "abuse" their trucks understand that. If you think the OP is abusing his truck you should see where I put mine. lol
