RTI scores...

I did the RTI ramp for the first time at a local off road event Saturday, scored a 633, is that pretty average for a RE short arm kit? What are some of you guys with long arms getting?

RTI ramps are over rated.They are good for setting up your junk and to look for any binding that might be happening.As for scores I couldn't tell you what I was scoring in the different phases of my Jeep.Score also depends on what degree ramp you are using.


8" of lift with 35's on a 22° ramp.I could almost max it out.It rolled back slightly when I got out to take the pictures.(sorry for the dark night shots)




Later with 8" of lift 36" tires and rear coil overs.Same ramp but on the 30° side.I could drive over the 22° side.






Then later after some bump stop changes.Different ramp but still 30°.If I were to hit it at a slight angle I think I could have maxed it out.

I have always wondered what would happen if you drove off the end of the ramp, if yours can, I would love to see a video of you driving over the ramp.

sick rig will

30* ramp. No idea what the score was as I didn't bother measuring. Like Wil said, they're mainly just for show-off photos and checking clearances, binding, etc, at full flex.





Same ramp, other side, on a prior trip.
