Yeah, somethin's wrong with that cause my last WJ w/ 33s on it had insane flex. I was just dickin' around testin' out the flex cause I had never really done it before and next thing I hear was metal popping, look out the window, there goes my coil spring rolling down the trail. Ya think you just may not be pushin' it hard enough? I mean my 33 was completely tucked under the fender and I didn't have flares on it w/ no trimming.

EDIT: My bad, you're running 35s. Didn't catch that lol.

If you would have backed up on the same spot the front would have flexed like the rear. Pretend the fork lift in these pictures is the hill. When the lift is in the back the front flexes more, when the lift is in the front the rear flexes more.





Yes the front is still flexing alot but that's from the lift forcing the front axle to it's maximum flex. You definitely have more flex there you just have to do it in the right spot.

I think it mainly has to do with the hill you chose to flex on. Not that great of a spot.
