Yeah, but you'll be towing, so it won't be THAT bad! It's 6 hrs. one way for me, lol!

Man the environment out there looks great. I wish we had more trees like that and less dust here in TX. Looks cool too, what was it 75*?

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

nate, I need a write-up on how you set up that winch to reduce your center of gravity. I noticed some rigs setup with that at the last crawl competition that I went to

Yeah that's about 7500 elevation. Always decently cool.

I knocked out a little to do list today on my rig, and then headed to a local shop for a get together. Matson from Metalcloak came by with his CTI trailer. Pretty cool to flex out both axles at the same time and check things out. Mine scored a 760.... I don't know if that's good, bad, or terrible but I know I'm getting all you can get out of 10" shocks so it's all good!

Over all a darn good day of Jeep related shenanigans.

That's awesome!

The scoring is different on each ramp pretty much depending on the angle... I scored a 916 when I did one and I'm pretty sure u have more flex than I do.

Well this is a little different than your typical RTI ramp... this is lifting one front and one rear at the same time..... so the scores don't directly correlate. At any rate... it's just fun to flex them out in a controlled environment.
