Your 14" travel

My 12" travel

Might put a little more thought into that, and consider some control arms that won't be as restrictive.
I wasn't at full flex that's just the best shot I could find from Memorial Day weekend. Also I did not say anybody didn't know "their stuff," it's very irritating when one asks what you are running, I replied. Immediately response "BS." I don't know what to tell him or you or whomever. I have seem some pretty crazy stock arm flex. I am getting different arms, but in this pic the arms are stock. That is all. No offense intended.

Here's my 6-pack shocks, I have to run 4" bump stops to keep my tires out of the fenders.

They may flex, but it won't be long before the bracketry is ripped from the frame. It's inevitable.

Inevitable yes, impossible no. Which is my point. People shouldn't call BS before looking at the facts. That is all

No one ever said it wasn't impossible to flex with stock arms. The only thing I said was its impossible to get 14" travel shocks bolt in without major modifications unless you're using a 6pak - which we've established still holds true.

David_M, how much shock travel are you getting with that thing, looks like 14" or so from the pictures. Just kidding, its a joke, Jeep continues to look good.

I don't think I like you very much. Lots of great wheeling pictures put up here all the time in your sexy Jeep! It's just too much to handle

Yeah, I was lucky to get that color in a 2012, there wasnt many of them in AZ. I always have fun offroading, even if I break something or someone else does, I am still having fun. Here is a link to all the pictures from that day

I just might have to some day. Moab is already a 2000 km drive south for me so I'd really have to take some time off to get down there!!
