Flexing...

What is your opinion, do any of you guys think its bad....

Today my friend and I were at my friends property where they are building there new house and I maxed out my flex in a ditch, well one tire was off the ground......

But I just dont want to mess anything up, what do I need to check? I went real slow and all, I just dont want to break anything..

Let me know guys, kind of paranoid since its my first vehicle...

Its a 03 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, ive posted pics im sure you guys have seen them.

Sorry for being a newbie haha!

Jeeps are made to flex. I'm sure everything is ok. Just don't do it again or you will become addicted and 3.5" later you will wonder what happened and why you never thought of doing this earlier.

I 3 wheel all the time when I go urban off roading, the gas station by where I jump on this trail in my neighborhood has a 2 foot deep and wide ditch you have to go through and its impossible to keep all four on the ground because you can't squeeze through the gate at the right angle.

Lucky you

My first car was an 88 Nissan Maxima

Just as long as you don't smash anything against rocks and crap everything is gonna be fine. Dirt/mud can't hurt you. Mearly flexing won't mess you up at all.

My name is mud.

Jeeps love to flex (warning huge pics):
Flex the left leg
Flex the right leg

Like you I was a bit worried after I did this...kept waiting for something to fall off.

Yes. Removing/disconnecting sway bars helps give you additional flex.
