Re: -CO chapter M&G JEEP SHOW-April 23rd

I'll never go longarms again until i have a rear suspension that can keep up. Whats the point of a super flexy front suspension when you still have leafsprings in the rear?

Re: -CO chapter M&G JEEP SHOW-April 23rd

I know, but thats on a ramp. Look at the pics of you backing onto the ramp. Notice how your front suspension is super flexed out and the rear axle is still almost flat with the Jeep? With the leafsprings in the rear and flexy longarms in the front your rear suspension doesn't ever really do any of the work, only your front suspension does. This can cause some seriious issues when you're off camber and going down hill. I'm not saying it doesn't work, I'm just saying I don't like it. I want my suspension to work as evenly as possible between the front and rear.

I admittedly have an issue with keep the tires on the ground, maybe its because I never used condoms and aren't experienced in the rubber dept?

Re: -CO chapter M&G JEEP SHOW-April 23rd

I want to personally thank KRONIK for putting this M&G together. Other than being a bit nippy and half way to New Mexico, it was great. It was good to see a bunch of friends again and meet some of the Colorado Springs crowd that I have never had the chance to meet before.

You guys got rid of the ramp before I was able to try the Pacifica on it.
