Great flex out of that kit! The front tire looks stuffed in there real tight.

I need to find a different spot to really flex it out and get some wheel lift going on but here's my first attempt with the Bilsteins. Can't wait to get some new tires!

I'm amazed that rear tire still tucks. Very nice!

Definitely needs more trimming for full flex turning.

lol.

Good ride and nice to meet you. I don't think I got any pics from anywhere interesting :(

I did get about 100 questions from anyone that heard the diesel running though. Always a crowd pleaser haha

Definitely a good ride.

Life Pro Tip: Find the photographer, and follow them lol. I found Joel's group and there were a couple people with camera's including my buddy in the Subaru.

Guilty of some of those questions, hah.

I'll let you know next time I'm in your neck of the woods so we can go wheel since you're pretty close to Citrus.

Okay, this is awesome, and all these trucks are frekaing SOLID!!

Now, a newb here, Can I do some Off Roading with 2WD? I got some good AT tires, and I know I probably cant do something like in that last pic from maxwell_hau5_caffy
but, I mean come on, some rocky trails, or dirt roads with some bumps?

Any help is appreciated!

For those who forget their past, are condemned to repeat it.

Of course you can. Just get out there and do it! The section pictured in Maxwell's pics was run in a 2wd... Just had to hit it with some speed.

Also - bring a friend or a winch. Just in case ;)
