Flex Testing

To kick off this project, we wanted to do a little flex testing with a typical Jeep TJ. Our donor rig came from our friends at Rubicon Express. The good folks at Extreme Gear Off Road in Rancho Cordova, California, helped us by allowing us the use of their shop and forklift, and a technician for a day. As you can see here, our donor Jeep did not exactly flex-out like a rock star, but the 3.5-inch Rubicon Express short-arm suspension did enable us to pinpoint where the 35-inch Goodyears touched the underside of the OE sheetmetal.
