Once you've got everything aligned and your angles straight, it's time to flex the Jeep just enough to check for clearances, brake line length, shock length, and so forth. This is about the only thing an RTI ramp is good for. We thought the rear shocks were going to be too long, but they worked great with our extended bumpstops-the shock's bumpstops hit at the same time the frame-mounted ones did. We got about 4 more inches of vertical travel overall than we had before with our budget boost, and the ride quality is far superior.
