Can't get the files to load but one at a time.
I could not get it to go any further. Has a little bit of room left.

I would like for It to flex more. I need to do what Jt did to his springs and undo the tabs that hold the springs together. But I'm not going to do that anytime soon.

Looks great Fergie! Remember now, JT has FJ 60 springs...so he is going to have more flex.

The rear shot looks like the shock has about an inch of up-travel and you have a couple inches til you hit the bumpstops. If you flex them out more wouldn't you run a risk of damaging the shocks?

I'm not familiar with how that shock arrangement effects the geometry of the setup.

The best way to get it to flex out is a ditch. That is not stressed fully. Ramp type flex won't get you fully stuffed.

Find you a ditch then hit that bitch till it teeter/totters. Then get out and make your measurements for a bumpstop
