Default Jumping a stock ranger :/

ok i know this is stupid but what can happen if you jump your ranger stock? bend a spindle? put it out of alignment? uncrank the t-bars?

A twenty five mile an hour front collision can bend the frame. . . . .

Go for it!

Jumping a stock Ranger = not a good idea. Personally, I'd get a dirt bike before I spent $5 trillion to make the Ranger jump-worthy.


Rangers weigh nowhere near 5K pounds, BTW....

I was going around a corner and I was doing about 40 and coming around the corner there was a huge dip and I hit it and all four wheel got airborn. It was right in front of my buddys house. First time at his house so I didn't exspect it. I checked it out last night pullled the wheels off and checked for any cracks or anything. It didn't bottom out good thing. But just makeing sure the alinment didn't go south. I am getting it checked by a machanic today. Just to make sure.

I have jumped mine. No problems besides blown stock shocks but they were almost gone anyway. It still holds an alignment fine and nothing else was damaged. I didn't get too much air though because it was stock so I didn't go too fast. Was it stupid? Yeah a bit. Would I do it again? Probably but I'd get better shocks before I try. But then again I bought my quad for jumping so I probably wouldn't do it again.

I'm sure your truck is just fine.

like Jay said, its easier and cheaper to just jump dirt bike or quads instead of trucks unless your willing to pay the money and mod your truck...but thats just my two cents

Ya I completely agree Quads or dirt bike is the way to go. like I said I didn't do it on purpose just happened. I'm pretty sure it's ok also. The alinment is just fine and my ranchos didn't blow. Just say I got lucky on this one and I will be more carefull going around turns that I can't see around. Thanks guys I really appreciated your suport.

I have got mine off the ground more than a few times, but I wouldn't call it jumping it. All very smooth dirt roads with little soft rolling kickers. I have bottomed out my suspension numerous times, so far I have been really lucky, knock on wood.

Ahh, accidentally happened not considering future funning. Darn, I was thinking front heavy, catarophic, photo op. . . Oh well maybe next time. Hope everything is ok. = )
