Default Flexing my ranger questions?

I have never flexed my ranger and this may be a dumb question but will it break anything if I flex. Im not talking little flex but there is a nice rock that My freind flexed his truck on and I want to try my ranger out. Its a stock 98 4x4. Here is a picture of the rock.

seriously? you're asking if making your suspension move will break it? driving down the road, going over a speed bump, or turning into a drive way at an angle flexes your suspension.

wow

That's what the suspension is built to do. When your rear tire comes off the ground, you know you have gone to far.

You'll be fine man. I've jumped my truck, flexed it so much the tire left the ground, loaded it to the tits with logs etc. rangers are tough bastards. You'll be fine.

Don't do it. You will stretch your gas tank making the plastic too thin and your truck will explode if you drive on a day over 90 degrees. If you survive that you will probably get herpes.

Jumped my '99 ranger all 4 off the ground once. Broke a sway bar end. It's a 4x4 with "offroad package".

Jumped my 06@60 mph all four off the ground about 6 times no damage.

You must not have planned it out if you broke something. Either that or it was rusty.

Just go have fun with your damn truck. You can't climb a rock with a Honda Civic. In fact, why don't you go find a Honda Civic to flex on instead of the rock...
