once one of the tires comes up off the ground is when you stop. thats how you score your truck on an rti ramp. and ya if i had longer shocks i could have maybe gone another few inches higher, but like you said i didnt want to flip it lol

careful about that, flexing like that shouldnt hurt it, but if you wheel like that without limiting straps, you could end up breaking a shock, or at least a bolt, or worst yet bending the shock hoop, seen it happen waaaaaay too many times.

true but if you have to romp on it, you might bounce, also wheel droop coming off a drop off at an angle, plenty of circumstances. that would just suck to do, at least its a break that you could limp home on but damn that truck is sexy, makes me jealous, im currently on the hunt for a 44 for mine.
