Looks good, best 90 rti ramp Ive ever seen. Definitely not portable.

looks like a good spot to change your oil from now on.

I once made $250 with my old YJ doing that....the old timers at camp called BS when I said my Jeep could drive up a tree....put my driver's front about head high on a huge maple in the front yard and watched thier jaws drop.

Some pictures for my wheeling at the badlands this past weekend.







I have a small video I need to upload yet also. Truck did great, when everywhere I pointed it, just straight worked. No issues with drive shafts either


2 things I still need to figure out, engine loads up at idle speed and I lose reverse when I am at high angles so sometimes I cant back down obsticals.


Gonna start the cage next, should be more fun after that!

Went and flexed it out on the newly built rti, thanks Andy








I think I can do better with longer shocks in the back.

definitely do better with longer rear shocks..but still did awesome:thumbup:

Ill work on making it a little wider and in a better location so the ramps easier to access, the. We will see what you stretch out at.

Still jawdroppin at how far that green machine has came since it started.

Started making my front stinger, winch guard tonight. I am happy with it so far, just not sure what I'm gonna do for a fairlead mount, I don't like that part of it. Might just box it in with tube to guide the cable onto the drum and go without the rollers, ill just smash em up anyway lol.
