Tweaked Frame....

Well i finaly had a chance to look at the carnage from the Double Black Diamond warp speed Ninja Ride at the UTV Mayhem premier.... come to find out i pushed in the frame on the drivers side. So it all looks like DS spindle and gussets, tierod end, and frame repair/gusseting is due....

Mopar did you hit something? Get some pics so we can wee what it looks like. I cant believe you bent your frame. You are running mid travel with Wer's and no spacers right?

Talk to Ryan. He does that all the time. I swear, he breaks it every time out. Last trip not only did he break the Rhino, but his wrist too.

this is normal for almost anyone who has stuffed the front end kina hard. alot of ppl have a crease in the same spot but don't know it. take it to any shop w frame experience and it should be a relatively easy repair.

Could it be from the spacer? Or did you hit something Mopar? I didnt think you stuffed it that bad?
