JK car crusher

went to a car show today with the local off road club to benefit juvenile diabetes
they had the typical 'sell whacks at a junk car with a sledge hammer' fund raising gig going.
But then they let us crush them!
old 80s nova and a caravan had a BAD bay!
Also played on the RTI ramp too.
There was only one other JK there.
Pics kinda suck because of course I forgot my camera and used my cell, but hopefully the other JK'er will email me his pics soon and I'll post them up.

Looks like a fun time...and seems like your JK has some good articulation. Add that mad- flexing YJ your buddy has there... plus it was supporting a good cause...Too cool.

* Pretty good pics for a cell phone camera!

thanks guys, it was a load of fun!
admit it, we've all wanted to try getting a wheel or 2 up onto a hood or trunk of a car
Well it's as much fun as you think it would be!

hope nobody leaves a broken down car on the side of the road close to the house now


As far as the ramp goes, that's a 23 degree ramp and my back was about 35" high and the front was about 34". Figure airing down might have added an inch and a half, so it's pretty good flex for a home brewed mutant lift
near as I can tell using the online calculators, RTI would have been about 890 for a 20 deg ramp
aired down would have made for ~930

I hope we made a few bucks for the cause
local news was there filming so at least we got some publicity for the event and the cause

last pics from the show, I promise
these just got sent to me and they're prob the best ones yet
I hate having to rely on other people for pics cuz I was dumb and forgot the camera
