    Hello,

    So I put my new procomp 7089's and duratracs on yesterday and I wanted to go hit the trail and do some flexing to see if I needed to do any additional trimming. so I drove into a small ditch on an angle just to get a good flex.. as i was doing that I hear a loud popping noise ( not saying that has anything to do with this, just thought I would mention it). on that not I sepped out of the truck to take a look. everything checked out fine and im not in need of anymore rimming. I hopped into the truck and closed the door but it wouldnt close at all. I realize that when flexing the frame will tweak a bit but my door was off by a 1/2". once on flat ground everything was normal and lined up fine. I have just never noticed that before. is this normal or should I be looking further into it?

    thanks for your help

    Pretty flexible frame with the channeled design. If everything settled back into the right places I wouldn't worry.

    Check to make sure that the clips on your bumper are not broken. My driver side one is broken. I'm thinking it was because of this but I don't really know (this was a week ago):[​IMG]
