LMFAO I remember that one tooooo funny lol.

That truck looked pretty much stock to me??? Wouldn't you try smaller jumps first before taking your 6000 lb truck over a 90 foot one? That's definitely BIG AIR in any body's book!
You need huge long travel nitro charged shocks....Special suspension. ... a freakin roll bar....helmet ...

well you forgot to add "not buy a ford!" lol but yeah I do agree tho all that dose help. the raptor however already has a specialized suspension, it's just not ment for jumps. its more at home in the desert running 100mph then doing jumps. biggest issue is the frame is not fully boxed.

Not as bad but this can also happen in dunes
Four people where I work lost their lives in a jump like this several years ago in the dunes near Yuma, Az....It snapped their necks! They were in a VW sand rail, the buggy jumped a ridge, went nose into the sand and flipped, end over end, twice before comming to a stop, engine running. Everybody thought they were ok until they checked on them.

Yup, problem is we get quite a few show offs who totally miss the point: go out, have fun, and come back to enjoy it again.

I prefer to get stuck at the top of the dune due to insufficient momentum rather than overshooting like that .. easier to recover and the cost/health risk is far less.

Sunglass holder broke because the stupid plastic jeep used to hold the rods in place broke... So I stuffed some paper down it and trimmed it to size and it works fine now.
