      I've seen the first, but not the second one. WTF? Ouch! It also appears his bed wasn't even bolted down because it flew up before he even hit.

      I have a feeling that's due to that not being their first attempt.

      Who needs their brain attached to their spinal cord? Obviously not these guys. I rednecks and the stupid things they do. Makes life so much more interesting

      Sad part is that you know you're trashing your truck so why even do it? I guess rednecks love to break things.

      FYI, the first one is not actually in a desert, but on sand dunes at Silver Lake on the lush green lakeshore of Lake Michigan.

      I like all of the loose projectiles in the un-bolted bed of the second video. Ugh.

      Wonder if the damage is covered under his B2B warranty.

      Did the guy in the 2nd vid actually think he was going to clear that gap?

      I spy a Volvo 740 in background of that 2nd vid.

      None of these are in the desert. This would be considered a Thread Title Fail.

      IIRC, there was a problem with how he built the suspension. Even admits to it. Either he didn't tighten something down or stacked some washers...

      Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.

      Rozap from a while ago but still pretty funny.

      PSA: ANYTIME you're thinking of trying something and your friends immediately point a video camera at you.......that means you shouldn't be doing it.

      Why would you jump something that you know has a questionable build?

      "Yeah, I found this tire and it has bubbles on the side wall. Lets mount it and drive 100 mph!"
