I love the motivational message....."Remember, you live only once. Never...never hesitate to do something you really want to"

Unless what you want to do is stupid. I mean respect to him for having fun with his TRX the way he wants.

I really need to look into the battery mounting though...That is concerning
Someone's going to have to come out with an aftermarket battery tray that's metal or something. Streetspeed717 had his fall through jumping as well.

Yeah if you see any of the press / FCA sanctioned “jumps” they’re far smaller than the nonsense some of these folks are attempting.

Yep, I agree the truck isn’t meant to jump 4 ft or more, I think I remember they said no more than 2ft, and that still might be pushing it....

Looking at the video, pausing it at his highest level off the jump and using his tire as a ref of 35" he must of been 9 to 12 ft from the ground.....

I just laugh when people say “I don’t know why Ram did this” or “why Ram did that” “they should’ve did this so it won’t break” etc.

Can you jump the truck? The answer is yes, but the damn truck is NOT meant to jump off the damn Empire State Building. Some of these jumps are ridiculous.

I know some are gonna say that this particular jump is “simple” but there is much more to consider and take into account besides finding a pile of packed dirt when jumping a vehicle.

Why do people always fail to calculate landing angle? You can't just jump into the air at that angle and land on flat ground. A jump of that height would need an elevated landing ramp and even then he gave it too much ass. Oh well, not my truck lol.

LOL what an idiot! Saw a few trucks do that at a Raptor run. Frame buckled the same way. Poor guy has no idea that the truck is really screwed up. I imagine the frame buckled in a crumple zone just like they did on the Raptors. Going to have to be cut then reinforcement added. There is no fix for stupid!!

If the bed flexed enough there will be paint damage on the back of the cab. There could be other problems he is not aware of and because of the frame damage then in the future Mopar may claim it is latent damage showing up from customer abuse. These things happen, and are expensive to fix not to mention the resale value just went down the dumper. :(
