    I can't imagine what would possess someone to do that in a beater, no less a $51,000 truck.

    Right?! There is no way that stunt ends well for both the truck and its occupants. Talk about intentionally doing something with the potential to create a life-altering injury in the blink of an eye. Even if these guys weren't thinking about their own safety, most people seem to care about their wallets. Nothing worse than making payments (or defaulting) on a totaled vehicle while the insurance co. denies your claim.

    I have not driven a Raptor but that truck seems to bring out some nuttiness, a sense of invincibility. I want one but I'm afraid it will make me do something stupid too.

    They are Bad A$$ right off the showroom floor. But jumping it like a dirt bike? No.

    Don't take the chance to make a play on words wrong. ;) I love the truck and have been trying to find an angle to make that our second vehicle ( the wife 's / main family vehicle ). Just looks to be about $10k too much for us. It's a shame, considering I finally got her seriously interested in a truck this afternoon! :eek:

    The guy filming in the previous jump video was almost as stupid being that close. Here's another angle.
