    remember that Lee Majors series with the lifted truck...it showed it jumping at the beginning. I can't remember the name of it. I wonder what kinda damage that truck had after the filming of that jump /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    That would be "The Greatest American Stuntman" with Burt Reynolds and...uhhh... the guy who played Roscoe P. Coltrane on "The Dukes of Hazzard".

    A few years ago I got a little air with my Burb.

    The 10b rear didn't fare so well, the front was ok though.

    I won't jump it ever again, waaaaaay to heavy

    I did get my fiberglass CJ5 airborne all the time before I sold it.
    Never had any damage other than a scraped up roll cage from rolling it over in the mud once. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
    Did the same thing getting on the freeway one day (icey roads) got rid of it very soon after that.

    I jumped my toyota. It was a complete accident and never should have happened, but its a long story how it happened. Anywho, there was one witness besides myself and passenger, and according to him i had 6' of air. Im not sure how high i actually was, it was night time, but i believed him. I cleared a farm road and the ditch on the other side. when i landed, i broke a rear leaf spring, 1 shock mount, bent another shock, tore the gas tank skid off, destroyed the bump stop and colapsed its mount on the frame, broke passenger bucket seat, broke battery hold down, broke 2 body mounts, and my passenger dented his head. Jumping a truck that has spent its whole life in the rust belt is not fun. but on the bright side, i re-seated the tire on the bead and drove it back to the campfire, re-evaluated in the morning, and drove her home. No steering or frame damage, axles were still straight, and i didnt bleed. I landed in a farmfield right after a good rain, so i am sure the soft ground helped me a lot. Im just glad i cleared the ditch. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I didnt think it was bad at all for how fast i was going. If i hit the ditch i would have been screwed. Im also luck it didnt roll when the bead let go.

    I jumped my Jimmy a couple times at Sand Lake in Oregon a few years back. Mudhog has it on video somewhere, and I got about 3 feet of air under all four tires.

    Damage...nada, squat, dick, nothing. I wheeled for a while longer, then drove into Portland the following morning and got rear ended by a drunk. I got hit real hard, pushed me clear across 6 lanes...she was clocked at 70 by one witness who stayed to talk to the cops later. She hit the brakes with about 50 feet to go...

    I dusted myself off, found my ball cap talked to the cops and then drove it 300 miles home.

    That was a hell of a weekend. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I dunno if Shannon still has that video up somewhere or not, I might have a pic though. If I find it I'll post it up.

    I came away with very minor damage. When the truck hit the upper arms nailed my cross member and it rubbed the harmonic balancer under accleration. Pulled it back and no more problems.

    I jump my truck all the time. Last time I did, i managed to hit some whoops waaayyyy too fast and bounced and went about 6 feet in the air a couple times. That tweaked the frame a little bit, and bent both the front bumpstops all up. I also launched my truck pretty high and broke the rear shocks completely off. I havent hurt an axle jumping, even with my so-called puny 1/2 ton crap, just make sure you have good shocks, bumpstops, and limit straps and everything will be ok if you dont go crazy.
