YES!!! i love that video! i saw it months ago and couldnt find it anywhere...
The 22RE is an amazing thing.
And so is hyperbole. The wrecking ball didn't impact the cab or engine compartment, they put it on TOP of the falling building, etc.
But it's still funny!
dang they beat the sh*t outa that yota !
Yeah, they should have put it right NEXT of the building to bury it and wreck it for good!
That had a 2.4D...
Don't forget it also spent the entire night being beat to crap by the ocean by surf violent enough to break the moorings they used to try and keep it in place. Yes they put it on the top of a falling building, which is still a free fall with tons of concrete around it.
In reality one smack with a ball pein hammer would have permanently disabled that truck...same as any truck. Would any truck have survived what they put this one through? I have my doubts...
He DID say diesel, didn't he?
No argument that the Yota is built to last forever. While I refuse to set foot in a Toyota dealership ever again, having had nothing but fundamentally evil experiences with their staff, I must admit it's a hell of a vehicle.
All I was saying was they could have done MORE to kill if it they really wanted to -- bottom floor, crushing it UNDER the concrete, woulda done the trick, IMHO.
And no, I wouldn't subject a 73-75 Blazer to what they did to that Yota
Proof that while cars from the 80's suck, the trucks were nigh indestructible.
first 10 seconds of the vid shows a close up of the 2.4D fender badge...
I guess my point is they could have rendered it dead so easily which wouldn't have been near as much fun. For each 'test' they gave the truck a fair chance to survive. Would a Panzer tank have survived 'bottom' floor? Probably not, so how would that evaluate the toughness of this pick-up?
It doesn't, but it makes for good TV. And I want a Hilux regardless. Diesel solid axle mini-truck trail rig? FACTORY?
Are you serious? Those trucks are amazing; Id put one of those against a older Chevy anyday as far as dependablility goes
