That was a mistake doing it when it was dry like that, all the tires are going to do is grip, and if it catches, or hit a pothole going that fast, your toast.

more like why does he have the spare mounted so dang high. nothing like raising the center of gravity more on a narrow truck.

doesnt look like the windows broke, maybe it survived ok

Thats why they have the high risk of roll-over warning stickers all over when your truck is new.

I've been SOOOOOOO flippen close to doing that. The same thing happend to me when I had just my lift & stock tires. The passengers side went down & my friend ross was looking dead at the ground beside him. But I wasn't going near as fast as him. I do thank the Lord, cuz I have no clue what I would of told my parents.

WOW! This is kinda off topic, but I know a fella that decided to try a "J" turn in a parking lot with a brand new (at the time) 2004 Toyota 4dr 4wd pickup. That truck was soooo beautiful and it flipped so gracefully. The guy was ok, but his intellegent father ran from the law on the way to see what his intellegent son did... Needless to say, they both went "downtown". Funny stuff.

My buddy thought it'd be cool to do that in his 01 ranger xlt. Then he thought it'd be cool to hit the 4hi switch after a rotation or two. Another reason why idiots shouldn't have 4wd. If you can't figure out how to use a manual transfer case, you prolly shouldn't be using 4wd.
