Yeah it looked to me like they didnt build the mounts in double shear. That's the problem with show trucks. All show and no go. That rear steering axle sure looked snazzy though.

After that they should've lined all of those people up and shot em in the face. What a bunch of idiots. You don't go jumping a bigass SHOW TRUCK like that. No matter how little/big the jump.

oh come on Kyle! that is a full assumption. That truck was at Indy's show a few months ago but i cant remember if it was double shear or not.

btw that is a heavy **** to be jumping like that. to build trucks that can withstand jumping is far different than normal driving or wheeling.

i kinda feel bad for him

1/2" bolts are fine for shocks, needs to be double shear and it would have been fine.
