There was people watching for other cars, if you think it's stupid, dig a hole and put your head into it as only then, will you not see people doing stuff that is fun but to certain people is stupid!

I did did stuff like that in my old neon and nothing ever broke, does that mean Neon > Ranger? lol

you're lucky i've never filmed my 'fun runs' or even the 'drunk runs' when i'm camping.

you'd never be able to say that again.



That was kind of a baby jump.....go bigger next time!!!!
Nice speed and landing, just not enough of a jump =]
