    dirt bike, much easier and safer to jump.

    also much cheaper than making a truck jump.

    If you look carefully at the video, you can see where he made his mistake.

    He has a TRD Sport.

    You need the Off-Road to do that.

    Better suspension and the right landing. I'm not really running anything special. 5100's all around with TSB leafpack with AAL and some LR UCA's

    I hit bumps when I land but I have done some 30-40 jumps now with no problems at all. Landings can be rough (probably really rough when compared to a good LT kit) but I don't think they aren't too bad. I have about 10" of travel up front and 13" in the rear. I could probably do some more high speed stuff in the whoops and what not by I need some shorter bumps stops in the rear they hit too soon and I buck easy. A little stiffer valving would be nice too. haha

    Those last 3 pics I posted I was doing about 40mph. There are some videos of me doing those same jumps at around 60mph but I haven't got them from my friend yet and his facebook profile is set to private so you can't see them unless you are friends with him.
