    The running boards were nearly touching the ground at landing.

    The "other" was launched at least twice as high into the air. Not even close to the same.

    No, at the take off point, they are about the same. There's a huge drop in the landing zone in your video which does increases the distance. However, more substantially, the Gen 1 was heavier, had smaller shocks, and landed badly. Primarily the fact it landed on one wheel.

    Not sure why you are against a video showing a stock truck land a pretty gnarly jump, unless you just don't like the fact it is a Gen 2?

    A friend, who owned Mjonir (a souped-up Gen 1) ended up getting a Gen 2. His words after seeing this video, were, I quote: "LOL - his rebound is higher than most others jump...if that right front survived, makes a strong argument against upgrading shocks on gen 2's"

    When did I say, or imply that? I'm just stating that the video of Gen 1 jump you referred to as "contrastable" with this one was actually way higher. The Gen 2 would have been severely damaged as well at that height.

    Someone gets it... 32 ft/s/s. Every foot is a BIG difference.

    I love showing vids of the raptor sending it to the squirrels at work who are die hard chevy fans. Impressive that a landing that hard on oem suspension didn’t cause major damage. Can’t wait to get all of my new parts on this spring.

    Nothing about those two jumps is even close to the same.
