As many of you may know, I recently bought a parts truck. Most of the parts that were spoken for were already pulled (my brother is keeping the trans for his J10 projects). So, what do you do when you have a driveway you can jump and a cheap beater that is going to get scrapped? You jump it!

 

The front leaf spring mounts became detached, so we ratchet strapped them good enough to stay together. You can see in a video that I ran down to the MJ when my dad was driving it. That was because it was on fire, the injector o rings leak. Here are some pics, the videos will be posted shortly.

My second jump, not as good as the first. 6B9CDE4A-0409-42DE-81A7-EC8E31A69055.jpeg.a12996d1473b583790fccbf472a4ed7e.jpeg

My first, and best jump. It really just looks like crappy photoshop, but it isn’t.

I believe I have a photo in there, and a link to this thread, but I’ll link a video too.

Oh it was more than a little fun :D 

Now you're gonna want an off-road toy you can beat on over and over again and not worry about the frame disintegrating.

Lol there ya go, I'd be a little weary doing it with a unibody though, long term it'll get bent up. 

 

I bought my 98 Suzuki Sidekick for $200, put $100 in it to fix it, and regularly drive it like you did this truck, wide open and airborne!  Best $300 I ever spent!

Actually, I just remembered that we plan to make one of my brothers J10s a beater to wheel and jump.
