He probably would have been in much better shape had he properly secured his counterbalance load too.

I was amazed to see the super sunroof make it through that. When I saw the shattered glass I was sure he had a new convertible...

Yep...most of the tailgate and maybe the rear quarter damage, and the rear glass shattered, came from those wheels/tires.

Someone did point out that the drivers side cab corner is bent in, where the bed hit it. Not sure if it indicates the frame is perma-tweaked or just that it flexed on impact (since yes, steel does flex and can do so without perma-bending)

Either way, it was fun to watch but as someone who actually cares about their vehicles (not just my RAM) I hate when people like that guy get clicks, merch orders, etc.

Lots of people (me included) cannot afford stuff like that, but he goes and destroys it and shrugs it off because the internet will buy his stuff and sub to his channel anyway.

The truck held up better than I expected based on the way it landed. When he closed the driver's door after the jump, it sounded like it closed pretty easily. It was hard to catch from the video, but he was over 50 (I think it was 52 on the spedo when the camera view changed, might have been 62) and landed on the front right wheel. It was better than the Raptor fared when it launched at 60 and blew the airbags and tires. Personally would love to have that kind of disposable cash, but would never do that to my vehicle.
