Flippit! Even with those signatures I can barely believe that photo. Thats huge air!
Has nothing broken on that truck as a result of these jumps?

It only looks like he cleared the Cruiser, given the angle at which the photo was taken.
The Cruiser is in the foreground. Appears larger than the Patrol because it is closer.
Still impressive

Jip Graham, my co-driver's skull broke my sunroof's inner lid :lol: On landing some cosmetics at the rear comes lose (the back tyres pops out the fibre glass covers over the rear mud guards - but you just press them back.

Although the Patrol is an extremely tough vehicle, I will not recommend this kind of jumps as a hobby - the vehicle takes a lot of strain because of the weight that you bring back to earth.

Any other fabricate would brake in half on landing!

Jy is reg Alex, die Cruiser het op die voorgrond gestaan - die dame wat die foto geneem het het ook effens teen n duin gestaan, dus het die foto baie uniek uitgekom. Maar maak geen fout - die Patrolliemotor was steeds baie hoog in die lug

Yip. Wat se hulle altyd ? Om oud te word is onvermydelik. Om gevrek te wees is 'n keuse. :)

Faan - daai is awesome fotos. Lekker man. Lekker... :rolling: :rolling:

Yip, I definitely knew is wasnt actually going over the cruiser - a very cool angle that the pic was taken from though.
Very very impressive!

And Im glad to hear nothing major broke on it, gives me even more confidence in mine now (not that I will be doing any jumps though! :lol: )
