Default Video of flying Cherokee

My brother got coaxed a little over the 4th of July, and a friend just emailed this phone video to me. Let's see if I can get it to work.

Not that it's the most impressive thing ever, but it is a stock Jeep, and he drove it home, no breakage.

Looks like that dune was just right to give you the needed angles to jump without damage....too bad :tonka:

Thats a decent video for a simple camera phone. Nice jump. Looks like the perfect speed to land on all fours for that dune.

There used to be a railroad track at an angle across a road near home when I was in high school...made for a perfect ramp in my truck...but bad for low ground clearance vehicles. Once this guy chased me in an old Iroc. I hit those tracks at a perfect 40mph and landed on all fours. Looked in my rearview an saw that Iroc with sparks shooting out from under it coasting to the curb. I really wish I had a camera shot of that.
