it won't be i gurantee it, i beat the snot outa that rig, i don't see it surviving another year or two at most

thats the benfit or buying a rig for less then $600 and outside of buying tires spending no more then $1000 and going everywhere and then some that most jeepers can or can't for $20,000 and be just as reliable

to be 100% honest i think everyone would be amazed at just how little i have had to replace on that explorer after jumping it all those times

when i bought it i had to replace all susp components and steering and axles
and just about everything but the axles have a lifetime warranty (benefit of buying parts at wholesale and doing all the work yourself)

the only damage i can say was a direct cuase from the jumps is body damage from tires hitting, and i broke a hole in my frt diff twice (nothin jb weld couldn't fix) everything else thats been replaced i contribute more from trees getting in my way on trails and Mud tearing parts apart (balljoints, ujoints, etc...those get dirt in them and get loose)

but like i said, the wings have been clipped, since those vids/pics were taken earlier this summer i have installed a body lift and 36" tires and i think if i were to jump now, many many bad things would happen

yea, it survived no problem. But, you probably do have me beat, since it looks like you still have your explorer. That jeep is melted down somewhere. Gawd, I wish I had it on video. I just figured you might appreciate it since you're catching shit from people about "thats the way to beat your shit up", and all that nonsense. I, like you, enjoy the feeling of sailing through the air. nice pics

Mines the green explorer. on the last jump that day i popped the coil spring out on the passager side because of a broken shock. it taco'd the spring washer. i popped the spring in and drove it to work the next day.
i killed the motor in that one.
