Video: Ford Raptor Jumps Like a Velociraptor

Antti Kautonen February 4, 2013 Hoon Hall of Fame, Terrible Ideas 26 Comments


Some dudes hooning a black Ford Raptor on some jumping grounds misjudge the velocity necessary to complete a jump. In a classic display of “Hey y’all, watch this!” the Raptor is launched high into the air, and the inevitable landing sounds painful. There’s some very entertaining HD video, and some NSFW language to top it off.

Make the jump. Seriously, make the jump to see the clip.

The landing is rough enough to set off the airbags, and I’m sure the frame isn’t too straight after that either. But what wouldn’t you do for entertainment? We’re waiting for the Air Raptor special edition.

    That idiot doesn't deserve to own a Raptor.

    • craigsu

      That's why it's called Rednecks With Paychecks

  • 🙁

    That emoted, I had to watch the jump at least 5 times.

    RRRRRRrrrrrrr CRUNCH!!!!!

    RRRRRRrrrrrrr CRUNCH!!!!!

    Anyway, what $kaycog said.

  • I'm sure someone is gonna be pissed that Ford won't cover the repairs for that under warranty.

  • Foolish

    Don't worry, $kaycog, he doesn't, anymore! 😉

  • Irishzombieman

    Wow. That was spectacular. . .

    . . .ly stupid.

  • MVEilenstein

    Another guy with a lot of money who failed to understand the purpose of a Raptor.

    It's set up for desert running, not motocross.

  • Somebody just watched the first season of Top Gear USA.

  • I am so freakin' jealous.

  • schigleymischke

    Notice the fluids all over the impact spot? Think that's from the truck or the passengers?

  • Did like 1/10th once and nearly pooed myself.

    Jeep was no worse for it, though…

  • Spencer

    as a man who has jumped a car maybe 3 feet in the air.

    i bet the fluids on the ground were from him

    its a positively uplifting, and very scary experience.

    I sent my old '93 Audi 100cs Quattro airborne when I hit a set of train tracks at about 140-160km/h

    I remember my thought process:
    "Someone told me the tracks were rough, I resolved to float over them at high speed"

    What they didn't tell me was that there was a lip right before the tracks…

    Amazingly, nothing more than a wheel bearing was lost. One of the scariest moments of my life.

  • Tom Lee

    They need to have their heads examined. What idiot does that to a truck.
    Now how does he make payments on it….. oh yeah, Carfax wouldn't show it………….
    what a dumby,
    but then I watched it a few times to see if the landing was oil and fluids, or just plowed up dirt.
    Still not sure.

  • FrankTheCat

    Also note how all the airbags went off, and the front suspension developed some nice aggressive camber. 'Meriga.

  • Newport Pagnell

    Straightenin' the curves,
    Flattenin' the hills.
    Someday the mountain might get 'em but the law never will.

  • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

    Do the 4-ways on the Raptor come on automatically with SRS deployment?

    • Vairship

      Possibly, but I'm pretty sure the tailgate isn't supposed to come loose.

  • haha! that was epic! that raptor is toast!

  • Thank you for another magnificent article. Where else may just anyone get that type
    of information in such an ideal approach of writing?

    for such information.

  • I am in fact thankful to the holder of this website who has shared this enormous

    article at at this place.

  • Thanks for sharing such a pleasant opinion, article is good,
    thats why i have read it fully

  • An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was conducting a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me breakfast because I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this topic
