I wish there was video of @85_Ranger4x4 's rig in action. I'd like to see how that old girl performs after all of his suspension upgrades.

My suspension is pretty much stock with heavier stock springs. Might have been a little bouncy but I was doing crazy crap I had never done before so it is hard to judge.

I have no complaints on how my truck did Saturday @PetroleumJunkie412 was right behind me thru hell and high water, it was amazing what a stock truck on bald stock size street tires can do.

I have video from inside the truck that kinda shows what was going on but I gotta dub music over the wife freaking out..

I get a message saying it's not available. Double check the sharing settings on it, guessing you shared it with friends, not having it public
Public now, gotcha. I shot it as Facebook Live so it's not stored on my phone to upload. Some of the other vids I shot are uploaded to YouTube, search for user joninpgh.

Jon - Is it okay if I post it via Youtube? I snagged a copy of the video from your Facebook post.
