They hit the ground with a massive thud and continue to roll for a moment afterwards. Oddly, it isn’t the axle that breaks, or the steering column, and the tires stay perpendicular to the ground – so what does give way? The impact broke the engine block itself! The good ol’ truck bled out, and oil was everywhere. Interestingly, the oil actually caught on fire for a little while before, at last, it was all over.
These guys were definitely not shy about jumping their truck, and it paid the price – there’s no doubt about that! Nonetheless, I can’t think of a Ford fan out there who wouldn’t take off their hat in a courteous respect for this trustworthy Ranger. Take a look at the video below and watch this Ford leap to its death!
