Fearless Ford Ranger Handles Multiple Jumps like a Champ
Old school Ranger takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’, barely faltering after the hard landings.
This week’s Freaky Friday video comes to us from the Surrey Customs YouTube channel and it features an older Ford Ranger taking one hell of a beating. The video details that “on July 4th 2016, four men paved their way into the history books by changing the way you look at a Ford Ranger”. Based on the spray paint all over the truck coupled with the action in this clip, we would guess that these guys are just trying to kill the truck before it goes to the junkyard, but in any case, it makes for a pretty funny video.
The video above begins with a picture of the Ford Ranger before it received its unique paint job, followed by a Napoleon Dynamite meme asking if it had been off any sweet jumps. That is some not-so-subtle foreshadowing of what is to come, and the jumping action is pretty sweet.
This team of filmmakers and their trusty Ford Ranger have a small dirt jump that is actually a pair of jumps with one smaller bump leading to a bigger jump that sends the truck into the air. Each time that they hit it, they do so with more speed and that leads to more air, but the Ranger holds up remarkably well.
A Touch of Humor
After the video begins with a Napoleon Dynamite meme, “Eye of the Tiger” kicks in with different images of the Ranger flashing across the screen. As the music continues, the little Ford takes its first run at the jump, slamming down and rolling to a stop, but it continues around for another shot.
The footage then moves to the in-car, where we watch as Wyatt “Ron Jeremy” Engg and Dawson “El Taco” Juarez take to the sky in the Ranger. They have on helmets and life preservers for safety, and based on how much they bounced around, any protection is a good idea.
With varying music in the background, this Ranger shows that like the F-Series, these smaller trucks are built Ford tough.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
