Boulder Loaded Into Pickup Bed Destroys Truck's Suspension

June 13, 2018

boulder-vs-truck-suspension.jpg

This is a video of a boulder being loaded into the rear of an old Ford Ranger and absolutely wrecking the truck's rear suspension. The sound it makes -- that is the sound of a truck shitting the bed. Trust me, I've been with my fair share of freaky trucks. Obviously, this video is a great opportunity for a competitor like Dodge to make a commercial advertising how much more tough and rugged their suspension is and how much bigger and sexier their super manly trucks will make your dingdong.

Keep going for the video, actual drop is at 1:15.

Thanks to M Cooper, who wants to know what the hell that boulder was for. My guess is making sure the truck doesn't catch air.

    That rock has to weigh more than 500 pounds like the guy in the video says to completely compress the suspension to the point of crushing it like that.

  • Jeff Brown

    Whoever thought a ranger pickup truck could carry that much weight deserves this, unbelievable. I didn't notice but for the video start with "watch this, hold my beer" ?

  • Tony Sifuentes

    To whoever wrote this article, don't ever refer to a man's "ding dong" again.

  • paperboy

    Wasn't even a full-sized pickup. Good job, dudes.

    1st Q: Why drop the boulder in from the side???
    2nd Q: .....why?

  • TheQiwiMan

    It's cool guys, they put a teeny tiny little pallet in there, everything should be fine.

    This video rocks

    Might want to check your volume if you're watching at work. A bit of colourful language along the way.

    Also AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHahahahahahahaha a Ranger is a COMPACT truck. It's the ultimate old man truck (my grandfather rocked one forever). And this was a 'sport' model to boot. That boulder was probably 3-4 times heavier than its typical capacity. I mean, Rangers are also called half-tons for a reason...

  • GeneralDisorder

    If the guys in the video were right the rock was 1700 pounds and rangers are rated about 500. So, less than a ton over. But more than a half ton over (on a quarter ton truck)

  • Draco Basileus

    Have fun getting that thing off the back of the truck.

    Note: I'm stealing someone's comment from reddit

    Just sprinkle salt in the bed and on the frame. The rock will be on the ground in a couple weeks.

    I like how everyone was only concerned with whether GW will come back to CA from his Florida vacation with Mickey Mouse in his luggage to keep as a slave who cooks for him, etc.

    Tell us more about the 'etc.' part of this.

  • Mark

    Not sure what they expected would happen. Anyone in their right mind would know better than to do that.

  • Bling Nye

    No no, I've seen this before, the boulders are always made of foam, it's no problem.

  • Mark

    You mean like the imitation rocks used on the original Star Trek episodes?
    :-D

    Yeah, you just gotta act like they're heavy!

  • Mark

    Ha!
    One of my favorite episodes!!

  • Doog

    I like how everyone was only concerned with the placement of the rock, not whether the entire idea was terrible or not.

  • Geophph

    I like how the guy was yelling at the operator, insulting him his skills, because the bucket might bump the top of the bed ignoring the fact that it would probably cause the boulder to drop.
