well we didnt; have a picture but 2 years ago after a multi hour car repair session after qualifying up at watkins glen we left the track for some dinner and if anyone of you have been to watkins you know its in the middle of nowhere. The road taht leads back to town has a roalroad crossing. Well 3 of us in a 1990 dually hit the tracks/crossing at about 65. I know my head hit eth cielign of the truck and all 4 wheels were airborne. Lord i wish we had a picture!!!!!

another good one we used to do was on bridges where the sidewalk raised up like a foot from the road, put the right 2 tires on it and ride across the bridge that way. dumb but fun. that and rodeo baja. One guy lays on the roof of the truck holding onto the door openings (drip rails)with the windows down and go offroad untill he'd either fall off, into the bed or onto the hood.
