    I'm going out on a limb and declaring the owner to be an idiot who watched too much Dukes of Hazard. "I paid $65,000 for this baby and I know it will do anything I want it to". Funny thing is that he found someone equally as stupid to do a ride along.

    How does one explain this to the insurance company and bank? Would Insurance be obligated to pay the claim? If he's this dumb, you know he didn't pay cash.

    Apparently he can afford it. Supposedly this was one of two Raptors the guy owned, and this one became a parts truck.

    Pic of one of the wheels and another vid from opposite side.

    Here's another pic showing the gap between cab and bed. Found it on another forum. Supposedly posted by a guy who knows the driver.

    A couple quotes from the guy: "I can say that about the only thing that looked straight and correct on a walk around was the hood and grill." and "He said that when he looked out the window and saw he was level with the tree line, he though..."oh shit"." lol
