Oh you gotta look at this, the whole vid:
And here it is in action. Best part is at the end:
Expensive bit of fun, just proved what I thought when I watched the first video, "looks like a trailer queen, wouldn't be able to handle a minor bump in the road."

Ummm... fork's bent?
A lot of money spent to look cool and to be more "bro."
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

At 0:56 in the first video there's a good shot of the suspension. By the looks of that, and the fact that it all happened on one side, I'm guessing some fool forgot to tighten the nuts enough or the nuts were not on at all.
If you look at the slo-mo, you can see the right side wheels drooping in the air, and in both cases, the right tire makes contact with the ground much before the left tire, showing that the suspension had already come apart in mid-air.
More on that truck.
Built by a professional shop for Chevy it appears. Wonder if that was taken as they tested prototype stuff.
I'll stick with my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
