Not photoshopped. Look at the wear pattern on those tires. They overinflate them prior to doing this. I've personally seen LCs and Patrols doing this at over 60mph(in Kuwait). Praise Allah.

I do have an actual tech question. In the second video it is quite clear that the wheels in the air are not spinning forward or reverse. If the diffs. where locked they would be spinning forward. if not, they should be spinning in reverse and eventually no forward motion would be possible. Do they use a limited slip or do they have 4 wheel independent braking control to lock the wheels that are in the air and put power to the wheels on the ground? I can understand the balance part of the trick and the deep pockets that allow you to learn without worrying about wrecking your truck but I don't understand how the drive train works in this trick.

here's some tech...

Wonder how the bearings/stubs axles/knuckles handle all the side stress?

I guess thats what happens when you have nothing better to do than pull sand out of your shorts all day. :rolleyes:

If you watch the videos, you will see the front tire in the air is stopped and the rear tire in the air is spinning, I think a rear diff lock is being used.

sir...in the second video..he has his rear diff lock switched..and the front is a OEM part time(aisin) not locked..so he is doing 4x2 only with the rear locked

PHA! Who needs a Landcruiser? Up until last year I was doing that every weekend in my Discovery.
