It seems that popular YouTuber StreetSpeed717 is making a good living jumping expensive cars with the Ram 1500 TRX. After jumping his first TRX over a small creek (to which the truck suffered significant damage), the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission brought 18 criminal charges against him for his viral jump video after an anonymous tipster sent a complaint to the state Game Commission’s Operation Game Thief tip line. The result would lead you to think that his TRX jumping days would be over.
Instead, he continued to jump other objects away from the watershed that created the original fiasco. Back in September, you might remember that StreetSpeed717 and another popular YouTuber (Vehicle Virgins), took StreetSpeed717’s third 2021 Ram 1500 TRX and jumped over two berms with his rare 2017 Dodge Viper GTC ACR Snakeskin Edition in the middle. While the gap was barely big enough between the two berms to fit the 1 of 31 limited edition Viper, the jump was a success with the TRX being close to clipping the roof of the Viper.
Now equipped with a new 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition, StreetSpeed717 and friends take the Hellcat-powered performance off-roader to the air once again. But this time, he is jumping an $800,000 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Instead of jumping over the car width-wise like the Viper, the Aventador was placed length-wise. Making the Aventador more challenging to jump. It did help that this time, the ramps were well-groomed and wider.
Love him or hate him, people may think that his series of jumps are either very ballsy or moronic. But he does show us how the TRX acts in the air, something that 99.9% of people will never do with their $100,000 supercharged performance off-roader.
