Watch the farthest ever dune jump at Silver Lake

Silver Lake sand dunes in Michigan are a beautiful sight and also a popular destination for trophy trucks for impressive jumps.

All these trucks are built for the dunes with pretty much one goal – to jump as far as possible.

Mike Higgins recently managed to jump 180 ft (54 metres) in his Ford Raptor. It is the farthest ever jump in a vehicle at Silver Lake.

Take a look at the video below to see the truck go airborne and what happens to it after it meets the ground again.
