The ride differences look to be more a result of available travel and shock tuning. The Jeep (was that a Cherokee) launches when it bottoms out. The shocks are not doing their job.

Wait until kids grow up and just enclose their two-wheeled non-hovering crap!

Would be interesting to know if they have sway bars on the truck. Seems like the suspension is very independent.

That stadium truck example is ridiculous!! I'd almost have to believe it's fake, but it isn't.

Both of those trucks have a solid rear axle. Difference is suspension design and tuning specifically for speed, among a great deal of other differences. That Cherokee is probably worth maybe $20-$50k, generously. Trophy trucks can cost anywhere from $200k to $1,000,000. This gif shows nothing as far as IFS benefits vs solid axle and the comparison is just nonsense.
