That's a Ford Ranger by the guys over at AAC in Canada. Rob and them are holding it down for air hoppers in Canada that's for sure.
The truck does not have a motor or transmission in it and the air managment is all external. Doesn't matter because it still puts a good show on for everyone.
Here's some pictures of our hopper doing it's thing as well. This one is a complete driver with the original drivetrain in it, along with all the air managment. Truck has done 89 inches in the rear, 78 in the front, and can pancake over 72 inches as well.
Home of the Original 6 Link. We also carry a full line of air suspension components by::Chris Alston's Chassisworks, Viair, GC Xtreme, Slam Specialties, Grant Fabrication, DJM, Bell Tech, McGaughy's , Varishock, and many more.
Thats sweet! Thats a lot of weight with a motor and trans in it.

I drew up some Blueprints for a tube chassis air dancer, I have lots of time on my hands since the accedent. I hope one day i can build it. I wanna compete with other air hopper, Cause you know one day air hopping will be competitive as hydro hopers! I bet money in 5 years you go to a big show like ITB or heatwave they will have the hydro dance and the hydro hop and then the air dance and the air hop.

I got a question about that ACC hopper does that thing just hop or does it dance? Looks like the switchbox is small like only 2 or 3 switchs? Does it just have front up, back up, all up?
