If you are jumping the truck to the 5er or vice versa, just make sure if you have 6-volt batteries in series/parallel, get across 12-volts and not 6-volts.

Sure fire way to mess up an alternator ,,,

That were my thoughts to. You know how many of those cars they crashed making that show trying to make that jump. I dont remember the exact number they told us but it was a bunch they trashed figering out where to put the weight, speed, ect

"Can you jump your 5'er with your truck?"

From the side would be best.

Calculate the required speed & a launch ramp of appropriate length..[emoticon]

Check with Robbie Knievel.

All kidding aside, if you "jump" your 5'er *batteries* with your truck, chances are the trlr still won't start.
