    Yes the three might tip the vehicle over.

    On a more serious note I will never allow my children or grandchildren to pose like this, never ever.

    That pic sends chills down my spine.

    I see the left rear wheel is on a bit of a slope. So I presume it could slip down said slope. The consequences are too horrific to imagine.

    Putting it very diplomatically... this is utterly irresponsible.

    Unless its photoshopped.

    Reminds me of what I read the other day about how we kids used to play and were up too - bicycle helmets were not invented, many cars had no safety belts, jungle gyms were tall climbing trees, catching a ride on tractor fenders, or on the back of an attached implement, or on top of a trailer filled with hay, fishing off rickety rafts made from 44 gallon drums, without life jackets........etc etc

    If itís not dangerous itís certainly a pretty pointless measuring exercise ...

    What's worse is, it seems to be an extra cab, certified to carry 2, that's carting kids in the back...

    Blame the Mazda Now if that dad drove a proper SFA with lots of flex there would have been no room for risky pic`s.
    He would have all 4 wheels on the ground.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.
