The Graco Bumper Jumper from Stratus(Yes, That's the Real Name)

Dad acquires a new special tool for testing shock absorbers directly from the manufacturer. Dodge offers on Amazon this $27 Bumper Jumper built explicitly for them by Graco for testing the back shock absorbers on their new line of Pseudo Classic "Stratus" pickup trucks. Boy, can this beauty Conga-Line down the road with their "Cars" inspired Highway Shimmy active suspension option. Tow-Mater eat your heart out. The Highway Shimmy tester tool also comes in a bundle with Junior's second favorite option, the "Tractor Tipping Steamship Horn."
