The truck has a smart crush zone, in the event of a roll over.

Interesting concept, would love to see how he gets it up there having done this.

It has got be at least twice as high.
In my engineering circles there is a saying, "anything can be built once, never to be duplicated again".

I think a wind deflector would have been cheaper and easier to install.

Upside-down on top of the car. Takes care of the no wind deflector problem at the same time.
