"He should have braked instead of hitting the gas, it would have brought the rear end down."
"Hitting the brakes causes the nose to dip and rear end to rise."
I'd say it would not make a difference. The only way he could sorta make it would be to load weight in the back, although I`m not sure how the rear suspension would handle it. He has a lot of weight in the front of the truck (probably a diesel engine to make things worse) and nothing in the back. Never had a chance to make it.

@Tekas Hitting the brakes has a massive effect on a car's weight distribution. Ordinarily, when stunt drivers train for jumps even lifting off from the throttle moments before jumping can mean the difference between making a safe landing and flipping the car.
