Geez, does the windshield roll bar do anything? Those first couple of backwards falls looked fatal.

Not "alot"...ALL of it was poor decision making and driving. I've seen most of those vids before. A high percentage of them were taken in Moab. Some people get just plain stupid while here, especially during Jeep Safari. If you are going to leave your brains at home, please leave the poor dogs there too.

Theres were a small percentage that the driver just made a line.mistake, others gave way too much throttle and brake during tedious situations.

My two favorites are the one where the dog bails out the back and high-tails it out of there, and the last one where the dude just powers through and puts her back on her wheels. That's just being cool

Dumb drivers, Almost all those could have been prevented just by letting off the gas. I love the 2nd one where the tire carrier falls off, would like to know the brand of that one.

You're missing the obvious... this is what happens when you don't keep your blinker fluid at equal levels!

i thought i was the only one that caught the blinker fluid level was uneven..

i often tell people how important the blinker fluid levels are in keeping perfect balance

There's a fine line between brave & stupid. Most of those guys crossed the line.

Poor driving, spotting, line choice, suspension, and one case of bad luck. That video has a little bit of everything.

Nope, not a thing. If your gonna offroad much, get a better cage system.

Makes you realize how the weak point of the Wrangler is the windshield frame buckeling like a beer can not the roll bars!

Had they bought Hummers, they never would have flipped. They wouldn't have ever made it far enough to worry about it.

I've never had anything like what's in that video come close to happening to me, even while mall crawling.

The one where the guy was sliding in the snow and rolled down the cliff was really scary. It looked like he went WAY down. I would love to know he walked away from that.

If it makes you feel better, the land cruisers roof is just as bad. One roll and it was six inches from the dashboard.

Right, but do Land Cruisers roll as easily as Wranglers? It seems odd to me that a brand that's so infamous for rolling would make the area that's directly above the driver's head into a crumple zone! But hey - at least the dog got out alive because it was in the back, right?

So what about this - useless or not? Windsheild Guard, un-painted

-Wondering if wheelers should wear helmets.

If they bolt to the windswild above the hinge, than my guess is no.. You can buy kits that take the windshield out of the equation though.
