Possibly Stupid Question

This is a hypothetical question that one of my friends asked me and i honestly couldn't answer him. If you flipped a 2 door wrangler TJ (in my case 2006) on to one of its side, how many people dog you think it would take to flip back onto its wheels. Assuming that it is not damaged. What do you think how many people for a 2 door and possibly a 4 door?

Hhmmm, let me state that I've never tried to flip a Jeep. But when rolling something, the entire weight of item isn't lifted. The weight needed to roll becomes less as the items center of gravity gets close to the corner.

The terrain would also come into play. Considering that the reason for the roll (hill, rock, tree) may still be there, that could make it harder.

I think on level ground, 2-3 normal guys could get a Jeep back on it's wheels by themselves.

Yep, thats a possibly stupid question, don't think I want to try it with my jeep but will be glad to help you do it with yours so that we can come up with the correct answer. Just let me know cause I always like to know the answer just in case somebody else asks.
