I found this earlier today. Off roading is fun and all but it ain't worth this.

Before anyone asks, the driver does make a full recovery. Hope y'all learn something.

Have fun and be safe!!

It was quite obvious what went wrong. Shouldn't have happen but it does. Safety is always priority one. One opinion I have though is if properly equipped with tools, and as many people as was around, the hardtop and doors could have been taken off in a very short time. Might have helped with extraction.

did she had a full roll cage? couldn't really see it, but the jeep held up really well. most rolls i've seen, the windshield was toast. this video puts a full cage higher up on my list.... that was scary.

That was a non-confident spotter giving ambiguous suggestions. Here's a straight up retarded spotter repeatedly giving the same dead wrong order:

Yes, why, why, why, why would you not go straight up instead of "turning your wheel all the way"

Not to sound like I know how that trail is, since ive never been past the mississippi in my Jeep, watch some other successful attempts at that same obstacle, they all turned the same way.

The goal is to slide off and continue side ways, not go straight up. Atleast thats what I saw in the videos where people made it.

Random, but the vid titled, "heart-attack." Was she actually having one?

She didn't look THAT old, I didn't see any chest shocks or whatever being done.

Just wondering if it was really necessary to do the life flight, etc.

Over all I hope she was OK, and had some good med insurance. Life flight here with just a REG helicopter is $21K.

wtf where you looking at??? the spotter was waving passenger over and over and driver didnt follow, then he went way passenger and got into a bad spot.. first off he took the worst line ever down that hill this is all due to people taking on more then they are able to handle and not paying attention to what they are doing..

the spotter wasnt the best in the world but i see what he was trying to do and it was a hell of a lot smarter then the driver..

actually.. you would want the wheel cut so that you can space the rear wheel up on the first landing.. the problem is she kept going that way instead of stoping and going back passenger side.. yet again people who dont know what they are doing

That's why I get out and walk down or up the obstical I'm about to do.. I know my line and where my tires need to go. I have never used a spotter and don't plan on using on. Know your vehicle and it's surroundings and you shouldn't need on. And the driver didn't seem to know their vehicle or the trail to well otherwise they wouldn't of given it the gas rights before it rolled. Hope they were ok. And poor jeep.

I saw the same thing. Starting right from the top, he told her to go passenger she stayed driver. He told her to straighten out she stayed turned.

This is exactly why I only try trails that are above my skill if I have certain people I trust and know what they are doing spotting me.
