By the way, if that guy had the 2012 ESC system, it would have stopped him from rolling into that creek.




Just kidding.

The driver kinda looks like Santa Claus too. I bet that was a hard drive home.

I agree, but if he's really green and heading toward a creek and possibly doesn't know that there's a sharp, deep drop off there, not warning him and even affirmatively telling him to "give it what she's got" when "you hit second gear" probably was not very helpful.

Well, it's a damn shame it happened like it did. Looks like the drive and passenger got out fairly unscathed, that's a good thing. I was tickled to see the Rubi drive on out. YAY Jeep! took a lickin and kept on tickin!

In a situation like that there are so many different things to keep track of that I can see how it happened but feel badly that it did. It was definitely avoidable.

I tend to be overly cautious a lot of the time, I get some flack for it though.

One of the first ERRORS in jeep theology, is--put some big tires onit-liftit and now you can go "ANYWHERE"-

That driver didn't need a spotter, he needed some time in grade/time on site/time behind the wheel-

A jeep doesn't learn to drive you !

You learn to drive a jeep-

Morning Marine !

I agree. I'm just saying that the spotter wasn't helpful.

We can't know if the driver had any experience at all but based solely on what took place here it's a safe assumption he had none.

YOU NEVER SPOT AND FILM AT THE SAME TIME.

YUP, spotters can be helpful, even with drivers experience--especially on the Rubicon, but

To many times with a new driver--the spotter can take TOO MUCH of the drivers attention away from his driving position and unless you're a seasoned spotter--

Hand signals can be really stupid/wrong/unreasonable/non-descript !

Ain't jeepin fun ?

Needs a place firmly cemented on FailBlog. Bad spotting or not, that was some really bad driving.

No spotter in the world can save you from a driver who thinks he should gun it over the side of a small drop off. It's not like he couldn't see the ravine, or the mud puddle he was blitzing.

but, in the interest of fairness, in my mind this is what happened

he went over the hill, and started to go down into the mud
got excited to go through the mud
gunned it, bumped it at the bottom knocking his steering wheel around
got confused from the bump as he exited, and didn't realize he was going right instead of left/straight
locked up the brakes, slide due to mud, rolled

still an idiot though

Realistically in the aftermath here, how does one approach contacting his/her insurance regarding something like this? What type of coverage would he need here?

comp and collision. Just call them up, explain they jeep rolled off the path while on a legal road (perhaps clarify it as an offroad road, but still legal), and proceed

What type of deductible would you get hit with to cover everything? I guess the answer is kinda obvious. It would be the comp/collision one but I'd imagine it be several thousand dollars and that's before the higher insurance comes into play on the next vehicle resulting from this.

The angle on that break pretty much THROWS you toward the canyon on the right when the rear axle hits the bottom. I'm glad the spotter figured that out and started telling people to aim right for him from the start. Not that it seemed to matter much, but at least he wasn't advising people hammer-down and basically launch it off a ramp.

News doors and a new top? Looks ok to me. Reason to upgrade!

Glad everyone's ok though.

That was AWESOME!!

Great job getting it on camera!

If insurance won't cover it let me know. I will send $10 their way. It was worth it just to see it.

If 3,000 people sent them $10...

Can you get some video talking to them both about it????

To much Jeep with to little experience. One of the reasons I hate to see new guys asking about lifts and things before they ever take their rigs offroad stock.

I don't necessarily see the issue with gunning it. May not have been best approach but flinging mud is fun. My issue is that he had to know the ledge was there and didn't let off the gas when he started to slide sideways. That's the drivers fault and not the spotter. Poor rubi...
