Figures it's some !@#$ from my state. But I'm pretty sure you just need some trim restorer and it'll be good to go

Dunno, I see one scratch thats pretty deep. I think it's into the paint

On a serious note, someone was watching over that family that day. To roll 20x and live is one thing. But for 3 people to live is amazing.

I can already picture the driver... A big dumb idiot jock that probably fell into the wrangler more than anything, and then took it to the nearest piece of dirt he could find.

Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

I'm glad the family survived, especially the boy. I have a 8yr old daughter, and couldn't imagine being in that situation w her and/or the wife.

But that all aside.... I am absolutely awestruck that jeep kept them intact for the most part.

Wasn't there a member here that rolled his jeep on the highway when he got cut off? 3 times I assume and he crawled out of it.

Makes me feel a little better knowing they can roll like that and chance of survival is still there.

Steep ski slope with your 6yr old in a car seat... priceless. Was it Barney Fife?

Maybe the pic is really deceiving, but that hill doesn't look particularly dangerous if you pick a good line...

I snowboard there every winter. It's a double black ski slope. But it's a bike trail in the summer. It's not a difficult run either way. But shit happens ya know

I was thinking the same thing but know that pics often times don't do the trail justice.

The Jeep knew it was done for, it tossed the kid out in a final act of love. Now it is in the ultimate wheeling location.

I know someone is wondering if they can pick it up on a salvage title...

Maybe the family of that roll over on a "steep" slope should consider safer ways to going about it:
