Did u ever over correct and get in an acc.?

I have had my Wrangler now over 3 years..i really enjoy it and will probably have a Wrangler forever..i realize about short based vehicles and how they can easily get into an accident.(i have an atv also) i was wondering if any of u were ever on the highway and had to swerve and it caused u to rollover..thanks for your responses...

A while ago a gentleman in a Large buick decided that he wanted my lane also. I had just gotten my TJ and was still use to driving a Dodge Quadcab. I put that baby on 2 wheels (probably only a few inches but it felt like I was going over). I gained control again and after I had all the rubber back on the road I relaxed and pulled the seat out of my #$^. Pucker factor was extreme.

Not a fun feeling at 70MPH.

I had someone pull in front of me out of a parking lot about 50 feet away while I was going 55 MPH in an SOA YJ with no track bars or sway bars. I somehow managed to swerve and turn the Jeep about 90 degrees so that when I went by him, we were looking over our hoods (his was about 2 feet lower than mine) at each other. His eyes were really big, as I am sure mine were. After I passed him, I got the Jeep pointed back in the direction that it was traveling, and had to pull over to let my heart rate come back down to a semi-normal level. I don't know if I ever had wheels off the ground, but after running it over and over in my head, the Jeep should have rolled doing what I did. Was a bit of a scare for me!

You are not supposed to be drag racing your Jeeps around corners Texapple. and it sounds like you were losing if you could see what his tires were doing.

i was fortunate in that i was on the highway one day when it was pouring rain and windy....and rather than rolling over, my jeep simply went into a 360 and spun into the guard rail two lanes over. no accident, just dented my rear corner and scared the yee-haw outta me. still dont like highway and rain.

You're right Kat. I told you a long time ago that I have mentioned many times that my jeep rolled and no one has ever asked how before.

Kat, you are the only one who knows the story. Should I keep them in suspense?

Still waiting to see how to roll a jeep at a complete stop. That takes talent.

I was hit by a drunk driver in my old YJ when he was doing over 65 MPH. He T-boned me at an intersection and it spun me around 180 degrees facing the other direction, the tires on the passenger side hit the curb it broke the bead on both tires and I wound up in some guys front yard. I was stunned when I got out and saw how far I was pushed and the fact that I spun and it didn't roll over. I still think that Jeep saved my life.
