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...
Owner stock 89 Wrangler 4.2,5 speed,,110,000 miles
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.
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!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
a friend & I, side by side in a two lane left turn ( I was on the the inside lane), light changed, we took off....going around the turn his driver's side came off the ground for a moment or two He drives an LJ with 4" lift, 33" tires.
got rid of the husband.....bought another Jeep
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.
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.
