Thank you insurance!!!
You don't think idiots wrecking $30,000 plus vehicles are going to raise the rates on the rest of us?

It still amazes me how people have no problem wasting that kind of money.

Makes me feel better that when I buy a Wrangler and if I let my kid drive it, they'll have a good chance of walking away from a rollover. Yeah, few vehicles would be driven away from a crash like this. Glad those folks appear uninjured and the Jeep soldiered onward.

I was impressed that it stayed running on its side and they told him to shut it off.

I hear ya, the first vid had a pretty well up there guy driving but the second was definitely young ones.

Just want people to know that lockers shouldn't be used all the time. (I've been being mentored by more experienced drivers in my club b/c I use to over use mine as well).

Sport cage has moved up a little higher on my mod list
After wheelin with friends a few years back and having a very dear friend roll his, that cage went from the bottom of the list right up to the top.

His roll was a complete fluke with one tire that ran up a sapling and it all happened so fast that there was just no stopping it.

Now, I have a full cage, it's not the biggest, best, baddest or fanciest, but it's more than what comes stock and I'm doggone glad to have it.

bbrown626 Put it in second gear and giver her all she's got!
Funny how dumb some people are. Four low, second gear, zero throttle and they would have crawled right through. It is a Jeep, not a pre-runner.
02-25-2012 11:28 PM
sandbaja In the sand video it looks like someone got ejected at the very end. Stupid driving and no seat belts?
02-25-2012 09:38 PM
mxwll That jeep could have crawled through there at idle. Glad no one was hurt.

Exactly. I've thought about getting those 3 point restraints because I'm paranoid. I used to be an EMT and can't believe people will even get in a moving vehicle without a seat belt. He's lucky he didn't get killed.

Like the first video, going WAY too fast!
02-25-2012 10:29 AM
JIMBOX No seat belts !

Too many younguns don't want ANY RESTRICTIONS ONEM--it don't matter what the result might be !

Live and learn--SOMETIMES !
