MrDerp I'm not sure if you have seen this video but this also shows how stupid people can be with Jeeps. I would not have the volume very loud as it starts quiet and then picks up. You will see Enjoy and if this isn't the place for this mods please delete this. Sorry

JeffC That poor guy in the snow just rolled out into the forest

firecapt Wow. Scary and fun to watch at the same time!

GunToter Cant yall see every one of those videos is fake? NONE of them blew up, in the movies vehicles always blow up when they roll.

I cringed when I saw the cj5 slide sideways & over the hill. This video doesn't make me want to try rock crawling that's for sure.

stonewall_jeep Its funny when you watch these videos the part that seems to be unscathed is the soft top! Seems like they would rip. But damn the last video was crazy! That's some driving

tonyroc14 Luckily no dogs were harmed in the making of that film. Poor pups running away!

The fact is that Land Cruisers don't roll as much as wranglers because most of the guys with Cruisers are just doing the overlanding thing. In comparison to to Jeeps, I hardly see any cruisers playing in the rocks.

The stock roll cage isn't THAT bad, many people walk away from severe rollovers with them. That being said I do plan to upgrade my roll cage to prevent the front from folding in like that. But I would certainly take the stock setup over a poorly designed cage though.

Those guards you linked are for if you hit your windshield on trees and what not, it won't provide any real structural rigidity.

If they bolt to the windswild above the hinge, than my guess is no.. You can buy kits that take the windshield out of the equation though.

Salty1 Some of these show that speed can kill, well Jeeps that is.... Loved the last video though, was amazed how he managed to get it back onto the wheels....
01-11-2013 03:54 PM
Carlsbad0331 The one where the guy was sliding in the snow and rolled down the cliff was really scary. It looked like he went WAY down. I would love to know he walked away from that.

Had they bought Hummers, they never would have flipped. They wouldn't have ever made it far enough to worry about it.

I've never had anything like what's in that video come close to happening to me, even while mall crawling.

dukedallas Makes you realize how the weak point of the Wrangler is the windshield frame buckeling like a beer can not the roll bars!

Nope, not a thing. If your gonna offroad much, get a better cage system.

Imped Poor driving, spotting, line choice, suspension, and one case of bad luck. That video has a little bit of everything.
01-11-2013 09:24 AM
Steve305 You guys have heard me say it before .....

There's a fine line between brave & stupid. Most of those guys crossed the line.

BAP i thought i was the only one that caught the blinker fluid level was uneven..

i often tell people how important the blinker fluid levels are in keeping perfect balance
01-10-2013 11:19 PM
Redrammer99 You're missing the obvious... this is what happens when you don't keep your blinker fluid at equal levels!
01-10-2013 11:01 PM
Moabrubi Dumb drivers, Almost all those could have been prevented just by letting off the gas. I love the 2nd one where the tire carrier falls off, would like to know the brand of that one.
01-10-2013 10:31 PM
allblackedout Dam some of those are really scary. First few look like the people were really injured. Terrible what a little skinny can do....😉
