RevCo666 Maybe the family of that roll over on a "steep" slope should consider safer ways to going about it:

ktulu 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...

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

Tweak looks like someone got the trail diamonds and slope diamonds mixed up.

Smythe86 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

st1264 Steep ski slope with your 6yr old in a car seat... priceless. Was it Barney Fife?

laollis Proves that ya can't fix stupid. Glad his wife and son are ok. Someone also wrote that he is a cop.

JKU.12 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.

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

legitposter 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.

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.

microage97 That jeep won't do that again. I guess the stock roll cage is pretty good..

Smythe86 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

HK_Runner Did he turn sideways a bit, I wonder. SO SO lucky!
