That was pretty interesting. I am very glad that everyone involved was alright. Says a lot about a good roll cage. Keep up the safe work.

Looks like the passenger was lucky it didn't roll completely, looks like he was grabbing the roll bar as it was going over. Good way to lose some digits.

It's not the thing you fling, It's the fling itself!

It causes me pain to see folks trying to make an old Jeep go fast. They just weren't very good at it. Looks like everyone got out OK, with nothing worse than a stiff neck to show for the ride. That's good. Need a new windshield frame and hood. That's bad.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Ya think? I was wondering if it was intentional the way he drove straight into it. Maybe just the speed and blood alcohol level were too high.

At any rate it’ll probably help the greenies show why vehicles shouldn’t be allowed in public forests.

I'd be surprised if the combined IQs break triple digits. And what's with the arm waving/ finger twisty thingys after they crawl out? They think what the did was something to be applauded? You'd have thought the first gomer out would have at least had sense enough to pull his pants up. I've seen guys do hard time for a lot less crack than he had on hand.

LOL!

+1 for getting it off the trail quickly!
- 5 for not belting in first.

Is "how you roll" what not to do? Was it just clowning? It would be nice if you made that clear first off, someone might get the wrong idea....

Someone told me about this so I thought I would respond. We put this CJ together in less than a week out of parts we had laying around. This was high speed off road race and the guys that went before us were fast, so we had to try and keep up. Now that CJ is sitting on 40's and ran 7 seconds in a hill and hole drag race.
Now we are running an XJ that is competing with v-8's. So the funny thing to me is you talking about my IQ. We had a great time, so why do you have to be a dick bite. This was a closed course on private property, with proper safety in place. If you would like to race me feel free to contact me at wilsonoffroad.com.
