That's suicide.

My sister rolled a Geo Tracker with little more then a bump from behind while coming off the highway on a sliproad.

Re: Lift Kits (trackers)....

none, 0 inches, the thing was bone stock, she was coming off a bridge ( wasn't going inccredibly fast.) she's a cautious person, and that night she was the designated driver, some guy was tailgating right on her ass, as she used the sliproad to get off the bridge to drive the 5 drunk people home (It was overloaded) she slowed down, and the guy behind didn't. It wasn't a wet day, and she wasn't driving like a maniac (even though she does now, (she beat an ambulance to the airport during rush hour. took her 13 min for a 45 min trip, took the ambulance 25min.))
anyways dry road, he tapped the back bumper, and the tracker went up on the front left wheel (one wheel on the ground) and rolled over that wheel like a pivot point. The whole thing then tumbled and rolled about 2-3 times, and eventually stoped upside down along the divider, about 3ft from going over the edge down a grass embancment.
No injuries, (except a pack of cigarettes which got crushed)
I saw the tracker afterwards, and it was a total wreck, the whole thing was twisted, and the rollbar wasn't worth ****e, I belive the only reason no one was crushed was because of the violent way they had rolled, there was never a ton of pressure on the roll bar.

Personally I think the Geo-Tracker, and the Sidekick are all deathtraps. (and the Geo-Metro.)

What are the hard tops on those made out of? cause if its anything like a Jeep, that just some more weight abover the center of gravity. (my sister had a soft top.)
