Re: flopping can be fun

Only damage were flares being ripped off, some new scratches and gouges and a small dent or 2. Also the bracket of the mirrors lost all the trim plastic but the mirror mount is still sturdy. Finally my drivers Shrockbar, mounted on rusty rockers (haven't gotten around to installing frame mounts) rotated upward denting the rocker underneath but still prevented far greater damage.

Re: flopping can be fun

looks like what i did saturday! nice though!
mine was in a similar spotm fornt drivers tire went skyward with about 4 feet of air under the tire, and pivited the whole side into the bank, and it just kinda stayed there with the drivers rear about a foot off the ground. i just dropped the clutch and she kept crawling on its side, i crawled the high side higher and it brought down the drivers wheels and away it went. my exo cage absorbed it all.

Yep..with the help of a couple people pushing on the sides a little bit so I wasn't digging in I did manage to crawl the entire length of the ravine [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: flopping can be fun

That is the type of situation a panhard bar prevnts. Keeps the front axle from shifting and keeps you in the groove.
