      I hereby nominate....myself!

      Ok this is my first visit to this thread or to the WHOOPS!!
      section of the board for that matter. Mine was more of a layover at Truckhaven on Thanksgiving last year. We were doing a night run going through some tight washes and ravines and misjudged my front drivers side tire placement, put me way off camber and over I went. Rick was kind enough to winch me back on all fours, resulting damage was damaged A-pillar on pass side, cracked windshield, crushed mirror and door on pass. side as well and serious dents to front of hood and pass side fender. Luckily I live less than an hour from T-haven and I was able to drive home...with every yahoo coming back from Galmis starring at me....lol.
      That was an expensive Thanksgiving! :mad:
      I'm sure you've all seen the pic already but it's on the T-haven info thread for those who haven't seen it.

      I got my truck back up and running about 4-5 months later and plan to do an exo-cage similar to RangerX's.
      Oh yeah, i've been in a few tippy situations that RangerX can back me up on, like one occasion where I was teetering into a tree and stuck my hand out and pushed myself back (don't do that!). Reflex action, I think everyone is tempted to do it. Anyways, thats my story...all those in favor say aye.

      I remember reading this thread about 3 months ago. I thought "I wonder when I am going to rollover?"

      Well... about two weeks ago, on my way to my girlfriend's house, My truck decided it wanted to play in the mud and snow. The roads were clear but freezing rain and a slight snow had been falling for about 2 hours. I filled the gastank and proceeded to the highway. While accelerating to the speed of the traffic, My back tires got into some slushy accumilation at the end of the ramp. I was doing about 50 mph when the back end came around. I tried to correct and over corrected. I couldn't physically turn the steering wheel fast enough to gain control again and just held on for the ride.

      I turned around about 190 to 200 degrees, slid through a hole across 3 lanes of traffic, and ended up on the passeger's side in the grassy median facing the wrong way. I saw head lights then grass through the windsheild, then everything stopped and I was just hanging in my seatbelt. The engine never even shut off. I turned off the lights and the engine, and got out with the aid of the people who saw the whole thing happen in front of them. Quite a show, so i heard! The best part is there is very little damge. Just compression dents and a ruined K&N air filter. The mirror didn't even break off. It just folded cleanly against the window, breaking my vent-visor. The mirror glass itself is cracked but it is still there and functional. The engine oil leaked into the air intake and airbox while it was on its side. But, thats it. 2 days later I was driving it around again.

      So i guess this is my personal nomination into the posse. It was quite a ride!

      We were cruisin down the wash at Truckhaven for TDS 2004. I was near last and figured i'd pass some rigs up. I fly past the zuk (Brian Kennedys friend), and catch up to dave (DB1), see a place to pass and take it, only to find that it leads me down another wash. I couldn't remember whether the washes joined back or not, and not wanting to loose them, I find my way out, and then found a path back into the correct wash. In any rational state I would have taken the path back down in low and 1st, since you'd have to keep a tire on the wall to keep from going over. . .but i didn't take time to examine it, and continued pushing the go pedal since I could hear the zuk coming down the wash. . .you can see him pass a few frames before the camera & mirror hit the wall.

      Damage? Dang. . I knew i forgot something :p

      Ok, so I got some damage, but it is masked by the fact that it is in the same spot as my body damage from the Jan. run. Rear quarter panel is pushed in again, this time enough to break the seal between body and window (which was a very convenient 'drain' as all the water from the ice chest fell onto the window, and then ran out, rather than filling up the cargo area. The rear glass is scratched in a dozen places, but still in one piece. :cool: Side mirror broke, but doesn't apear to have done any body damage. Theres a nice dent in the front fender, above the light, and the front marker lamp is cracked

      Of course then you would modify the back to show your rollover(s) :D

      Man, looks like you took quite a thrashing...but more importantly, could you have your photographer zoom in on those 2 chicks on the poster in the background....lol j/k!
      So was that the extent of your injuries and how did it happen exactly?

      there is the thread on my rollover. I broke my nose, and had basically first degree burns all over my face. besides that i was unscathed. ive got pics of my truck on my computer now, but the new server doesnt seem to want to upload any photos. as soon as its fired back up again, ill get the truck photos up. The thread above explains how it happened.

      VOTE FOR FRED, VP OF THE ROLLOVER POSSE!

      EDIT: got my pics up of my truck
      check out the sticker that i put on the instrument panel about 2 months ago. i should have taken my own advice.

      My Application

      Story First ;) Three of us were out going to do a little light wheeling as my 2 friends had yet to have their trucks offroad and I have yet to change the front gear to match the rear limiting me to 2 wheel drive :( After exploring a couple of challenging trails (at least in 2wd) we started on a 3rd. After several tight fits between trees we came to the top of a hill the sweep down and back up looking to be a challenge for traction but no obstacles. Jeff went first in his Explorer, then me and last my friend in his F150. As we came to the top of the trail (with no issues) Jeff had made a turn to check and see if it was a split in the trail. He had turned around to come back toward me, and I decided to back next to him to talk window to window. Thats when I discovered a gully I didn't notice until too late :( My son, dog and I are fine! So onto the picks:

      The damage doesn't look that bad Siekyre, you're pretty lucky.

      This is one club I hope I never am in.
