My god!!!PREMEIR, WHAT HAPPEND!!, just comenting on how nice your truck was to my buddy the other day,!
My roll over try outs!
Alright, so hears the story. After we sat on the trail for a while because of break downs, we headed back to the parking lot. I wasn't done riding and neither was that blazer that was following me. So we were headed back out and then the editor of 4 wheelin magazine walked up to me and asked if he could go out with us because he wanted to get some pictures. So we said sure. He went over and ate some lunch then we headed out. The editor (i think his name is Kurt??) and his daughter rode with the "owner" of the park and his girlfriend in their wrangler. He took us up the creek where there were a few rocks to pose on. So anyways, we came to a spot where this big white dodge was sitting, that broke his steering selector and he had just tried to climb this big hill that they call the rock. There were probably 20 people hanging out there and with the editor of an off road magazine, i had to try it! So i did. Gave it a couple of shots and got close but never made it to the top. On the third try, i think, i tried another line and then the roll came over. I actually wasn't scared at all, it was kind of fun! lol I sat there for a few minutes while everyone took pics and videos then they turned me back over. The door doesn't look to bad, the window still goes up and down. It was acutally down when it happened, lucky it didn't break the glass. I think i can get it worked out pretty good.
So you think i qualify for the roll over posse?
And my only body damage. I got lucky cause i looked out the passenger side rear window while i was on my side and it was a mere inch or so from a huge rock!
Josh, you get a junior membership for that
And that's plenty for me! haha
So, how did you like the view Josh?
Yep Josh, I'd say so, plus bonus points for doing it while showing off for a mag photog, lol. That's actually about like mine did when I layed mine over, and I ended up with pretty similar damage too.
Well I am waiting cause I know with the way I do doughnuts in my X it is gonna end up on its side or top like my ranger.... I was told the last time we was driving thru a lake edge and cutting back out of it, I was sliding sideways and had the front tire off the ground about 6-8".... I didnt believe it for a while and then about 4 others told me they seen it too.... I guess the roll over posse is just for X's???? If it is for rangers then I guess I am a part of the posse? right? LOL Hell of a group, with hard entry rules... Rock on, better yet roll on....
View was pretty good, not something i would want to do every outing! They told me to stick my head out the window for the picture and i told them i couldn't so that's why i held my Ford Trucks hat out!
lol, i think josh should be VP, of the club!!lol
i was sad when i saw the post. i love your X... its the 1st one i ever really checked out on the site. maybe have some pictures in an upcomin mag? that would be cool! glad to seem little damage man...
Thanks man, didn't know i had a fan! haha
When we got back to the parking lot we were all kind of joking around and the owner of the place asked me, "So just how bad did you want in that magazne?" lol
awsome man... maybe you'll make it in

Wow, nice video
Well, i hope everyone in the posse was ok after their roll, and i hope members to come are ok too, it may be funny to be in the posse, but ppl could really get ####ed up in a roll, i lost 2 of my cousins and my aunt in a roll, and i hope never to lose anyone else whether it be a family member or one of you guys.
I want to nominate..........me.
I fell asslep on my home from work cruise set at 60 went in to medain,paniked over corrected rolled 6 times down I-10 and 50-60 foot embankment
Holy crap... glad you're ok!

Holy hell. Sounds like you're lucky to be alive.
A little bondo, some time on the frame rack and a color sand and she will be good as new
Glad your ok, dont do that ever again
it'll buff out....
INdeed, glad you didn't die and stuff. Death is the leading cause of hair loss.
nooooooo...ok maybe its a little worse than i thought, but still.....
So i didn't think my half lay over was enough to get into the clud, i had to do a full crush the roof roll. haha, luckily it stopped where it did or i would have ended up in the creek.
I tried a natures RTI ramp and went a little to far, the rear right tire came off the ground and i just kept going, lol.
So now i'm going to start a thread for some suggestions about chopping it and putting in a cage.
holy shit!!!!! we need a story! so did you roll off the cliff? i dont see anything around that looks like it would cause you to roll. obvousely you are ok, but bumps and bruses? wow......just wow....
