      I just crawled up it last time when it was dry. Exo held up good but both rear main leaf springs are bent the the frame is bent where the rear leaf spring attaches. The cage must be stronger then the explorer frame...

      I became a member this summer in my B2 at the local ohv trail. Flopped over due to poor footwork. Hit the brakes at an inopportune time and laid it into a hole. My roof rack caught all of the weight, i didnt break a window, or dent a panel, just bent the rack mounts and spilled cooler water all over the place. Sat on my side hanging by the seatbelt for a long time waiting for my group to flip me back over.

      Hopped out, let the oil drain out of the upper cylinders, and had a celabratory beer.

      Didn't see this thread, but here is three in action photos for membership.

      Happened on Fins and Things during Moab 2015.

      Short story on what happened, I goofed and let up going up an obstacle, rolled backwards and took a different view of the obstacle from different angles.

      3 tires are still on the ground. Hopefully no beer spilled, that would be alcohol abuse.

      Nice picture Birdy.

      I'm trying to determine whether the right rear is still in contact with the ground. At first look, this does not qualify, you need to try harder.

      Happened about 5 years ago right after the dana 30 sas, now it has a 44. I was cresting a hill and didn't see the washout until I was in it, only crushed in the fender, a little on the door enough so the window wouldn't roll down and broke the mirror off. I actually think that the front right tire wasn't touching dirt either, it was resting on the fender and the back right tire, maybe the back bumper a little. It was fun! They have since put an orange cone in front of the hole, which I still can't see when I'm coming up the hill.

      Question for y'all, does anyone know how many degrees of tilt it took before tipping over? Especially in the lifted explorers.

      Birdy, I have conference'd with the former President and we determine you still have 3 wheels touching and your driver seat bottom is not yet perpendicular (or beyond) to the normal ground plane. Also there is a lack of potential for further rotation to perpendicular (and beyond).

      Nice try though!

      That means membership denied :-(

      I agree it doesn't qualify, but gave us something to talk about!
