Yep. Ill post some pics tomorrow as I left my phone at home today , but it rolled over about 1.5x and slid down the trail on its side about 10ft before stopping. Bent A LOT of sheet metal, destroyed the down tubes coming out of the cab, bent the passenger side rear spindle on the 14b and later on broke the axle shaft on that side.

We flipped it back over and took it back to camp. Removed the damaged sheet metal, filled up the trans again with some fresh fluid (some leaked out of the vent) and kept on rocking the rest of the weekend until the rear shaft broke. Im going to have to cut out and replace the down tubes and make a new passenger fender and bed side. Both doors still open and close just fine, but i think the cab is a little tweaked.

It was a pretty violent roll, but the cage work did its job and me and my Dad walked away without injury. I couldnt imaging what would have happened if i was in my previous rig. It would have hurt much worse.

Trip Report: Razorback Ramble at Superlift ORV in Hot Springs, AR.

2nd time in a row to make this event. Love it. Met up with a few local guys and wheeled all day friday and saturday before the axle shaft took me out in the afternoon. The park was awesome again and if it wasnt for it being 7.5hrs from my house, I would go more than once a year. Hoping to make it back to the Southern Cruiser Crawl in Oct(?) later this year.

As Austin posted last night, I rolled the truck on Ingrid's Revenge. I landed pretty hard on my passenger side bending the spindle and later breaking the shaft. The worst part is is that i actually made it up the climb, just had to reposition myself for the 2nd obstacle and ended up sliding back to the bottom. The roll was on my 2nd attempt. Its a tough climb when wet.

Some more pics.






Some pics of the stanced look once i got it back home.




Flexed out. I broke the axle shaft shortly after on this spot.


Carnage list was pretty good on this trip:
Bent 14B spindle
Broken pass. Side axle shaft
both c-pillars are going to get cut out and replaced
fender and bedside are toast. I think i can save the doors.
Cab seems to be shifted over a little or maybe its just bent from the roll.

Sucks that it happened but im glad neither my dad or I were hurt and the truck still worked just fine after the roll. I am a first gen body part hoarder, so it will ge getting new panels put on soon. Its part of the game. Cant wait for the next trip, whenever that may be.

I plan on fully enclosing where the center console is with some removable panels and applying some knock-off Dynamat to the backside to hopefully keep the interior temps down some. Its like a fucking hot box in the cab. I probably remove the rear glass as well to try and let some of it out.

testing
EDIT: Well that seemed to work. Photobucket can suck my dick so Ill have to go back and try to fix all the pics once i have some time. Using google photos and the IMG button to link the pics. Seems to work.

This is my new DD. Picked up a '93 Sc400 with 150k miles on it and am slowly fixing the small stuff on it. Its pretty nice for being 24 years old. The 1uz sounds great with a muffler delete.

Put some Nitto Invos on the rear of that bad boy. They are pretty sticky. We had them on Amy's G37S

Glad you got the Google photos to work. I'm still getting all of my pics down loaded and organized. Hope they don't have Photofucket AIDS.

Not gonna happen. I dont want to be replacing tires every 10k. I ordered some yokohamas for it. 255s for the width really fill out the wheel well. I want to drop it an inch or two and since these stock struts seems blown, im looking to upgrade. Its never ending. I cant leave well enough alone either.

Yep I hear you on that. The Car mods/upgrades are a little less involved than fixing the crawler at this point.

Yeah photobucket decided they arent allowing 3rd party hosting anymore unless i pay $400 per year to do so. Completely fucked so many build threads. I deleted my account and need to re-host them and link them. Going to take a while.

There is an extension for Chrome that seems to fix most PB linked images. It is in the big PB thread over in GCC.


I'm sure they'll get around to fucking it up again, but it is working for most images at the moment. Makes it a hell of a lot easier to rehost the images and fix the links than guessing what the pic was. Unless you already deleted everything of course
