Todd, is it just me, or do Toys *LIKE* laying on the passenger side? :confused:

Did this 3 hours ago: :)



This one's from labor day weekend:


Anyway, it's a little slow in here, and this qualifies (barely) for tech, so I thought I'd share. :cool:

That last pic is not axle hill. ;)

I went right freaking up axle hill. I don't really understand how Phil managed to roll his Toy there. Guess I'd have to go see if it's changed or something next time I'm in S-town.

The top pic in this thread? The reason I rolled is because I've been across thist "bunny-hill" obstacle too many times. All I had to do was get out and see what line to put my tires on to keep one from dropping into that hole, and drive down. Of couse, I was in this same spot two weeks ago, so I was certain I knew exactly where to go. At least I drove right out of this one. :shaking:

Creepy thing is, both of these flops dented the EXACT same spot on the right fender, at the top-rear corner of the tire opening. Whatever, at least I didn't lose a door. I'm long past caring about beating up fenders.

Evan, don't you think its about time to get a lil protection before it goes more than on the side? If you need a hand just let me know. I reacon its about time to start the transition from the other rig to a Toy.:rolleyes:

Chris, I wholeheartedly agree with you that it's time for a cage. As soon as I buy a little car to drive daily, the roof, windshield, and all the sheetmetal behind the front seats is getting lost in a massive sawzall orgy. Then it's getting a flatbed and a beefy cage run straight to the frame. :)

I'm not gonna be happy until I hear people bitch about chopping up a "prefectly good 4runner". :flipoff2:

See that little word underneath your username to the left? That's what I'm calling you right now. :flipoff2:

But yeah, I'd love the chance (and a rig worthy) of wheelin with the boys out west. Gotta take what you can get, though.

Yup. Mine's been on the passenger door five times--the only times I flop onto the driver door, either it's a brief ding on the way to the roof, or just 'cause I can't drive (but rollover isn't involved at all). Looking back on it, I think it's an across-the-board thing--I'm not the only one who's put my truck right-side-down, but nobody else has put it left-side-down at all.

I'd make a suggestion that the trucks are off-balance 'cause of the gas tank on the right, but I've laid it over since moving mine, too. :)

It is kinda a strange coincidence that the majority of Toyotas you see on their side are on the right. Like Scott said it would be understandable that the gas tank in stock form might cause this. But if the tank is moved to the center with a cell or aother method it would rule this out. We need a sticker like this:

I think its because subconciously, you dont want to roll it toward your side, and when your truck leans with you looking at the ground, you dont take it as far, because it feels like a LOT more than it is. Personally, my truck has flopped onto the drivers side twice, w00t! :flipoff2:

That was the same way mine flops also:D always to the right;) When you order that sticker put me inline for one:D

Ding Ding, I think the newbie got it! I am a lot more conscious of what I am doing when I'm staring at the ground compared to the sky (especially with my extra wide stance adn low COG). Twice on the passenger side, none on the driver's. My roll a couple weeks ago went over the passenger side first, and then belly up in a creek, leaving me blowing bubbles.
