finished installing dual cases and went playing around the house... Drove up on a mulch pile over the top and then rolled to the bottom.

2 rolls landed on the side all is good.

the recovery process involved pulling it enough to have all 4 on the ground then driving out.

this is where taken from the spot where the roll started showing the drop it rolled down

Paintless dent repair and some scratch x followed by cleaner wax followed by a hard compound wax and you wont even notice it was ever there... That looks like more of a scuff than a dent but the pictures can be deceiving.
I recommend this! Laughing


I am glad everything was ok. I look forward to one day having my own dedicated off road vehicle. If that happened to the FJ I am pretty sure my wife would beat the "oops" out of me.

crap happens all the time...

the doubler adapter is from trail gear. the crossmember is from budbuilt. the driveshafts are made in the driveway.

As for the roll had it not been geared so stinking low i probably could have driven out of the roll. Problem was that truck has never been able to climb up and over the front side of that mulch pile but this time it idled right up and over the pile and the back side caved in on the downhill side and over it went.

As soon as I felt the truck go 90* I brace on the transmission tunnel and jumped clear to the uphill side. Got to watch my truck roll to the bottom.

on a second note I do need a clean first or second gen frame for cheap

On a semi-related note: That is a LOT of mulch!

Did you bend the frame or did you already need the frame before this detour?

Bent the frame... One frame rail hit a tree on the way down. Must have hit pretty hard.

I bet the fact the weight is all up front (bed missing) contributed to the roll. I can't help but notice the driver seat is actually hanging out of the door!! LOL! You are fearless!

Glad you escaped unharmed, sorry the truck did not.

I have saying: A wise man fixes his brakes before he makes it go faster, I think I should add, bolts in drivers seat & seat belts & uses them. LOL But seriously glad you were able to get out in time. Next order of business, bolting in seats & belts. We don't want to lose any of our NCFJ members.

The seats were unhooked because I was building a roll cage and have buckets with 5 point harnesses going in next weekend and I was Judy testing the doublet set up. When it stayed over I Judy bailed out knowing there truck is replaceable and IM not. Let the trick go and it can be mended.

I think your driver seat may need to be reenforced....did it pull the bolts through the floor?
