It looks like an "About to fail..." moment. Based on the fact that the driver is looking out his window at the rear of the Jeep, I'm thinking he might be tied down in the front. Personally my first instinct when I felt myself falling backwards wouldn't be to stick my head out the side. Looks like maybe he went to climb the rock in front, went up at too steep of an angle and started to lean back. Also, the position that the picture was taken from makes it very hard to determine the angle that the Jeep is really at, he may not be quite as vertical as it looks, although it does look pretty bad.

Yeah, someone was about to have a real bad day. Looks like he came up to the lip too fast and as the Jeep went up, the rear wheel spin caused it to come over backwards. But I could be wrong.

Guess you don't see much rock crawling in NYC.

Pretty common for a jeep to torque over backward because of the short wheelbase. Some guys put a small atv style winch on the front axle to compress the springs in that situation.

See? Should've been running nitrogen in them tires. I also gained 5hp and 7ft/lbs of torque by switching from air.

That's when you crank it into reverse and tap the throttle a little.

Better than doing what that guy did in the video.

I think he is past vertical. Not looking out the window but falling due to gravity. Too steep. This actually looks pretty simple. Big lift short wheel base steep hill big flop.

I think all his blinker fluid ran to the rear causing the balance to shift back too far.
