Isn't the point of climbing an obstacle, NOT to roll?

For what they are, stock roll bars are good for the usual wheeling. A roll cage is what you need if you're crazy enough to want to roll...?

All about that unibody life.

Nobody ever wants to roll or plans to roll. But bad things happen. I've had a few too many close calls in my day to want to trust the stock roll bar personally. At TDS this past year I almost rolled twice in a matter of about 2 minutes. Scary enough to make me want to upgrade. Imalso had this little flop incident also at TDS a few years back. Whole jeep was resting on the roll bar. Luckily it was a gentle flop. But still.





And no I didn't plan on that happening. A buddy rolled into camp round midnight and said he wanted to do a quick shake down since he had just rebuilt his transfer case. I had found that notch a few hundred yards from camp that afternoon, so we went for a quick run. That was the result. We both got stuck. Had to hoof it back to camp to wake someone else up to come yank us out

^See that's where you need a heavier duty roll cage.

It may not be a jeep, but this happened on the drive back to camp, all the heavy wheeling had already been done.
