I rolled my Heep over in Canada in 2001. We used the jack to flip it back over.
Jack it up on the roll bars.... pile a bunch of flat rocks next to jack. Lower jack so roll bars rest on rocks. Then put a few flat rocks under jack and repeat process until we had the Jeep at a good enough angle where we could tip it back over ourselves.
took a long time, but works!
94 YJ w/ stuff. All the work/money I put into it, and the comment I get most is my $20 mod: "Hand throttle?!? That's awesome."

He was very lucky, but it just goes to show you how much of a community that you get yourself in when you buy a jeep. People that he didnt even know spent the whole day into the night to get his jeep out and to make it out there to make sure that he was okay. It makes me happy that i got a jeep, jeepers are clearly the best kind of folks out there. Great job guys
This "Jeep thing" is like dating a really really hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which it somehow solves on its own only after you try a bunch of different things (and spend a bunch of money) to solve it... and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.
Wow what an article...That is a true jeep club. I would love to see something like this in JF maybe organized under the state or regional links since I would have no shot of helping in AZ when I live in NC. There used to be a club called Jeep Rescue .org. It was a group of volunteers across the us who would assist in SAR missions for local law enforcement agencies who did not have alot of resources. Sadly I think it went under due to fears of liability issues if someone did get hurt. It is a said day when people get discouraged to help due to folks who will sue your pants off your kids for trying to be a good American.
We would need to set up an alert system for varying degrees of help needed. Then an email or text message to go to responders phones and email accounts. As well as setting a CB or ham radio channel for member to meet up on once in the area and responding.
Just brainstorming...love the idea.. I pitched something similar to the Carolina Jeepsters after I saw the video on the net about jeepers using there vehicle in sever weather to get emergency workers into the hospitals. The answer I got was we don't need to do that because it never snows here. Then about a month ago it did snow and Raleigh was looking for people to drive.
Sort of reminds me of an ATV forum I was on several years ago. A guy was out on his several thousand acre ranch, and was bitten by a poisonous snake. He knew he didn't have time to drive out and to a hospital, and of course had no cell service. He did however have satellite internet connection and his laptop and made a post to the forum asking someone to call the area emergency responders and send them via helicopter. They made it and he got the help he needed.
