Rolling an XJ

Who's ever rolled their XJ before? I get **** from my buddy with a CJ-7 all the time cause he's got the stock roll bar and I got nothing but a unibody to keep me from getting flattened. How well can these things stand up to rolling?

Your buddy doesn't have much to brag about with a stock CJ7 roll bar. I wouldn't want to roll the CJ either....

You have 4 structural pillars, he has one. I'd rather roll an XJ over a CJ any day.

A roll cage is on my 24-36 month plan. It only makes sense for longterm safety as I evolve Scampy.

I don't put myself in the position right now, but I do sometimes get the tingles as I pivot and tilt.
