Hope they were alright and i have no clue how you can roll on fins did they panic and gas it while turning the wheel to spin the jeep causing a roll ?
Sounds like a noob screw up to me.
No injuries but the Jeep was totalled
Attempted the steep incline and was just about to crest the top when the rear u-joint snapped. Brakes wouldn't hold it and slid backwards into the tree which caused it to slide sideways and ended up as you see here. Had the joint not snapped, they would have made it.
They were wheeling alone so we helped them get it on its wheels, I showed them how to clear the intake and cylinders of oil and after that it fired right up. I ended up towing them out since it couldn't climb very well with just front wheel drive.
I as quite impressed with their attitudes, as soon as it was on its wheels, they all scrambled to completely clean the trail of any trace of the rollover (there was quite a bit of broken pieces and crap form inside the spilled out.
There was no way we could leave without helping, it was nearly 100 degrees out.
