On the trail. There is an entrance to our local trails right from my buddies backyard. It was a new obstacle he cut on his property that I have been up a couple times no problem. Decided to go down it and fell off the line and went over on drivers side as backend slid around and then over the top landing on passengers side.

Yea was not in the least expecting it. Like you all said I'm happy we both got out relatively unscathed all things considered.. didn't really get a good look at the rig just flipped it back over and fired up fine. Think just need some atf and should be fine. Windshield is busted good but I'll be getting back over tomorrow and access the damage.

So I got back out there, started her up and let her warm up. Topped off the trans fluid and drove right on out. Did a walk around and checked everything else out, took the windshield off which was smashed up good and took a spin. Good to go and got her back home.

Only damage was the windshield. With it off can't even tell it went over.. So happy about that at least.

Forgot to even take an after pic once I got it out of the woods..

Only damage was the windshield frame and glass. Cage is straight from what I can tell, just the brackets that the windshield bolts up to bent a lil.

Just got another used windshield frame with glass locally, damn near mint condition for $50. Bolted right on everything lined up.

Still need to vacuum out all the broken glass and do a thorough once over before I take it back out on the trail, but it drove solid back to my house.

And my bad luck continues.. But after two and a half years of beating the rig up, I can't really complain as I haven't had any real breakage until recently..



Tried a steep rock face that I have crawled plenty of times before, but had some rain come in the night before, so didn't have the same traction. Tried a little more throttle, just one hop and snap.. Was able to just pull it and drive out and home in front wheel drive. Even did a few long hill climbs that were interesting with just the front tires spinning!
