Jeep accident in So. UT

Luckily everyone survived the acciden, hopefully the Jeep driver comes out of the hospital okay. It looks like the Jeep launched up and over the Mustang, then rolled.

Saw that on the news after the game tonight. The cage looks like it held up pretty well...end-over-end is a lot of impact force when it hits. I'm kind of surprised the hi-lift is still in place too.

I have been curious If the back if the LJ cage is weaker because of the longer span.. Guess not!

It probably held up better because it was a rubicon. And we all know that rubicon models have special powers. That explains why anything that comes out of a rubicon costs 10 times more.
