Bad day @ Bundy...

Watched a Cherokee roll down a hill @ Bundy today. Driver and passenger both ejected. Not sure how they are doing, but I really hope they are ok. Thoughts and prayers are with you guys.

Running stock seats and seatbelts in my YJ. I don't think I'm going back out there, dunes, etc. until I have a real cage, good seats, and some harnesses. Not worth it to have me or my son hurt or killed for a hobby. I always knew that there is a certain risk when wheelin', but seeing that made it reality. Hmmm...maybe time for a musclecar...

Not exactly sure what area, but towards Chicken Hill, Peastone HIll, etc. It was in an open scramble area.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully they're okay. But I don't think it should discourage you. Bundy Hill really isn't that dangerous. For 2 people to be ejected from a Cherokee, there had to have been some poor decision making involved. Learn from their mistakes.

Your reasoning is like saying "I won't drive the interstate because I seen a traffic accident".

I know, I know... Seeing that one just really shook me up. Just make me be more thoughtful of safety on the trail. Have a "new" frame in my garage right now and getting ready to start a build. Full cage and harnesses are definitely going into it.

So what happened? Were they going fast? Did they have their seat belts on?

Absolutely, I'm not saying skimp on safety. Put as much as possible in. Just remember that every driver controls his own destiny. Just cause one man F's up doesn't mean it's an unsafe trail for everyone.
And like was said, to get ejected, something else had to have been going on.
