Wow! I thought the jamboree's were mild family type events, shafts and tires are expected but rollovers in anything but a trail rig really suck.

Different jamborees have different personalities. Some (e.g. Catskills, Killington) have much more aggressive feel while others much milder. Even at more aggressive ones there will be some pretty moderate trails. Lots of good choices. Actually the only jamboree I witnessed a roll over at was last year's Coal Mountain at the new Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area. That's gonna be an awesome park once fully up and running. At Catskills last year I was almost a nose over roll. Back end started coming up in a bad way but was able to drive out of it enough to stop it.

I also was at the Catskills Jeep Jamboree this past weekend. It was a fantastic time with great weather. We did 12 step then "Shoots & Ladders." There is a new hill climb at the begininng of 12 Step that caused quite a bit of carnage. We had one jeep FLOP on the hill, another broke part of the front axle (the ears at the end of the axle) and a third pulled a bead and went flat - all on that hill. More than not had to be winched over the final ledge of that hill.

By the way, for the first time, Catskills JJ has gone to 33" minimum, rear lockers & winch required and they have cut out some of the beginner trails.

Killington started doing that last year also. IIRC they lost most of their beginner trails in Hurricane Irene.

You are correct. It was only medium and hard this year. The weather was awesome and the trails were great.

I don't think you have the proper approach angle on your Jeep for that rock.

Also, why is that trail guide holding onto that Fire Extinguisher? Was there a need?

The tanks was full and the vent valve on top is either faulty or disconnected. Fuel was leaking out of the top of the tank and onto the tail pipe. It caused a bit of excitement for awhile

Interesting. I was just reading this week the rules from a couple different racing organizations about venting, rollover valves, catch cans, locking dipsticks, etc. There is a safety aspect and an environmental aspect to it. To do it all right (gas, axles, transmission, TC, engine, power steering) is a lot of work and a decent amout of money. After being in a car that caught on fire in NORRA 1000 though I'm extra skittish about the risk. We had fuel spilling there on to the engine (mid-engine set up so right between driver and co-driver) after a fuel injector hose came loose. I don't think the heat alone of the exhaust lit it, but in our case the engine then started to miss and backfired and that did light it.
