Here's mine:



Damage after roll (slow speed) consisted of the hood, fenders (straightened in picture), windshield frame, rear quarter and several cracks in the hardtop as well as a broken window. Roll bar was not damaged in any way:

no pics of mine, but I just flopped the ol' XJ on the pass side on the uphill side of a really off camber trail... No real "character" to be had by such a sissy flop. Just some scuffs and a broke mirrir, and windshield.

Soft flop at WITC...

Hood would have been fine if it weren't for that tree, but that tree kept me from going on my roof...







Ironic eh?






The flop actually messed up my passenger fender (that was already bent from a tree) such that I was able to straighten it BETTER. The hood was straightened a bit. Found a cowl and windshield frame in my Jeep's body color at local yards.

I NOW have a hood, newer style cowl, and fender that need paint, but they were all FREE! WOOT! Just gotta paint em now.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

This is my friends TJ after he rolled it 5 times. He was thrown out on the second roll. I talked to him a week ago (beat up pretty bad, having shoulder surgery), and he definitely is very lucky! But the pic goes to show how well an aftermarket cage can protect you vs. stock. Looking at other pics from the wreck and seeing the damage, a stock cage would have flattened out like a paper clip.

Don't tell me you flopped it so that people could read the windshield sticker?
