So I rolled My Wrangler a bit ago.

Post by Larry » Thu Jun 28, 2018 7:46 pm

Hey y'all, it's been awhile.

I about two weeks ago I rolled my Jeep Wrangler after a dude in a SUV cut me off. I put it through a fence then rolled it 4 times at ~65 MPH. The guy never stopped but I walked away with a couple bruises and a fractured clavicle. My insurance covered it because I "made and evasive maneuver to avoid an accident". I have some pics of the wreck if anybody wants to see them. Just letting y'all know to be extra careful out there. Enjoy the summer!

Glad to hear your ok and sorry to hear about your Jeep.

Bad drivers are everywhere, be safe, pay attention, and always drive defensively.

Here's some pics, it held up pretty well for what happened. Don't think I'd chance it again.

Looks like it'd be easy to rebuild.

Yikes - glad you escaped with just the collarbone from that (though ouch, none the less!), and your insurance actually is taking care of you like it should. Looking at those pictures... thank goodness for roll bars under the soft top! Take care of yourself.

Yeah, do to both axles being wrecked and the huge amount of frame damage, the insurance (USAA) called it a total loss. Luckily, they are giving me 2k more than what I paid for it, so I feel like I'm coming out on top. I hardly even remember it, it just happened so fast. What I do remember felt like the best roller coaster you've ever been on :icon_lol2: :icon_lol2: .

I too am glad you're okay Larry! I've seen cars people died in with less damage.

In your new vehicle be sure to run a dash cam. Good ones <$100.
