_____ Yes _______ No _______ Maybe

IMO it all depends. If I think I might lose the van because I can't cross the obstacle safely I generally do what I can to turn around or backup. I have a couple of clinometers on the dash and avoid anything over 28 degree side tilt but you still have to factor in the downward angle not just the side to side tilt. It's those "I didn't expect that to happen" moments that can get you in trouble. Some times the sway bar disconnects are better left on but for the most part on trails like that I leave them off. I drove over a wash out once and never even felt the drop but it was a level trail. The vans front wheel dropped into the hole but the rear glided over it and the van stayed level the whole way. On a different trip I had to crawl over a rock to get past a downed tree and the van slipped off the rock. Put a dent in the body and crushed the tail pipe. I didn't have a choice to backup...a lousy feeling to say the least but I never thought it would have fallen off like it did. Oops.



Hard to say about this rollover picture on what really happened in this thread. Still you'd be surprised what these vans can take on. Here is a picture of CalClimber's (Craig) wife Cindy spotting a similar situation where we had to climb over a ledge that dropped off in an steep decent. It was sure fun but was kept us on out toes.

After several weeks of the group talking about this rollover/recovery, there's gotta be several hundred of us following this thread and dying to see how it actually got resolved/solved.





It lets me save to Facebook but not link sorry.

^^^ you can’t right click the vid on fb and copy the url?

I would think all bob would need to do is come to this thread and answer questions that folks had 1 post at a time. By the time he answered questions he would have enough time spent here that he could post pix without any issues.

Either way that’s awesome he’s willing to come to this forum and educate us a little!

Has it been confirmed that the location was Flint Road? I've done that in my '07 RB SMB, ascending. Doable, but be carefull. Here's a view of that area.

So far, Bob has been unable to post anything. He signed up, but has yet to receive a confirmation email. I've sent a note by way of the "contact us" tab, but I have not gotten a reply yet. I suppose all we can do now is wait.

I've considered that, but would prefer that he is able to become a contributing member here. I'm sure that will happen soon, I've never heard of anyone else having this problem.

I didn't even know the Confirmation E-mail was a thing here. I signed up long ago, and don't remember that, or if it even existed when I signed up. Yet we get the occasional spammer getting an account. FWIW, I do not see new members account requests.
