Here is an example of a bad situation:

I can't tell exactly what happened there.  And who is the idiot that has the baby in his arms down by the rolled buggy?

I've seen several videos where Jeeps flip over, freaks me out.  My truck isn't capable of getting in a position to flip (I think)
Curious, is it the wheel base, to high a lift, wrong line, freak accident?  Which model is (if any) "least likely " to flip .  I've never been in or drove any kind of Jeep, so I don't know how one handles compared to the other.  I'm sure there are many variables to my questions.

Thanks

Yes.
I would say freak accident is the least likely cause though. With enough experience and a good spotter, you shouldn't have anything unexpected happen

Or to much skinny pedal, a bounce and kick sideways

Hey guys,been away for a bit but I'm back.
When I flopped at Choccolocco Park I slid backwards and the left rear tire hit the corner of one of those water run off cut outs and it flipped me right over on my top. I laid over in the passenger seat

That could have ended worse but should serve as a good reminder to always have and escape plan when watching someone attempt an obstacle.
