Are some rigs/drivers more prone?


Yes. I've seen lot of rigs roll/flop... suspension, center of gravity, and definitely drivers all play a part. I know a few people who can't drive worth a flip and use a bigger motor as their way to bounce up a trail or spot. Best thing is seat time. Knowing how your rig feels/ sounds/ looks when it's getting close to going and what to do when it acts like it. I ground my shifter gate in order to slam reverse from 1st and have used it several times.

Sort of a flop situation. The passenger side tire was wedged against a rock keeping it from going further over. The slider may have been on the ground as well.











And this one counts as a flop. If I had gone slower I don't think it would have gone over. I tried to let it roll out of it and turn away from the ditch which was a mistake. It just pulled me back in with the speed and when it caught the other side of the ditch the momentum sent me over.





Here are two successful drive outs with the rear end coming up.






I don't think this one counts, but it made for an interesting picture.





Here is a video from Choccolocco of a close call for a backflip. If it had popped back quicker of the ledge I was stuck on or if I gave it more gas it could have been interesting. This was the first time Katie had ever been 4wheeling with me.




every time I see this truck I like it more. It is really cool, man
