Most likely a failed hill climb with a DII without CDL. Then he went to back down and the front brakes locked, causing a slide. Purely speculation of course

My DII would do that before the CDL. It was dangerous IMO.

Very dangerous. Leaving the truck in neutral helps a bunch.

You know what else is dangerous?
Ticking.

You know what is even more dangerous?
Ticking by standing on a tire.

You know what is even more dangerous than that?
Ticking by standing on a tire of a vehicle that's being recovered with a tow strap tied to the factory brushbar.

Was the recovery vehicle that "macked out" P38 with the night rider dildo on the top? Dumb and Dumber!

Speaking of stupid shit.

Here's what Joe Nosal aka "Badfysh" just did to his Disco2 in Anza Borrego:


Here is his account compliments of Greg.

I just fucking love this bit:

i was going fast and lost control of the vehicle, all other times that happened I was able to regain control and stop/slow the vehicle. this time not. hit a 1-2 foot mound sideways and flipped it. so again, you can just not go off roading if you don't want the hassles. it happens.


I think we all know that that there is always the potential for damage or even a roll when fourwheeling. However, there is only one way you get your truck to do a triple-lindy:
hauling ass.

I definitely keep the speed up on the trail. If I ate it in Mexico doing 40mph, I sure as hell wouldn't pass it off as "shit happens". There is only one response: "I was going too fast". It's no act of God when you wad it up because you lose control. I love how this asshole can't even be accountable when he crashes his truck. Speeding alone in an HOV lane, drinking on the trail, pulling a Colin McRae. It's all the same to Joe Nosal. None of it is his fault.

Nevermind that this happened in AB and I believe there is an offroad speed limit in the park of something like 25mph.

I believe it was an SCLR run.

Jack quoted the statement that I find absolutely amazing:

"I was going fast and lost control of the vehicle, ALL THE OTHER TIMES THAT HAPPENED I was able to regain control and stop/slow the vehicle".

I feel bad for his wife and for the dog.

His statement needs to be completed:

I'm prity sure he ment to write this:

Quote:
"Only thing I can say to avoid something like this is don't go off roading with me."

I wonder if he spent the time needed to pick up all the glass and plastic thrown from the rollover?

Sigh.

Do I spy a 3/4" shackle on the end of the strap, which happens to be attached to the bottom cross member of the factory brush guard.

Apparently common sense isn't one of the recovery items they brought with them.

Obviously that's for cooling, John. By turning the lights in that fashion, it funnels the air directly into the radiator. Kind of like ram air, but different.

Every time I see that picture I cringe with the image of that right front tire coming down, getting forward traction and that guys lower leg getting rolled under the front tire. Definitely resulting in a compound fracture at best or most likely an amputation (just guessing).
