    it was a slow roll and Brandon was fine. the only major damage was the front fender and the windshield broke. with th EFI it was idling on it's roof until he shut it down. rolled over and it fired right up. :D:punk::beer: drove it back to the shop, replaced the windshield and marker light and took it out for dinner! :4x4:

    Ditto! Glad your buddy is okay and thanks for sharing! Definitely adds some character to his ride, (LOL). Great endorsement for cage as well. What did he have on this rig? 6-point? 1-3/4" or 2" pipe?? Looks like it performed as intended!! :punk:
    BTW, was he following you Jon?? (LOL) :D

    Wow, what a shame. I'm just glad he didn't get hurt. It looks like the rollcage did what it was supposed to. Your buddy looks like he's in a better mood than I would be if I had rolled my Scout!

    Not sure the wall thickness or diameter, it was in there when I bought it. It goes to the frame in both front corners if the cab with the tie bar across the top, ties in the middle and behind the wheel wells with the "atari bar" above the driver area. We all did the ditch several times that day, he just was at an angle and the tire dropped in a hole and it went over. I have a video of it I'll try to link it if I can get it on youtube.
