rolled my rig today

Unread postby jopes » Sun Jun 15, 2008 12:04 pm

Kelly and I went out for a little ride this am, figured we would play around the river yet looking for more stuff to do when the boys get here. Went up a hill and I seen a open field but didn't turn left enough. We rolled completely over but the wall on the other side flopped us back on my side.

I turned into it and floored it, but since it was just a stupid dirt road I was only in 2wd. We were both wearing our harness's and are both ok except some sore muscles.

so far the list is pretty long what I fawked up.
-bent the front drive line
-exploded part of the PS bos apart along with the spool valve is not pushed out of the box = no steering
-snaped a 3/4" heim joint that was on the track bar
-snapped a TRE right at the jamb nut.

Got it flopped back on the wheels, put in a worn spare heim joint, check to see if the engine was hydrolocked from oil "was on the side for at least 45-60 minutes, drove it backwards enough to get a level playing field to weld up the tre to make it home.

On a good note, I completely rolled and ended up on the side and had to turn the engine off :) EFI is great. :grin:

guessI did something right when I built it. I checked it over and so far I have not found any bent tubes or stressed weld areas. :thumb:
