Rolled over CHerokee

I just read this on the off road site I belong to. I thought I would let you all see it for yourself.

Don't worry everyone is ok. This happened at Silver Lake Sand Dunes, they are located along Lake Michigan near Mears Michigan.

I heard Flamesfearme is on a ROLL - Great Lakes 4x4

The link has some great photos. I guess being this guy did this on Friday he had a crappy holiday weekend.

I hate to say it, but if your going to be going off road and spend a bunch of money on an off road suspension, spend a little extra money and put a cage and good harness' inside the vehicle. Even a minor rollover could be bad. A cage might not have prevented any damage to that Jeep, BUT the roof wouldn't have caved in as far as it did.

I aggree with you. Then again also driving experince does help as well. From what I have heard, this guy launched off the hill at the dunes they call test hill. I guess this weekend the Dunes were peaked pretty good so when he launched off the dune there was nothing to land on until he started to go down. There for he went end over end.

They did say that speed and alcohol was not a factor in this crash but stupidity was a big factor.

I have a friend from up in Michigan and I've heard him talk about TEST HILL and the dunes all the time. He doesn't know anything about this Alabama mud but he's all about the sand man, he'll say "man lets go 2 traking"

CJ I know about your mud in BAMA, I know about real sand as in Glamis Cali, I know about the rocks of the Arizona Desert or the High Desert of Cali, I wheeled all over the place. But here in Michigan Silver Lake Sand Dunes causes most injury to humans, buggies, atv's, bikes, or any other ORV out there. I have been a victim of the dunes myself. But Test Hill is nothing compared to other places I have rode. But people in Michigan that go there don't understand or have the experince to drive or ride in soft sand the dunes has. Two Trackin you wanna go come on up we will go in our PSD's.

That green jeep looked like a really nasty wreck.. hope no one was hurt.

I've never spent much time off road, but one of the rules I always heard was to walk your path ahead of time, especially if you've gotta climb a hill. That way you don't end up with any surprises.
