    The roll of, or almost of doom

    So I'm starting this thread to find out who exactly is part of this club. Any photos would be very nice to see or even videos if you have any. The reason i am starting this thread is because i have had a second roll of almost doom on this past Saturday. Lets try to just keep this thread on topic, thank you. Its one of those clubs you don't want to me apart of lol but here is how i became a member.

    my first roll of doom in the past summer

    tJaymann welcomed me to this club, his video belongs to him, so thank you for making it up

    and my most recent roll of almost doom


    So i hope to hear and maybe see alot of some interesting stories. Ow and just to let you all know, both the rolls, was on the same mt. Bad luck hill.

    lol ya, well lets just say that the recording of what i was saying, isn't presentable lol. I really didn't think it was goin to be saved. I was getting ready in my mind to start picking up pieces and then boom, it was saved by the bush. I was like :O OMG OMG OMG. I didn't believe it. I was in shock for like half an hour for the fact on how it was saved and that it got saved.

    i know videos distort the actual slope - must be steeper than it looks - glad you and your summit are safe!

    I just had one of those almost experiences, was going up the side of a hill which angled down, with a 25' sheer cliff face and it tipped up on 2 wheels about to roll which would have put it over the cliff landing onto rocks, luckily enough it stayed put and didnt roll and I was able to reverse out, turn it around and come down. Close!

    Great vids! I'm always amazed when I take a huge spill and nothing happens to the truck. My latest lack of talent killed my proline roof rack but all in all the truck hangs tough.. Cant wait to see more vids..
    Heres a similar thread I had last year.

    Well this was not mountain side but close to the tallest hill in Alabama. Was not exactly an accident, but was still pretty fun.

    its a good idea but totally takes away the thrill factor. rolling to its death is a consequence of taking a sketchy line and if you make it your that much happier. just my opinion.. i love the thrill.. my summit is my anti drug... it is a good idea though.
    custom summit crawler parts lol
