|There is not
much to this trail ride, except total destruction. Not 500 feet
from the start of the trail, my brother flipped his truck and crushed
the cab. Later, Grandpa ripped his steering shaft in half, and
then I overheated my Jeep after having it pull started several times due
to bad batteries. There are no pictures of the Jeeps, but here are
the pictures of Clint's truck after he flexed it out on a huge boulder
and went just a little too far.
Here is Clint's own detailed write-up of the flop:
"Pretty much i was just flexing it out on this rock, it kinda looked like a RTI ramp, but i was just idling up it, then the rear tire started to come up and right when i went to throw it in reverse it was already going over. When it hit i immediately crab walked out of it, and made sure my buddy was alright. Then i kicked out the front windshield and picked up all the shit, and rolled it back over, filled it up with tranny fluid, and started it right up. Used a high lift to get the cab moved up a bit so i could have some head room and then used a winch and a snatch block to do it some more. Kept on wheeling, then drove it home. When i got home i stripped out all of my stereo stuff out of it, took everything i had out, and got a lot of the glass out, and drove it around. It feels like a giant go-kart now."
