Flopped th JK this weekend.

I made a local run to Spring Creek with a group of JK's this weekend and flopped the JK, nothing serious. Busted the rear fender flare and dented the rear quarter panel.

The resulting Damage.

Wow didn't turn out to cause too much damage. I assume your rockers caught most of the weight?

Good to hear no one got hurt and only "little" damage... I think you should have taken the opportunity to do a little maintenance underneath - seeing as you had clear access to the underbelly!

Nice thing about the fender flares being plastic! Just throw a new one on and go...

Nice pix!!!

Congrats Jeff

Pity about the rear panel, but could have been worse, especially considering you had the doors on.

Not too bad... all the weight was pretty much sitting on that corner.

I have pulled all the fenders off for now, until some decent tube fenders are released that will be able to handle a flop like that.

Don't know how I missed this thread. Glad it didn't turn out too bad. And with the "damage=upgrade" philosophy it will turn out to be a good thing.

Glad you are good to go dude!




DUH!!!!!.......
