It's the "Back way" to Crown King, AZ. I have run that trail a bunch of times and I am still trying to figure out how this guy ended up flopping, especially where he was.

How do you not pay attention on this road?

This is a winding mountainside road with several very steep drops of the side...

Hope everyone was Ok, maybe someone will learn how important it is to pay attention while driving!

Some steep drop offs on the back way to Crown King. Fun trail but it requires common sense and your attention.

From what I can see I am fairly surprised how the stock roll cage held up.

I noticed that as well, and am surprised it didn't crush down further.

The stock cage holds up pretty good. Before I started building mine I looked for as many photos as I could find of rolled jeeps and almost all of them were in tact with the center of the windshield pushed down taking the bulk of the damage.
The salvage sites like Copart.com are good places to see roll over damage.

Some build info here:

I was thinkin about just gettin one of those sport-cage things, just for a little added protection. I think it will be good enough. I don't do high-speed runs, just slow rock crawlin stuff. I had a simple, 4 point, bolt-in, in-cab store bought roll cage in my 88 Toyota truck and rolled it twice. It held up good, no Toyota "A" pillar crush down like usual.

Whether you do high speed offroad stuff or not, everyone drives on the highway. Never know if your gonna blow a tire or some jackass hits your rear quarter panel and causes you to roll. Can always benefit from extra cage.

Or Fab is rumored to have stop making theirs. Maybe you should take a ride up to their production facility and see if they have a spare laying around they want to get rid of.

I'm thinkin CLEAR 0 VIC (clear of hazards or body parts and no victims involved) maybe it's some sort of insurance thing or something to do with Law enforcement.

A few years ago, there was a thread on here of a JK that rolled over doing 70 MPH on the freeway somewhere in Florida. I was amazed at how well the toll cage held up.

The OP himself started the thread: he was so grateful to his Jeep as he survived with a few broken bones, if I recall correctly.

That was enough to convince me of the integrity and safety of the Jeep, and helped pull the trigger on getting one.

From the wife of the passenger posted on Book of faces

To let other L.E.O.'s who spot it know it's not an emergency (anymore) until it's removed.
