Wife and I were out for a winter camp near Clinton. We headed home on Sunday and woke to a winter wonderland.
They had an ice storm on Friday, melted sat then refroze. Sunday we had about 10 inches of powder snow.
On hwy 97 20 k south of Clinton we hit a bump on a steep off camber hill. A little wobble grew to a full time skid. Slid to the far side of the road, hit the burm and the jeep launched into the air. Flipped without touching the side,down the ditch and on the roof.
My wife decided she never has to have a conversation hanging upside down again. A helping hand bent my door open and let us out.
Police ,ambulance, tow truck all on hand. We were told later 7 flips on that hill in 4 hours.
Went back up on Monday with my truck and camper,car hauler in tow. 12 hours later the jeep is home waiting for repairs.
I am just a little to sore to start yet!!! Anyone no of a hard top and doors for a good price???
