How did you guys recover it?

Gary, your spotting on Hell's was incredible! I saw the video, never saw that line at the top, really smooth!

Brady, what trails didn't you do? Pretty nice run of trails this year, jealous...
If you click on the link under the pics I posted earlier there is as close to frame by frame of the roll as I could get. At the end of the album are some pics of the damage he sustained.

Recovery was fairly easy. He was at enough of a side angle that we just pushed it back over. After a once over on the damage and some pushing and pulling on the front clip he gave the starter a couple bumps to make sure it wasn't hydrolocked then fired it right up. Not one single puff of smoke. He then drove it up the bypass and to the top of the hill where he changed out the right rear tire (wheel bent?) and gave it a through inspection. He finished the trail (as far as we went) and other than some minor rubbing of the fan on the shroud when the body flexed he had no problems.

Yes indeed! And that's precisely what happened. I was leader that day. The driver was great during and after recovery, the folks on the run were superb in executing a perfect recovery. (For example, just after this photo was taken we assigned one participant to watch and keep the area below the vehicle clear of all people in case it rolled) Discussions were had and will happen again with that driver to make sure that does not happen in the future.

Incidentally, after this recovery we used dead branches to erase all off-trail tire tracks and footprints and smoothed out the sand (no crypto, just sand) so that you could barely tell anything had occurred. Again, the driver and folks on the trail all worked as a team and it was great to watch. Better if it had never happened though!

Yes, stick it in to get off the trail or get out, but to leave it like that before the event and then be signed up for hardcore trails does not make sense.

We go to great lengths to do tech inspections to make sure you do not end up with trucks that break on the trail and leave people stranded and cause inconvenience for other people. OK if you want to run like that on your own time and your own trails, but not when you are signed up for trails and leading them.

Sorry Tom, you might have gone by others advice, but I still think it was a bad call.
No worries, for what it is worth it was before CM started. I was planning on putting the new diff in Wednesday night but as luck has it it broke that day. I was to replace it on Monday but then the Whiskey came out so Tuesday but then well.............

The hub breaking was bad luck and or ??? I think the nuts came loose judging by the way they moved in the wheel hub.

Jon also drove it home to Albuquerque without incident.

Looks like between HDC folks all of the body panels are accounted for, save the windshield frame. He needs and early style windshield frame, if anyone has one. Rumors of a '71 at the YodaYard, but that's as much as I know there.

I offered to go check it out or pick it up for Jon (since I drive down to ABQ regularly as it is), but no word on whether it's real, or what kind of shape its in.

I kinda wish I'd gone to help with the recovery to learn something about recovery, but the dog and I did catch a nice nap in the truck while we were waiting on everyone. So, indeed
