    That is the main thing. Everyone is alright. The blazer was pretty thrashed, but sheetmetal can be replaced, lives can't. How did the rest of the trip home go? Have you had a chance to see how bad it is? The body is shot, but how about the drivetrain?

    I want to say anytime but you and I wouldn't like that /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif But I don't mind at all to help you or anyone else out
    I glad to hear your alright for the most part. I was hoping to have some pic's up for everyone today but my puter only wants to let me see 16 bit color and that won't do.
    So when I get some pic's up and running I'll let you know. By the way when is that yard sale going to be??? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yup , the body's gonzod on it but the drivetrain is still in great shape the only thing I wasted on that was the rear driveshaft.
    As for the yard sale , I think all the 1ton stuff & the motor Ill pull and put into another blazer. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I wish I would gotten a good pic of the rock he was on, That thing would not let go, Tim had to use a High lift on it just to help out the winch. I'll bet that rock was at lest 4ft tall /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The steering wheel made it through the roll, but not through the TJ rage after the fact. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif It was still somewhat connected until the #$%##@!%@#% after the roll happened. I would say that rock is more than 4'. I was able to stand a 4' Hi-lift up straight under the gas tank skid plate to jack the rear diff up off the rock. Shawn's 12000lb winch would pull till it was dragging the Rodent up the hill with the brakes locked and TJ's K-5 wouldn't budge.
    And to add to the fun Mark had busted his front hub completely off his XJ when he rolled TJ back over so he was hi centered on his rear diff with only 2WD. But one day we will all look back and laugh, of course it will take TJ more days than the rest of us I am sure. I know my bed looked wonderful at 8:30 this morning when I got home. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I'm just glad you're okay TJ. I'm really sorry to see your K5 like that last night. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Lisa took a "few" pics that can be seen here:

    I'll keep a look out for another K5. Let me know if you need a hand with anything. I have an engine hoist you can borrow if you need to pull that engine.

    I wanted to say thanks to Eric for helping me get my shock mount fixed and for borrowing his tools.

    TJ, glad you were not hurt, looks like most of the scratches should buff out. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    And since no one else has asked, what the hell were you doing starting that trail in the middle of winter that late at night? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    It looks to be right in the same general area as we were last night. There is a big boulder right in the middle of the road. Thankfully there was trees to catch TJ's truck or it would have been alot worse.

    Sorry to hear that man. I know how you feel. I rolled my Jimmy 6 times about a year and a half ago.
