    man i had my first roll ovewr today. Happy easter man. whoa what a trip. no one got hurt and it was a balst. truck got pulled back over and i drove it home. lots of tastie bugs on the way. the factory roll bar works and now has a bit of a dip to it. Good a safe wheeling man. and Happy Easter.

    Hey Stu, nobody hurt? I hope you snapped a few pics...[​IMG] my truck has also been rolled (not by me...so far)
    I hope your damage wasn't too bad either, it always amazes me how tough these trucks are![​IMG]

    Wow Stu, glad you're okay! Didnt know you were back. I havent heard from you in a looooong time. Where'd you go wheeling? If you need a top,lemme know. I have a spare.
    Sounds like you broke a windshield too. I bought a brand new one from National on 22nd between Swan and Columbus near the Autozone for 100 bucks.

    i had my top off at the time so its still in somewhat good shape. and yeah i busted my windshield about down to the dash. whiped out my whole front passenger side. door wont open. bent my 1/4 inch channel steel bear bumper. know anywhere i can get my hand on a new body let me know. i still got some checking over to do on the thing. started it up tonight to move it and it started to smoke from soe where. i think its just fluid that spilled out. i have a few ideas on what to do with it but always open to more.

    Where did you roll it over? Talk to Jay SInaclair at Tucson Differential. Its off of 22nd near Swan. Nice guy. I saw a blazer body there in his yard I don't know what year and didnt look at the condition. Good luck..
