    It looks like he hit the brakes coming back down?? Or was that the automatic transmission blocking him on his way back down?

    I'm thinking he doesn't have a manual transmission or else if he would have just picked up the clutch it would have came back fine or a quick reverse would have done it too

    I'm glad everyone is OK, in the end, jeeps are replaceable but not any of us. Take care on the trails!

    Glad everyone is ok. Interesting to see that it looked his spare tire caught and prevented him from backing down.

    So what went wrong?

    Since I have not had a chance to enjoy Moab with a Jeep, I was very curious about this. I watched the movie several times and want to learn from the mistakes here.

    I see that there are multiple lines, correct? Would he have had the same trouble with a different line/entry point?

    Also, why not just slow down or stop when his left wheel was off the ground? From what I could tell and please correct me if I am wrong, but his suspension never got a chance to settle and because he just kept going without taking enough care to tell what the Jeep was telling him was wrong, his Jeep was out of control basically.

    Any Moab experts here to put in their two cents worth?

    This is a great training tool and should be viewed by everyone in the jeeping community. This shows how a simple hill can cause huge problems and help others avoid this type of role over, good that everyone is ok

    Wow glad everyone was ok. I haven't flopped yet but I can imagine how scary that would be from inside the jeep. These clips are good to watch so hopefully rookies, like myself, can possibly avoid.

    Shit like this is what makes me nervous about this hobby of ours. Can happen to anyone.

    I could hear eddie almost immediately yell put it in neutral. To have those instincts while driving would be awesome.

    Glad nobody was hurt and hopefully the damage wasn't too bad.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.
