    Unhappy VIDEO : DON'T DO THAT AGAIN - Flopping a TJ on Poison Spider Mesa

    It's doesn't matter if you're new to the world of off roading or a long time seasoned veteran, rolling or flopping a Jeep is something that can happen to any one of us and more times than not, it's on a obstacle that we've done a hundred times before. On a recent trip to Moab, our good friend Dave Logan attempted to climb one such obstacle, a slick rock dome on the Poison Spider Mesa Trail and unfortunately, his number had finally come up. In this short clip, you'll get to see how he laid his TJ on it's side. Fortunately, everyone was okay and the only thing that really got hurt was a hard top and a bit of pride.

    I always tell my wife as a Jeeper it's not a question of "if" I roll the Jeep it's a question of "when"... Nevr done it But I've seen some of the best have it happen.

    Ouch. Glad everyone is okay. It did look like a graceful flop though.

    Dang, glad they were ok, looks like he almost saved it actually. Hard tops can be fixed much easier than people. Like you said a constant reminder of what can happen when your out there, you just never know

    Oh man, what a bummer. Glad to hear that everyone is okay and that there was minimal damage. From the video he didn't seem to see it coming. So many times you are looking at sky but I'm sure at some point he figured he was going over. Almost seemed like he was heavy in the back. Hope that is the last flop of the trip. Have fun and be safe out there.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
