OK that video was great. So lets break it down. I'm curious if the TOY was locked but mostly how they compare to jeeps in the sway bar dept. At first I figured acceleration caused it but, watching in slomo there was some right front to left rear rocking even before you started slipping/backing up which then led to the flip. Was it turning the wheel with those big tires that pushed it over once the left rear was hanging?

from what i can see in the clips, justin was at the tip point at the very top before he backed down.

he got there when his driver side rear tire shifted to the passenger side in the groove he was climbing up.

the actual tip happened when he backed down on the 'new' shift line and that rear driver tire contacted the ground. with the speed of the reverse, the heavy front end still had inertia, so it bounced with the shocks and kept going, a la flipping off flipper.

i doubt he could have come down any slower, so that's why i say he was at the tipping point before he even reversed. the only way out that i can see from video would have been not going anywhere and await a strap up front to pull through.

i don't believe sway bars would have had any bearing on this. it was all heavy front weight and shifted bad line on the rear driver tire. at that point, newton had already owned justin and the toyota.

I agree...looked like he was rocking when he first got to the top and should have strapped then. Or maybe added a heavy passenger. Just trying to learn my lines...

My jeep is higher than your jeep so they will always take the easier path to get in.
