Yeah. Remember to look up when you are driving in that type of country. When I lived out west many years ago, it was common to see good size rocks fall after being displaced by vehicles above.

The guy got out of the jeep and the brake didn't hold, over it went with her in it.

This trail was closed when I was up there, still had some snow on it.

I thought Jeeps had better roll bars than that.

Factory roll bars work descent for a simple roll. They don't hold up well to falling off a mountain
