YXZ Rollover

Found a video of someone rolling over in a YXZ. It looks undamaged but it does make you take a second look at a lock cargo box.

It didn't look like that crazy of a manoeuvre that the driver made too which is a little concerning.

Good example of where a locked box would be helpful.

Looks like an inexperienced driver. Sliding to the left and is still turning to the left. Look at the video frame by frame. Driving it like it's a wave runner. Good thing they kept their limbs inside.

So they should have counter steered?

Indeed. Even looks like they could have had better control going down the hill. Lessons learned. Hopefully they aren't scared from the experience.

Aren't there things to prevent you from rolling over? I remember seeing two black triangular frames sticking out from either side of a SxS.

From what I've seen, rear fender is usually toast, front fender, depends on what you roll on, sand or rock.

Hard roll over usually bends the cage and sometimes the frame.

Wheel spacers, deeper offset wheels, and long travel suspension widens the stance and helps prevent rollovers. Beware of how the car behaves on the ground you're running, don't do what appears that this dune rollover driver did and crank the wheel like you're on a wave runner expecting the rear end to spin around, in this case it grabbed. I've seen other videos of rollovers where the driver cut throttle in a slide, the rear tires grab and wham!
