Awesome sticky. I hope to never need it but I am glad it's here if I do...
Great writeup! I have come close to rolling my rig once (both driver's side tires came off the grond then dropped back down). Fortunately, there were some experienced wheelers that came to the rescue. I agree that getting the vehicle out of a predicament can be a lot more hazardous.
Thanks for sharing!

Great article.... I was Lucky... once it rolled I shut the engine down....I was able to self recover with my winch and the Diesel engine started without issue... very Lucky. only damaged the rear passenger door... no windows brocken
I know you didn't go into detail on the actual flipping the Jeep back over, but could you list some safe attaching points to the Jeep to keep people from doing more damage. In your pic you're attached to your EVO sliders. If one does not have sliders to attach to, what would you recommend next? Is the factory roll cage strong enough or will it bend? Obviously attaching to the frame would be good, but can list other points you have used, or seen others use, when a good slider like EVO's isn't an option.
Great post, thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Thanks for the info; I made some typo repairs & will keep a copy in the toolbox. I hope I never have to use it but I would rather be safe then sorry.
Softeners for sharp edges should be used to reduce that risk.
Just for reference...
But, for wheeling, I'd keep some old 1/2" air hose cut up, with a longitudinal cut along the hose to fit over sharp edges. The best would be old fire hose, which might be hard to come by if you're not a fireman or work in a refinery or chemical company.
