BINGO.

Moral: If you want to roll an m151...you can prob do it. ALSO, if you wanted to roll an APC or a Deuce, or a Porche...you prob could roll those also. Commen sense trumps all.

The arm lying in the road afterwards on that vid is unsettling, indeed...noticed the occupants got thrashed around a lot, but never "crushed" under the flipping vehicle. Makes me wonder if I should stop wearing my lap belt on the road and take my chances with being ejected clear...I'm sure you will disagree, TJ.

My supervisor at work (a French Canadian, formerly with the Canadian Air Force) told me how he rolled an A2 in Canada years ago in the winter...he says he will show me pics. I'll have to ask him again.

I already drive my M151 VERY carefully, and now I will be even moreso.

You just have to respect and understand these things, and drive them with maturity and diligence. Like anything, I guess.

My last "hobby car" was a '65 Porsche 911. Talk about predictably unpredictable...the ass end of that thing came around me twice, with no warning. But I was driving it like a jackass. I have a lot of VW experience, too - HTN and ohiomgman are correct!

Post revival! Since I own an impostor, i'm considering something other than the stock steelies for wheels.

Still waiting to get the Titan back to my house so I googled "m151 off road" and saw these wheels and love them. Any ideas if these are stockers off of something else? The ones on the blue jeep look like old CJ wheels to me.
