Hard Roll @ Rausch Creek

Think I finally did her in. Yes, it's "fixable", but might be
finally time to swap on that early bronco body.

Anyway, on with the pics. This pic kind of sums it up.
Not too many good days when your rig is 90 degrees to the ground
with a couple feet of air under it.

Carnage

2 flats with double beadlocks........



Turns out ground up rock got jambed between the rim and bead, even with
beadlock behind it.




Also bent one of the Staz rims in 2 places, which are about 1/4 thick
and had 1/2 rod welded around rim edge.






Cage did it's job though




My narrrowed hood took a beating too.



Pushed that whole side of the body down enough door latch
now misses by over an inch.



Don't think a windshield will ever go back in her either, as A-pillar is
pretty trashed.

Weird. I can still log in, but I've had direct ftp access
since way back when it was superford.

I can also see all my pics if I bring them up one by one,
they just won't show up in my post. Here are all
the pics from the roll.

This was posted by somebody 2 days ago

http://www.supermotors.net/forums/th...-problem#46865

So I changed all the pics to links.
Think I figured it out, some message boards
are blocking anything http, needs to be https

Wouldn't call it fun, but not as bad as you would think.
Felt about as violent as those new fast crazy roller coasters.
Some of those beat you up pretty good, especially side to side
like this was.

Seems the mobil sites still allow HTTP. Pretty sad if
HTTP will no longer be allowed, as I have thousands of
pics and 100's of how-to's on tons of sites that would now be
useless..............

I get 60-70,000 hits on my stuff every month..........

Sure did, glad I sort of overbuilt it with mostly 2".
I may just fix it up enough to get it around on the trails.

I just don't have time/desire to revamp the whole thing right now.
If I removed body, I would also be doing 4 link rear, new engine (already have), TB EFI, 3:1 case, move front axle forward, etc....

I had the same problem, had to get a SSL cert to get pics to display. At least that way you dont have to move pics to a different place, after all these years. Kinda lame but it is what it is. Since you have FTP access you might be able to set something up where you can install a cert yourself. Not sure, youd have to talk to someone over on SM since youd need help on their end to install it. i used https://www.sslforfree.com to get mine.


That was some hardcore roll, pretty crazy how the whole truck was in the air upside down

Sucks about the wheel, did you talk to Stazworks yet??

If you hook up a winch can the cage be brought back mostly straight? It would still need sections cut out and replaced but i wonder how bad it would be to do. I cant believe how far off the striker is, is that from the cage moving, the body, or both?

Staz said he can't really repair edge, but he could cut out center
and weld in new outer edge, for like $150. Might just buy a fifth
wheel, beat this one back into shape (more or less) for a spare.
It still holds air even as is.

Look at vents on cowl, you can see entire body shifted
down starting at about 3rd vent in, from pass side.

http://luxjo.supermotors.net/GREEN_D...729_065243.jpg

I might add sheet metal around windshield frame and
make it so it mounts like newer windshields, with lots of goo.
Only care that it seals, not how it looks. Will be
easier to replace next time it breaks.

Think I can adjust door. After looking closer, it is angled
downward since upper hinge was pushed aft.

Frame on that whole corner is not going to bend back.
And I also want to get tubes away from right edge of windshield.
It's always been too close on that side. I broke windshield @
big dogs last time by just banging cage into a tree, hard on the side.

Also thinking about air bags. Could put bump stops in front, take
out a rear leaf or two and run it lower unless I get hung up
or need to take one of those "I'm bored as heck" stupid
lines...............

Damn, didnt see the way the cowl bent. I like the idea of just cobbling the body to fit a windshield, thats what i had to do on the p/u cab since i racked the whole thing. Never gave me any problems.

Airbags up front would be cool to get that front-end down, as long as you do something about your oil pan clearance. Bent upper link for more clearance maybe??

well that was perfectly horrible. guess that's why you built a cage though and glad to see it did it's job and you're unscathed.
now you can make a Bronco-buggy.


fwiw, regular supermotors access is working. had a hiccup right after the change but somebody got on it fairly quickly over there. guess your ftp stuff didn't get included though. just a little more info that might help you finger that out.

It's the end of link mount on front diff that is the problem (can't really do anything sith it). Pat said to just put in some HD bump stops, that would be easy enough.

Yeah, cage worked. I rolled once before, but it was a slow motion
type deal just on roof, very mild. This ride was pretty brutal.

My ftp is fine, pics just won't show up here (but they do show up on
the mobil FSB site, apparantly), or the Fusion Sport board either.
Not sure if Supermotors would allow me some kind of SSL cert or not.

No chance for some kind of exemption from a known trusted site like Supermotors?

Ox's stuff is in a subdomain so the SSL cert wont carry over to his pics, or the other few guys still using the old FTP subdomains. Each subdomain needs its own cert. Ox can get one for free, but you need admin access to install it, in addition to the FTP access that he currently has. So as long as the SM admins are willing to help, it could be done. Considering Ox has probably the very first D60 swap ever documented online (as well as a bunch of other good articles), it would be a shame for his stuff to be 'lost'. I had to install one on my site for my pics to work again, and actually had to email my host to get info from them in order to 'install' (upload) the cert.

well I can't give you a "like" on that but once again... DAMN! we're just glad your safe man.
good luck with the SSL BS. I think @miesk5 might have a contact from Supermotors admin staff and you'd have better luck contacting direct as they don't answer their forum at all... in my experience.
