Muck Stuck

The only thing Arthur Dudzinski told us about this pic: "That wasn't supposed to happen."

Biggest Oops Ever

This epic fail came courtesy of Jennifer Cilento, who said it was her husband's "biggest oopsie ever." It all started with them on a trail in Peacock Flats in Hawaii with the Oahu Jeepers. "Our back wheel started to slip and Chris slammed it into Reverse to keep us from going end over end. We just rolled back nice and slow and gently tipped over." Until that moment, Jennifer never liked four-wheeling. After that moment, Jennifer liked four-wheeling.

Drowned M-715

Mike Hold of Mesa, Arizona, and his Jeep buddies came across what he called a "water tank" in the middle of the Arizona desert. "These tanks are formed to retain water for livestock and the many desert critters. One of our group figured the water was not too deep and it would be fun to run through it."

Not His First One of These

Bill Adelmann of Temecula, California, is an experienced wheeler—and an experienced roller. He took down his Nissan Pathfinder long before his '00 TJ did this on Sledge Hammer in Johnson Valley, California. As he recapped, "My spotter started giving me directions, and as the hood line covered him, I thought (incorrectly) I still could hear his directions over the engine/tire noise, so I kept trying to 'crawl up. The rapidly approaching rock wall on the left caught me by surprise (yes, it did jump out at me from nowhere!), and all I had chance to do was yell at the kids in the back, 'Rollover!'" As it turns out, "We always start our 4x4 runs with rollover drills. They responded automatically by keeping their heads down and arms in."
