Buggy On Its Roof

Witnessing a rollover is almost as nerve-racking as being in the vehicle. The most important thing is to make sure the occupants are safe. Now is the time to keep your wits about you and before you attempt to right the rig, check for the following. First, make sure the vehicle has been placed in park (put in gear if it’s a manual) and the transfer case is still engaged. If the rig has an e-brake, use it. Once you have established that the drivelines are intact and nothing is broken or hanging down, clear the area of people and formulate a recovery plan. When possible, attach a tree strap to the rig and use a winch to slowly roll it back on all fours.
