Ahh that was you. Kudos for using it like it was made. Thanks for the advice.As a passenger in a rolled FJ, I got a mild concussion, some minor cuts and bruises, and a sore neck. Your results may vary. We rolled down a hill three times before landing on the wheels, so I would say that the FJ is pretty safe. I have thought about a roll cage, but if my head hit that, even padded, I probably would have been worse off.
In my experience, an off road type seat with a safety harness would have kept me planted in my seat and not flying into the roof. :clap:
Shhh, I did not do that, but I might have photos! lol, or doing donuts in a muddy field with rechless abandon (you know who you are!).
It's an option for 07's08's have roll sensing curtain air bags i believe. 07's do not. If you are considering a roll cage, you would need to know how to make the cage around the curtain airbags, if you have them. Check air2air's build up, he had a roll cage built. I think you would be okay with out it though.
I know it is better safe then sorry, but i personally wouldn't do anything that would put me close to rolling with children in the FJ. (i would make them get out for that part )
I've had my (3") lifted FJC at this angle and it didn't roll - felt very "tippy" but drove out of it. Notice that the meter is off scale! I had trail mates spot me with a line before I drove out but it didn't really need it.I have always wondered what the tipping angle is, although I am sure it depends on the situation, I had my inclometer ?? pinned at 30, and kept going a bit, very scary but it handled it,
