This may be one of the best first posts, EVER!

Ok, seriously, that's a bummer about your truck, man. How about some more details... Did you get it righted? Did it run? How'd you get it home? C'mon, man, we need more info!

Oh, BTW, welcome to YT!

This really does HAVE to be the best first post ever...Congrats on that.
A plus like that should help balance out the negative of rolling that rig. Let us know how it turned out???

thanks for the replies, i would like to answer your questions. it took a few hours to get it back on all fours. unfourtunatly half the oil drained into the cylinders and it was hydrolocked. we came back with new plugs, drained the oil from the cylinders and replaced the fouled plugs. She fired on the first crank of the key! although she smoked for about ten min. we drove out about 12 miles of trail and got back on us60 drove home with crushed top and no windshield. got a lot of looks and thumbs up!.
I just bought pipe today to build a cage and i am choping the top from behind the front seats. i will post pictures after i am done next weekend.
we got out the truck before she went so thankfully no one was hurt.

OUCH!!! Do we have like protocol's for rollovers? It seem as if it's a badge of honor... oh man it would kill me figuratively and maybe literally
What to watch out for on the trail
what to do while rolling over
what to do after rolling over
etc. etc.?

Definetly an accomplishment, I'm proud of ya. You win a badge of honor, just wondering what I might get for needing a cat to pull me out of the local tank-trap? A lesser glory.
