No spotter, what else could go wrong?

Amazing, watch what happens at the end, he is lucky to be alive.
I bet he had no seatbelt on either.

If this is a repost, I am going to slap myself.

that is so insane!!!!. if it was not for a the low budget filming I would swear that is CGI. I would not want to wheel with that fool ever.

I would also like to see the aftermath of the LC when it was done rolling.

I wouldn't say it was wrong, the guy traded his Jeep for the Cruiser and then went out and did magic with it, like a rabbit out of a hat.

So what caused that? Looks to me like two things.

1) No spotter
2) A little too much speed.

Nice dismount though.

3) Too short of a wheel base.

That was a thing of beauty if you ask me though. What went wrong there = 0 in my book. That'd be one of the best days I'd ever had on the trail. When it comes to almost wrecking my rig and/or killing myself in the process. The number of days when worse has gone wrong for me I couldn't count on all 20 digits. NO PAIN, NO GAIN! IF YOU AIN'T BREAKIN' STUFF, YOU AIN'T WHEELIN' HARD ENOUGH!!! I'll bet he got in and drove 'er home...eventually.

I've never wheeled with the added convenience of a spotter. I can think of one time that it REALLY would have been a bonus. I would've appreciated if somebody would've noticed the mess I was about to get into and said something like, "Hold on there cowboy! There's 2 trees when you get down the trail a piece over there. I'm not sure you're truck will fit between them, and once you get over those stumps on the way down, you're gonna be screwed for coming back up. Because you ain't got no lockers!"

Then I wouldn't have went and done this:
