Any pix of his sport cage? That looks close to the one I have in my TJ, I wanna see how damaged it got. The cage must have worked as he lived.

Thank you for all the well wishes, I will pass them on to Ward. He is doing great. My husband and I have known Ward for over 25 years and are so very glad to see him walk away from the rollover. He is one tough cookie!! Here are some of the "after" pictures. The guys had to straighten out the rollcage some before it could be driven back to camp.

Hi Jon
First i would like to say I am glad Ward is ok! Now what are you going to do with the carcass! We looking at a new body? Frame? Wow I was surprised how much the cage pulled away from the dash/body! Have a good one! Dont worry about the drama queens up here, they are just jealous that they were not there to see it themselves!

Nice to hear from you again Dave. Right now the plan is to cut the back off and tube it. Then we will cover the tube with sheet metal and put a good 8 point cage in that is tied to the frame in all 8 places. We will probably raise the cage 3-4 inches since Ward is a tall Dude. The frame and running gear are fine but we will be looking for a hood and window frame. I will post up the Photo Shop drawing that Josh did for Ward to drool over while Cherie [his wife] tends to his wounds.

Glad to hear that he is ok! What a scare for him. As they say "a pictures is worth a thousand words". I could only imagine what was going thru his mind at the time. I am sure that we could all learn something from this.? I did....

Is that this spot? It looks like it is....This is from a jamboree run at rimrock probably about 6 years ago now....This one didn't go but it was close before it wedged against the tree...I helped get the two kids out of the back and the wife out of the passenger seat once it was secure..They were a bit freaked out..
