Yep. That's why I have a dash cam. Because of Bonehead idiots like that.

Thinking of putting one in the rear too.

Happy I put one in... But then again, I restored a flipped NAS so I already had a very good idea of what happens even with a cage... And they help a lot!!

Wow, that's hard to watch. I'm not sure I would call that a relatively low speed rollover, that looks like freeway speeds to me. There was certainly some momentum involved for it to lunch into a half twist off the guard rail and land on its roof (instead of just flopping onto the side)...

While there is certainly no guarantee to anything, that certainly looks like a cage would have made a significant difference in that drivers chances for survival..

whats the origin of the video? Any idea if the D90 driver survived? He appears to go limp at the end of the video...disturbing.

The subtitle says Novopriozersk Highway. Near Leningrad maybe?

Looks about similar to the rollover protection of a Mid-90's Ford Explorer.

I knew there was a reason why I drive 55 on the highway in the right lane in my Defender

What, you don't NEED an LS swap, 4" lift and 35"s so you can drive around like a reckless tool at >85mph?

I have the Whitbread 5 door and fits great on ribbed roof. If you go that route, talk to Malcolm and be sure to get the middle mounting brackets

I do NOT have a ribbed roof.

My tub does have the step downs in the back. How's the fitment on the Whitbread?

OK. You have the step downs too. So that bracket just fits snuggle down in there without interference?

It just touches the upper ledge but no issue - One could prob grind off just a hair of the bracket to be 100% flush if you desire
