It's a damn good thing it didn't roll over in a school crosswalk!

Td5 performance? It's not a LS or a coyote 5.0

I wonder how many with ROW Defenders simply have no idea of the lack of roll over protection these vehicles provide.

What a sad picture

All you have to do is look. Soon as I got my rover and looked inside I began searching threads for 'series roll cage'. The tops are thin sheet metal and rivets, no protection at all from a roll over. I have seen an accident like that happen, it was freaky. Vehicle flipped multiple times and landed flattened and upside down in the ditch. If that driver walked away, maybe the driver I saw did too.

At least he didn't have one of those stupid, macho looking exo-cages fitted to his truck.

Look at the mangled trailing arms. The right side is even detached from the axle. Any anyone seen that before?

It's the first thing I wanted added when I bought mine. Actually felt unsafe driving it without one.

I've seen too many pictures and videos showing the possible dangers not to get one installed.

That appears to have been a very violent multi roll over @ highway speed. You guys are cranking on the safety factor but reality is there are not many vehicles that live people exit from after multiple rolls.
