Picked up five Boosts today on my lunch break. They're dirty, but in overall good shape. I'm repainting one of them.

Was it a wet road? Glad everyone is ok -- would be interested to hear the story/factors

It is expensive but the quality is there. JuSt got back from running a 7-11 trip. It drives like a new truck. No steering rub squeaks and just feels good. The new land rover logo in the center looks nice.

So I am pushing it around Lake Hughes Road which is a favorite among the sport bike crowd. Anyway, I do have the 3 inch lift and long travel 7100s BUT I do run both the front and rear sways because 99.9% of the driving lately is on the road and at time with the kids in the car. I am running the rovertym springs. I took a 15mph hairpin turn at lets say 25 and oversteer takes place as the tail whips around the truck. Of course if I really remained calm and counter steered and throttle I could have recovered it but I am not that smart. I am running 33sx12 on 15 inch beadlocks which gives it a much wider stance. I think these trucks just out handle anything in their class. Road conditions were dry.

Hell of a story. You say 'not that smart' and you could have counter-steered... counter steering could have very easily resulted in an over-correction and then regaining of traction... which would have definitely flipped you.
