Wow, I watched a bunch too, and there seems to be a common theme.
Up something that's too steep, then wheelie, then backwards flip, then smash, then tumbel down the hill.

Ok, I only watched the first one so far, it is interesting that the arm came into view after the jeep was out of the screen, but in the last twisting flip, both dummies had there arms. Was there a 3rd dummy in the back seat that fell out?...

Watch it again and see what you think.. interesting anyway,... now on to the rest,.... I have seen too many Jeeps roll and flip in real life also, no one got hurt, just some feelings and sheet metal.

If you watch the driver's left arm, you'll see that the arm came out of the sleeve. The sleeve is there, but the arm gone.

OK, after looking at it frame by frame, yes it was the drivers arm,... Now to spent the rest of the night looking at other Jeep roll overs so I can learn what NOT to do in mine.,.....

Have to love this site that provides so much great information and a way to spend the night when my wife wants me to work on the house.

I love the military style jeeps... Also the fact that they create random body parts during crashes is pretty amazing

We flipped this MRC-107 on I-215 going to March AFB one day pulling a trailer with demolitions in it. We had the blasting caps in the jeep with us and everything got scattered all over the dern freeway. When we told the Chippy what we were looking for he turned green. We told him to just not key his radios since the shunts may have come off the caps in all the excitement.

Some jerkoff cut us off and them jeeps ain't the most manueverable, especially with the trailer whip sawing you. Couple new windows and some sheet metal work and we were good to go. Had to replace a couple aircraft UHF/VHF antennas too on the roof that got pancaked.

Jeep was an AM General military version that had a pallet installed in the rear seat for air to ground comms. Vietnam issue era jeep that we limped along with until the Hummers came out. Now the boyz are racing around in Chenoweths and RATTs.

Thanks for the post Spectr17. I went to a bomb class last week and saw just what blasting caps can do :shock: Out of curiousity, was the police bomb squad called out to clean up or was it handled by the military :?:

Ah yes the MRC-107. Those are a rare breed today as I understand that due to their inherent unstableness and history of rollovers, all decommissioned MRC-107s are supposed to be chopped up instead of sold at auction. I have seen a couple around, but pretty much in collectors hands only.

I had a M151 A1 when I was in high school. It had been cut in half and sold as scrap. It was welded back together. The guy I bought it from had been broadsided by a harley going about 80mph. It was so doglegged I would wear out the left rear tire every 500 miles. But I had a lot fun in that thing.

i know a guy that lost his arm in a jeep rollover while he was in the army, they were able to re-attach it, but it has very limited mobility.

Thinking back, that may have been a MRC-108 we flipped. 108s had hard sides and top and 107s had the canvas sides and top if I remember right. Goobermint sent me to school to fix them but I'll be darned if I can recall which is which. We only had one 108 and three 107s at Norton.

No bomb squad call, that would have taken hours. We had to git to March and we convinced the Chippy we could gather up the mess and be gone most rikki tic. We flipped the Jeep back over and reattached the trailer and scrammed. He just wanted his freeway cleared. Only an accident report was filed and no one knew any different. Nowdays, it would be a Sig Alert and 6 hour shut down. The only real problem could have been the caps.

Most of the stuff was still in the ammo cans and just spilled out onto the freeway. One can got run over and I'm sure the person who squashed it would have been tickled to find out what they had pancaked.

One of the 107s at Norton next to our hangar at Blg. 719, which is now a Stater Bros warehouse. If they only knew the history around that hangar.

We mounted some aircraft landing lights on the roofline to help recover parachutes in the desert at night. since the MRC was already 24 vdc they worked REAL good. You could stand in front of the jeep to keep warm on them cold desert nights and fry the retinas out at 1/2 mile on someone who refused to dim their high beams. Chippies never did make us cover them either.
