I love the sound of that 4.0 straight six when you punch it...

She was attempting vehicular suicide and succeeded in that, but in the car vs Jeep matchup the truck won and even though it probably flipped end for end 6 times you could still open all the doors and all the glass except the rear window was intact.

You could not identify what the car had been.

My brother in law had one the last time I was out to visit my sister. So I ended up borrowing theirs for a trip up into the mountains. No 4x4 action done, but it was a nice stable car.

My sister bought a new Jeep with all the bells and whistles and says she wishes she still had her old '89 Cherokee (it got totalled in an accident)... she has driven a Jeep for the past 20 years because of her job requirements taking her on and off the road in every kind of weather.

I will have to take her out for a spin.

True story:

Wife and I had a Jeep Cherokee. Then she became my ex- and kept the Jeep. (I preferred to keep my 3rd gen Honda Civic Si...) Eventually, she gave it to my mentally disabled son. He proceeded to pretty much wreck it through neglect and "custom" "upgrades." Eventually, after a brake caught on fire one time, it needed to go. It was parked in my driveway while being advertised on CL, Uncle Henrys for about $1200. No takers. So he comes by with a tall tale about how he needs it over at his mom's house because a friend of his wants to take a look at buying it (read: he wants to go mudding out on the farm with it).

That night there is a terrible windstorm. Top of a pine tree falls on it, crushing the rear quarter, more like half the car, totalled.

He calls me in a panic to let me know what happened. He's prone to tall tales, so it takes a few sentences before I actually believe him, but the distress in his voice convinces me:

Me: "Well... if you'd left it at our place, it would still be OK."
Son: "What?!?"
Me: "So this is basically your fault, since it needed to be over at your place tonight."
Son: "Dad, no!"
Me: "Pretty much -- you parked it under the tree, right? Your fault."
Son: "DAD, NO!!!"

Eventually, after getting done teasing him for a bit, I conceded that it was just stupid luck the tree fell on the car.

Epilogue: Insurance paid $3k on the totaled Jeep. Everyone was happy.

That's nuts. Almost infuriating just hearing about it. I hope your sister got one hell of a settlement from here estate/insurance. Congrats on the new vehicle. I've always been partial to the 4.0's, but there are very few in decent condition still here in the rust belt.

My nephew was driving with a few friends... he got one hell of a settlement but that will never pay for the pain he experienced and continues to experience.

He broke almost every bone in his body from the hips down, fractured his pelvis, and lost a spleen in the accident.

That's awful. Long term pain management is one of the toughest things to deal with. I am no stranger to that.
One of these days I'll find a decent condition first generation Range Rover that isn't ridiculously overpriced. (Shakes fist)

And just for you, Sixty. Apparently "4x4 friday" is a thing.

I see one here in Carrboro on occasion that has the top rear cut off like a Bronco.

Does it look crap or well done? I know some coach builders got a hold of old RR's back in the heydays of excess.
