No offense taken. When you say "most people", no one I know comes to mind that has a triangulated B pillar. Most of my "hard" wheeling has been slow rock crawling. I have flopped many times and rolled once but my roll was not catastrophic. It was almost slow motion. I've never been one to challenge a hill that will result in a hard roll. Not that it can't happen on a lesser hill but that hasn't been my style. Helmet hill comes to mind. It can only be made with a full on throttle commitment. If you don't make it, you will hit hard on your side. I tried crawling it with the stickies & got 1/3 way up. That was good enough for me, I backed out. I've always hated the triangulated B pillars where there is a slanted bar directly behind the seats. As a mostly casual wheeler, they make access a PITA. I'm not the hardcore wheeler many seem to think I am. Ask Erin, he'll tell you I'm a puss.
