I agree with JEEPR. If you got a Wrangler & wheel it. It would be a wise choice to upgrade to a rockhard sport cage, or some other 'real' rollcage.
Don't let this stop you from buying a Rubicon.

I think my comment wasn't written very well.

After seen a picture like that I realized that I didn't want to take the risk of totalling a 30k daily driver.

About a year ago, there was a vdo on the web of a vehicle rolling down that hill. It wasn't pretty. The guys girlfriends were doing the vdo taping, they freaked out and were screaming. Never saw the end result of damage, but I cold only imagine it would have looked like that rubi.

Looks like one more good roll would have done the driver/passanger in for good. Almost any full cage would tweak in that situation, but the driver passanger would be in better shape.
