Thank you for posting this... wow. A good reminder that safety comes first... so glad everyone was (miraculously) okay.

Bravo to the other wheelers giving up their fun day out on the trail to help get others home.

Interesting thread...definitely a scary situation. Next roll "800 ft" down...miracle indeed.

Makes me want to check every bolt on the jeep today.
Another reminder to us. A good inspection might have uncovered the pending failure. On my way to Colorado (August), I remembered I had not thoroughly checked out the TJ since the last trip to Colorado. I am so glad they are alive!

It it interesting that AAA paid part of the bill. I am not a member, but I think I may give them a second look.

I was glad to hear everyone is ok. Not a place I would want to be and have a failure. For those that have never been on Red Cone, it is breathtaking. In more ways than one. The view is absolutely unbelievable. The down hill? 4lo and 1st gear and keep your foot as far away from the brake as possible.

Here is a pic of the uphill side. If you look up near the top you can the the driver side drop off. You can't see the passenger side drop off very well. It's a little better but still not good.
