yea and his Blazer has a 3in lift and usually has 31 inch tires on it so its a little roll over prone. Im trying to teach my girlfriend if a deer runs out in front of u, hit the brakes and hold ur line. If u hit it..... o well. its better than swerving and going off the road and rolling or hitting a tree. she has a tendancy to swerve also

Heck I don't even swerve in a car. I just hang on tight and hope because if I swerve and wreck in a ditch, I'm cited for loss of control. If I rear-end someone because they stopped short, cut me off, etc; they're cited.

Not around here in New Mexico! But that is a valid point. I dare not swerve the Park Avenue, because if I do, I will be greeted with a dead slide in a direction I wasn't planning to go in the first place.

UNREAL. And a good reminder to one like me that hates his seat belt. A tumble like that needs more than just airbags to save your life.

NY considers my 2000 Blazer a Suburban on my title. Weird.

After what happened to my wifes 2002 Neon a couple years ago, we decided that we needed something bigger and stronger than a tin can coffin.

Must be nice. Car plates are cheaper in most states than Truck/Van plates.
