Re: Rock n Roll in CA

The crazy thing is I drove out to Pahrump on the 4th and felt the quake before I left Vegas.
Also, I thought Pahrump was in Nevada, not CA like that article says.

Re: Rock n Roll in CA

Article appears to be corrected - it says NV, near the Cali border.


Picture of Jeep - I would call a high lift jack and cinder blocks as "safely" lifted.


A shame it happened, for sure.

Look like rocks to me. In any event, a very bad way to go.

Re: Rock n Roll in CA

Looks to me like the entire blurred out part of the image is all his body fluid, likely a head shot from the axle / hub.


The 4x4 is suspect, was take a jack-stand that spit out ? The hi-lift was probably used to get him out.


Bottom line ........ a REAL F'ed up way to go.

Re: Rock n Roll in CA

I think those are rocks; body removed prior to snapshot.

Re: Rock n Roll in CA

A couple of years ago I bought some 6-ton jack stands from HF. The first time I used them they both collapsed as soon as I lowered the front axle of the Jeep onto them. I discovered that the pawls were cast steel, and VERY roughly cast. They just didn't have teeth to sufficiently engage the matching teeth on the riser. I took them back. About a year later I was hanging out at Avery's place when a HB-6 ton jack stand collapsed under Bricker's jeep, with Bricker sitting on the ground right next to it. Thankfully, no one was under it. BE WARNED -- I'VE PERSONALLY SEEN HARBOR FREIGHT 6-TON JACK STANDS FAIL TWICE. ITS A PIECE OF CRAP PRODUCT AND NOT WORTH THE RISK, in my opinion.

BTW, lest anyone think I just have some sort of axe to grind with HB, I have owed a set of their 3-ton stands for years and use them regularly.

Re: Rock n Roll in CA

My new rule is HF stuff is OK in a pinch as long as there are no moving parts. I have no problem believing those suckers failed. When it comes to actual life-saving safety devices, spend the cash.
