Finally are able to post a picture of the maverick flipped after a tie rod broke and launched them forward and slammed them down. As you can see they were on flat sand.

They were going like 25-30. Yes the maverick is trash, I am sure they will total it. Everything is messed up. The driver got 4 broken ribs, tail bone and messed up ear. The seat came un done in the back, that is why he has 4 broken ribs. :(

where were you guys at when this happened? I am suprised that the seat belt didn't hold even though the seat came undone. I am glad that I got the 5 pt harness for my wife and daughter.
I hope everyone makes a full recovery!

Yea I wish that I had bought the 4 or 5 point harness. And other seat came 100% undone. Live and learn, when we get a new one there will be alot of changes made before it os driven that is for sure. I just do not want anyone else to get hurt, or even killed over this.

The upper part is attached to the cage, and if you have seen the pictures I have seen then you would understand how the driver got so messed up. That cage folded down badly on the drivers side..

Desertdog, my 5pt harnesses are in the garage waiting on my bar to show up. How did you mount the 5th point? Do you have a picture of how it was done?
thanks.
Here is a pic. Both sides are similar. I welded a tab to the frame.
