I got to around 30 degrees the other day and that was enough to make me pay some serious attention (for those veterans I'm sure your comfortable sitting on the passenger but for us noobs it was sure fun!). I've tried to look it up but it doesn't seem to be a hot topic so its why I ask. I'm curious how far a first gen xterra parked can safely lean before rolling? Lets assume its has no gear in it or on the roof and it is the 4WD model. Anyone have a link to this or know a factory spec?
I think it all depends on if there is a lift, if so how high. As that raises your center of gravity.
If your center of gravity is on the + side of the lean, you would continue rolling. I assume you knew that though-
Wow some serious angle there midget28! nice x as well! I'm talking a bone stock or just a pml lifted x for simplicity sake. once it gets lifted passed that you just have to be wary. But is there a true angle measured by nissan for the max parked rollover rate. Don't want to check it myself haha!
At speed it doesn't matter since you can roll a car at any speed really.
Theres just to many variables to put a standard number on it.
Things like :
suspension strength (springs wear out over time)
shocks (same as above)
vehicle weight (even between the same make and model theres going to be differences)
