Parked Rollover Rating?

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?

Thanks!

What about the rolling rollover rating? On my X, without the sway bars, my X feels like its going to roll just making a U-turn! haha

This is the 2nd farthest I have ever been offcamber and I had to climb out the window. The only time it leaned over farther was a real pucker factor.

SAS no sway bars and 37s.

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-

I'll draw a free body diagram and make a physics problem out of it later

Sounds like some banging going on O.O It would take a good amount of force at stand still or a very good angle. ANything you could possibly do from in the cabin most likely will not tip it.

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 :
tire size
tire pressure
tire ply
suspension strength (springs wear out over time)
shocks (same as above)
ground softness
vehicle weight (even between the same make and model theres going to be differences)
wind speed


And theres lots more I dont feel like typing.
