No dogs were injured, some bruised ribs on one passenger in back when other guy fell on him.
Lesson learned: make sure heavy weight passengers are not all on low side when transversing hill. The only damage incurred was the windshield popped out . It was a slow motion tump-over in sand.. Took about 5 minutes to upright it.
(still struggling to get other pictures up.)

Another angle. The water was the pre-obstacle, the ditch after is about 6-7 ft deep. It was a drunken midnight pinz ride and my buddy is like "go for it, you've made it a dozen times before !". I pussed out and said I didn't want to roll it with every one in back. So I started to turn around and it tumped over anyways.

Good reason to bring a few friends with you when you go offroading.
Be nice to me. I'm a rug muncher.

That's something you now know . Kudos.
They have to be 25 years old to be imported into the U.S.
Don't know the rules for the UK.

Can't tell from that cryptic exchange whether you're being an ungrateful cunt or not, but just to be on the safe side, fuck you.

Nah, you're read more into my brief note than I meant to convey.
I went to the link you posted, but I couldn't navigate the site. I only understand a little German.

I was only having a larf. A little drunk, it happens. I was toying with the idea of buying a Pinz but don't have the terrain to play on to justify it. Ended up buying a couple of field telephones and a petrol cook set instead. Bloody internet.

No doubt, for 40y/o trucks they are bad to the bone.
The thing is it can carry a lot more people and cargo than a jeep, rover or land cruiser.
And the 4 wheeled version like in the video(710) have the same wheelbase.
But they can't go much faster than 60 mph. 45 is pretty much cruising speed.
