Yeah, but i think that's single ram. Probably had clay stuck in the front of the bed and tried to shake it loose by rolling back and hitting the brakes, and either rolled up on one side on that pile of dirt or just swayed when it didn't break loose and tipped from top heavyness.

Yes - clay soil

Not the most level ground. But other trucks had dumped right before.

Not a hydraulic issue. Based on a look over of the truck that I and the driver did when it was on it's side - I'm 98% confident a mechanical issue was the real culprit, which I'll explain later. Yes "single ram".
