Wrangler Safety

Seems like some loser Lawyer is out for the Wrangler. Jumping on the Rool over band wagon. Heres your chance to bash this blood sucker. If anyone out there has had a bad experience with Wrangler rollover that was not Driver induced nows your chance to vent.

Now you know why you Pay Mega bucks for a new Wrangler. Its because of all those under employed Blood suckers out there.


I HATE LAWYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm guessing you mean roll-overs on road. I've only heard of a few roll overs but they because of icy roads or driver related.

I haven't heard of anyone going ofater wranglers, though.

Umm... Elaborate please.

Also, where did this start? Is there an article or link to something that I can read and reply to? Thanks.

Oh no, I just happened to mention my dad was a lawyer in another thread and he blew up. (My dad doesn't want me to get a wrangler; He's had 3 or 4 rollover cases) Thats it.

Ok, Sorry RollingMammal, didnt mean to flame you. I just freaked when you said lawyer. Just thoght I would put the subject out there and see what other Wrangler Owners felt about the subject of Roll Overs.
Its true I dont have a fuzzy feeling about Lawyers.
If you research the Wrangler, you will find it was inspired by the so called Roll Over prone Samari.

Dave,
I understand that you have no bearing on what your Dad's occupation is. However, you should know that lawyers are not the most liked or trusted individuals for obvious reasons. Now, as for the thoughts on YJ's rolling, well that's just down right ignorant and absurd. Especially the idea that you cannot get one due to your father having a few cases where someone (the DRIVER) was at fault. NOT THE JEEP!! I suppose you can't own a gun because he's had cases where someone shot themselves. Or how about you can't drink any alcohol since he's had some drunk driving cases. Ya know, maybe you shouldn't drink coffee because you may spill it on you, after all it is hot.

Do you see where this is going? This is not a flame on you. It just really bites my *** when people refuse to take responsibility for there own actions. Like rolling a jeep. After all it's NOT a car. You cannot expect it to perform like one. You don't expect a Mack truck to handle like a car, why should people expect a jeep to?

Well, I'm off my soap box. Like I said, this is nothing against you Dave. From what I've seen, people who like jeeps and drive them correctly, end up being better drivers in cars as well. Part of driving a jeep is getting to know your vehicle and know it's limitations. You carry that over to other vehicles too. In turn, you end up being a more cautious and aware driver.

I saw on TV last night where some guy is sueing a car company because his son was killed in an accident where the son was a passenger in the back seat. I don't remember what make the vehicle was but it only had TWO seats in the back, both were occupied by other passengers, and his son was sitting in the middle, partially on both seats and, subsequently no seat belt. The guy is suing because there was no seat belt for a third passenger, even though the back seat was designed for only two people.

I'm sorry the guy lost his son, but the driver of the vehicle (presumably the father)shoud be charged for wreckless endangerment for carrying a third passenger in the back seat. If this guy wins - well let's see - you could probably fit 8-10 people in the bed of a pick-up, so thats 8-10 more sets of seat belts, and let's not forget the bumpers - somebody could conceivable ride there, so a couple of more sets for them...

This is riduculous! Talk about not taking responsibility for your own actions - who but a lawyer talked this guy into filing a suit? It really pi$$eS me off!

It's all good. I just thought that Sarge over-reacted a wee bit. In any event, we aren't here to argue over whether lawyers are or are not *****. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we'd rather be discussing YJ's.
