Lol, you literally have no clue what you're taking about. That "issue" with his hood was because he dove nosed the front end....if you know what that means

In my opinion I'd never spend money on a unibody, I don't want what Im riding in to be the frame, I want my frame seperate, its stronger and more durable with a full frame and more capabilities

Man you have alot to learn on vehicle construction.Today's unibody vehicles are are somewhere around 300%+ stiffer then todays body on frame vehicles,and probally 3-4 times that compared to older body on frame vehicles.Don't let the massive damage fool you when a unibody vehicle get's hit,it's supposed to crumble to absorb and deflect the energy from the hit around the passenger compartment.A body on frame design will not and can not do that.Basically your chances of living from a good hit from a full size van is better in a Ford Fusion then a '80's Caddy.

Starting very soon,like next year, most of your HD vans(compareable to Fords E250/E350) will now be unibody.Stronger,safer,and can haul more then the bodu on frame variants.

Newer unibody's being stiffer means less body flexing offroad also.You can lift a unibody vehicle just like a body on frame and get as much flex as a body on frame vehicle.
