Looks scary.

I'm not worried about it , I have no intention of ramming a conrete wall :laugh: . Besides , bones will heal , no mention of this causing any dibilitating injuries . Lifted Jeeps would have no issue with this , we just drive over it and flip , 10" of compressing the floor boards is the least of my worries

Sure was a pretty jeep though , I wonder where the diff went :rofl:

That looks like mine... kinda eerie seeing it getting smashed into a wall like that :D

That's why we have these.

For this exact reason when the dash "rolls" up on the person.

If you want that level of safety in a new vehicle, Nissan's still making the Xterra with that "feature." :D

j.love 04-08-2009 11:42 AM

This test measures the relative strength of the vehicles. The heavier the vehicle the larger the impact forces. It shows the damage that would happen in an offset head-on collision with a vehicle of the SAME weight. Generally, heavier vehicles don't do well on this test, in real life however things are different. A heavier vehicle always wins against a lighter one.

The Jeep was bad, but in the ford I dont think you would have any legs left from the looks of it.
