I'm not worried about it , I have no intention of ramming a conrete wall . 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

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

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.
