2005 Wrangler Airbag Specifications...

Does anyone have the technical information regarding the Airbags in the 2005 Wrangler (TJ), 2 door, Rubicon? I was hoping to find out at what speed they are supposed to deploy. My daughter had an accident last summer (NO airbag deployment) and we are now getting sued by the individual that she rear ended. There was quite a bit of sheet metal (cosmetic) damage (grill, hood, fenders). However, the head lights did not even break and there was no frame damage whatsoever. She rear ended a 2003 Jeep Liberty w/rear mounted spare tire. There was minimal damage to the liberty... Any info would help. Thanks!

Modern airbags deploy based on vehicle speed and deceleration G forces caused by the accident. The airbag control monitors the parameters and deploys the airbags only when all the programmed parameters are exceeded.

Most states hold the driver who rear-ends another vehicle responsible for the crash.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Thanks for the info. I was aware of the G Forces, as well as, the fact my daughter was deemed at fault. I am just looking for a technical/quantitative answer. The main issue is the Injuries that are being claimed seem way to drastic for the speed and damage that occurred. Being a Firefighter/Paramedic, I have seen much worse, with much less injuries...

Thanks again for the reply!
