i'm going to put a NASA approved sticker on my jeep.. engineered to resist environmental impacts. like going the speed limit.. like off-road-ing... like not having silly lights that stick up to be crushed in a roll over.. like not having protection from rocks when driving with no doors.. rocks can fly at you any time.. so wear a helmet. have a correct harness.. not a silly cheap seat belt designed to be replaced..
Hey everyone, I'm looking into buying the new 4 door wrangler but my husband is completely against it because he says that wranglers have a high rollover rate and they are top heavy and all that. He says the wheel base is not safe at all. I have been looking around to find information on this, but can't find anything.
I wouldn't be surprised if this used to be an issue with earlier models of wranglers, but is this still an issue with the new ones that are coming out? Any information would help, thanks!
pre JKs are only 3 to 4 feet wide. breath on them wrong and they roll over and play dead. JKs are 7 ft +..don't till over impress you are doing something stupid.
well jeeps are wider then most vehicles.. PUT ON SOME SPACERS.. PUT ON SOME WIDE TIRES.. PUT ON THE CORRECT WHEELS.. NOT FLASHY WHEELS THAT CONNECT ON THE FACE.. YOU NEED MORE TOWARDS THE INSIDE.. I see a lot of silly stuff here.. yes the roll cage is very weak and is design light weight. The jeep is designed light weight.. so why are you putting so much junk on it.. put some big tires on them to save gas.. its low geared for a reason.. the front grill is the major issue. all sorts of twigs and things can get into the cooling system.. No A-arm protection for liquid systems in the wheels.. No protection for block heaters or transmission heaters.. ... the list goes on.. The jeep is not ready to go offroad-ing from the start.. if you want a ready to go off-road rig then spend 50+k on one prebuilt.. I would never buy a rubicon.. it for flashy idiots.. the sport is the best. you decided your style and your safety features for 23,000.. The 30,000 is over priced..
Holy old thread Batman! For the average person a stock JK is more than capable for offroading. But if you don't think so, you have a choice: don't own one.
