Re: Jeeps top heavy ?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] First of all......NEVER trust the media. Remember, those people all sided with the dirtbag in convincing us that Ken Starr was the bad guy, instead of the lying, piece of crap in the white house. But on to Jeeps. AS MANUFACTURED, Jeeps are pretty stable. It's actually tough to roll a late-model Jeep. If you jack it up; put huge tires on it; well.....it CAN make it more unstable. You will be happy to know, that the statistics from the Highway Loss Data Institute rate Jeeps as WELL above average in crash injuries (Wranglers are 89......100 is average....a Suzuki is 111....a Geo Tracker is 143...an Isuzu Amigo is 151) Datsuns weren't rated, but most small pickups were better than average except for Toy, Mitsu,Isuzu, and Nissan.....they were all about 112.

I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] made 'em up themselves.
