Re: just out of curiousity......
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]I agree with elusive.....the air bag system is just about the most research-intensive, complex system on a modern auto. If you feel the need for more security, get a better seat, and a racing harness to hold you in it. At nearly 4000 pounds, and with a "true" front axle, the Jeep CJ is a pretty good contender when stacked up against the majority of the little econoboxes that people drive all day. As long as I had a good restraint, I wouldn't be afraid to head-on most of this modern stuff with our SNOJEEP. The CJ is by no means a "deformable shape" engineered vehicle, but most of the modern junk is, so you will have the benefit of their car gradually disintegrating as it slows your CJ. Of course you'll have to watch as the winch enters the passenger spaces and kills the occupants in the other car, but maybe their air bags will block your view, at least partially, of the ghastly scene.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Probably the worst thing that you will have to endure is listening to the Klintunoid Liberals cry and bitch about how unfair it was that you survived when the carload of Sierra Club members; who were on their way back from pouring sugar in the fuel tanks of ten pieces of valuable logging machinery; crossed the center line and were all killed because YOU weren't driving an Iron Curtain Caddillac (Yugo) like they were.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
