and NOT anything written by Consumer Reports.

Wow, that was what speed? The clip is so short and the JK goes by so fast I'm guessing 45mph?

Now I see why all the free space up front for crumple zone. Too bad that's also what Jeep sees and supposedly why they decided not to fill the engine bay with motor.

I noticed in the side impact video it looked like the only thing that save the driver was the Frame rail. With how fast the side was smashing in I am pretty sure you would be f'ed if the impact was above the frame. I knwo that is pretty unlikely but still looked pretty scary before it hit the frame

BWAHAHAHAHA, but no need for a REAL crash test dummy, the "dummy" that owns it can write a review of any injuries.

2007 JK, 4.5" RE LA kit, ATLAS4spd, ARB rear w/ Superiors, Rubi front w/RCV axles, 5.38's, 40" KM2's, 18x10 Raceline Beadlocks, 1"BL, Poly Rockers, RR corners, PS fenders, etc...the list goes on.

I crash tested my 07,, doing 55 had a dodge neon hit me head on doing 60-70.. The other driver was killed shortly after being removed from the crumpled neon.. Both my wife and I have neck and back issues(I broke my neck) but We did get out of the JK ourselves.. great front impact survivabilty built in these things!
