Default Ranger crash safety

Wandering around on youtube has killed a lot of time for me, but I found a series of crash tests for the ranger and they are a little scary. Really makes me reconsider caging the truck. Or at least looking into integrating the airbags in my seats with the trucks crash systems. Scary stuff. I wonder how much the energy of a crash is deflected or redirected on a lifted or double lifted truck as opposed to stock 2wd height.

Default Re: Ranger crash safety

It all depends on the force and the mechenisms involved in the crash such as speed and many other variables
