    Were you expecting the roll to the right side in that test?

    Weren't expecting that at all. Never had one roll before. Then we did it again just to be sure.

    Ran right out and bought a second one to wreck?

    So... how will it fare in the rollover test? Doesn't look very safe...

    After the OEM questioned the results, absolutely. Nothing to hide here.

    The vehicle held up fine. A passenger on the side it landed on, not so much.

    Clown makeup, actually. Very greasy. Leaves nice marks at the gentlest of touches, sort of like FF.

    TBH, I'm not surprised. We're so used to SUVs now, everyone's forgetting about their higher CG. I nearly rolled my Exploder on its side at low speed just hitting an unseen curb in the dark

    Yep. It is mentioned in all the stories on this.

    Wrangler's are awesome. I'd love to have one. I don't think this is a big surprise to people. They don't call it a roll bar now, for legal reasons, but why do you supposed it is the only vehicle made that has one?
