That is an incredibly asinine statement. Understand physics much?
this sounds like a funny and good story knowing that you survivedI don't see any front-end damage so not sure why they would be expected to deploy. I had a 1st-gen Ford Escape and bounced it off a donkey while dodging a horse and llama (long story). No airbag deployment and I didn't spill my coffee I was holding. The bumper didn't get hit hard but the grill and hood were smashed. Enough to bust the radiator, damage the hood/fenders and create several hours of unibody frame alignment to the tune of $9k in damage which equated to it being totaled.
Finally an explanation for your posts.It was really a lot of fun to be involved in a car crash from a car manufactured in the 60's. Here's a crash test of a modern car with air bags, crumple zones ,etc vs. a car from the 60's. I used to work as a test dummy in high speed crashes and I was pretty nervous when they put me in that old car!
The JL has them since it fist came out in 2018, they're located in the seat. The mandate is NHTSA rule FMVSS no. 266 and it requires every vehicle built after 9/1/2017 to comply.Since when do JL Wranglers have them and since when have they been federally mandated???
