Looks like an in transit accident
Air Bags would not deploy, require key on, gear in Drive or Manual, and min required speed

0-12 mph impact (0-3 gs)-No air bag deployment, no seat belt Emergency Tensioning Retractor (ETR) deployment.

12-18 mph impact (3-4 gs)-No air bag deployment, seat belt Emergency Tensioning Retractor tightens seat belt as much as 6-7 inches.

18+ mph impact (4gs+)-Air bag deploys using one cylinder. This gives a softer bag, about 70% inflated.

At higher g forces the second cylinder deploys giving a harder bag appropriate for high speed crashes. Deployment of the second cylinder can occur at 5, 10, or 15 milliseconds after the first cylinder deploys, giving the exact amount of air bag needed for the impact."

My guess this was a test drive by a customer or a dealer rep.

Nice! Where was that?

Here's mine this morning at the mouth of the Manistee River in Michigan.

That looks killer. This is in Upstate SC, just an old road in the woods but has a really nice bridge and creek.

How do you like the lift, are you running 35s?

In the parking lot outside HObby Lobby waiting for the Ol’ ball ‘n chain. Seriously contemplating getting the wheels powder coated all black.

I think powder coating the wheels would look awesome! I love the contrast of white Jeeps with black wheels.

That would look great. What's that typically run for all 5 wheels?

I love it. It rides super smooth and handles close to stock. I don't fight the wheel like JK's I've driven with 35s. The only thing I'd change is 5th and 6th gear on the highway at about 70mph. They are just a fraction taller than I'd like them to be, but I just have to get used to them. There's plenty of power, it just hit the gas mileage a little harder than I'd hoped. I got about 16.5 to 17 on the highway on the trip to Michigan. I guess that isn't too bad, considering the lift/tires.

VERY nice! Love the 37's. And, how cool is it that your son is starting the Jeep addiction early. His tires are almost as big as yours lol.
