    IIHS crash test of 2019 Jeep 4 door Wrangler: hits a barrier at 40 miles an hour conducted by the Insurance Institute, and tipped onto it’s side, the IIHS had to downgrade the Jeep’s safety rating to “marginal”. With a center of gravity higher than most vehicles on the road I'm not surprised of the results. Hope the insurance companies don't use the results to boost surcharges for owning a Jeep. Impressed that the thin light-weight doors stayed closed.

    I tipped my CJ over once, although I was going a lot slower. Had some friends with me on the trail and we put it back on all fours again, then finished the trail and no damage except for bending the side mirror mount. The few scratches I got just blended in the all the previous scratches.

    Im really not all that worried about this. I would be more surprised if it didnt roll.

    When on the trail, if you don't get the crap scared out of you a few times you are really not jeeping.
