The pre Pentastar JKs were so pitiful, I doubt they could exceed the speed limit anyway.

It's true. The JK was a complete joke compared to the older 4L and the new 3.6 pentastar in 2012. I hope they bring a 2.8L diesel to the states for the wrangler soon

What are you talking about? Honda has traditionally done very well in crash tests. What makes you think that they are insubstantial?

Pre 997 GT2 yes. The 997 and RS are anything but widow makers. Easy to drive fast and pretty tame compared to the 996 or older ones.

I find this entertaining since Washington state DOT, fish & wildlife, park rangers, some police agencies and most tribal police use this exact truck.

Why do you say that??? The wrangler has very thick roof bars and in the early 2000's did very well in crash tests because of this. Those roof bars are sturdier than a traditional cars roof components consisting of welded together stamped steel sheets.

I don't know how well a wrangler does in a crash test today, but don't let that thin non-structural sheetmetal fool you. It does nothing in a crash, only the body structure is what you should compare.

The demo definitely has a good bit to do with it. These cars really are quick, and can be had awfully cheap - combine that with the shaky behavior at the limit and you get lots of inexperienced younger drivers flying into the weeds.

I owned one for several years and was probably pretty close to making it into these statistics once or twice Definitely could be scary at the limit, especially with cheap, grippy rubber.

I was checking out the crash site on Google Street View this morning. Not really sure how they got up to 100 mph there. Kind of impressive (and idiotic, but that's a given).

If you go to insurance Institute for highway safety website and look up the crash test results, the 2010 wrangler scored marginal or poor for 3 out of 4 tests. There might be a roll cage but limbs and heads will be chopped off if they can't be contained inside the vehicle.
