Body on frame is usually worse in torsion rigidity. Unibody is generally much stiffer.

What I believe your trying to infer is that because a body of frame vehicle is designed to twist, it can handle overloading better than a unitbody. I will agree with this.

I was also referring strictly to SUVs (with a factory intent to do some offroading), not pick up trucks.
