It's a computer game, afaik it's ultimate car simulation. Of course, you can do whatever ya want basically there



OK that is why I have never heard of it. I detest computer games, they are making Mental Midgets out of a lot of people.

Title Correction...

BeamNG has convinced the masses that 2-Door Broncos are unsafe...

All of the crap demonstrations are on 4-door vehicles EXCEPT the Bronco.

I'm assuming a lot of you all have seen the videos on social media that show Broncos turning into crushed coke cans the second they crash or are crashed into...

Some examples






I'm guessing most people don't know this, but this is from a PC game called BeamNG drive. The game doesn't feature the Ford Bronco out of the box. Meaning, someone created a Bronco mod for the game and it doesn't represent how the Bronco would behave in the real world, especially since the Bronco has a SFA in the game :)

If anyone is interested I recorded some "test" videos with the Bronco -driving and crashing and one off-roading with 35's and 42's :) It's a fun game, but no-one should take it too seriously.



NOPE. Have not and don't care.

You are putting much more faith in the critical thinking skills on the average internet user than I ever would.
One of my favorite engineering professors, (who specialized in failure analysis, consulting, and litigation) said something in a course about product safety regarding trials that resonated and stuck with me since.

"The average American has a 6th grade science background"

Also probably why I did so well in his classes because he talked to me like the dummy I am.

That bottom video though.
Actual footage?
Seems legit.
Top comes flying off and I especially like the self-healing doors, reattaching mirrors like an Iron Man suit, and rock rails. Ford should patent that part.
I'd like a self-healing Iron Man/Wolverine mashup Bronco please. It would make trail days ever so much more fun. Or Target runs. Either way.
It would be like the car from "Viper"

The dumb masses I believe.
Never heard of that whatever it is, and who the hell has time for that?

Yep, never heard of it. If it's a video game, don't people know they are on a video game? Can you randomly get on a video game without knowing? Wonder if it's like GTA?

I had a co-worker in the late 90s watch "Anaconda" and proceed to quote "facts" about Anacondas to me ;)

In his defense, Ice Cube was quite convincing.
