They may not be safe "feature-wise" with side airbags, crumple-zones, etc, but in terms of life-and-death crashes, I'd rather be in a Wrangler than almost any car out there (especially in a rollover). And it's very inexpensive and easy to install 5-point harness systems, padded rollbars, and a few other "safety" options in Jeeps that make them even better. If we're talking about backseat passengers tho, then ya, it's not safe at all. I had a friend fall out of my Jeep once in the backseat (no seatbelt obviously ...but still). Not cool at all.
