I cannot post ME's numbers unless I have dimensional data in order to run an FEA. Pulling numbers from an ASTM structural steel book is totally irrelevant since they do not use structural profiles, they form their own (hydroforming)from sheet steel. Completely different numbers. But I wouldn't expect you to understand this. You are convinced that the Tundra frame is better, you go ahead and keep believing this BS. Still waiting for your response to the stamped, bolted in crossmembers....Your silence regarding this is understandable.

Man, your posts are getting dumber by the second! I NEVER claimed the Tundra's frame is better!! This whole argument was started by you claiming that the FBF is better, but yet showing NOTHING to support this. Even if, a fully boxed frame is better, you still aren't showing how it does anything to benefit the Silverado. Show me one benefit! You're the one making the claim that the FBF is a big deal and that it is far superior to the Tundra's frame. You never want to back it up. I don't need to do anything in this argument except wait for you to come up with actual proof of how this gives the Silverado something "better" than the Tundra.
Again, I have not been silent on the stamped, bolted in crossmembers for the SAME reasons given above. You're the one that brought it up, so go ahead and show me how this gives some advantage to the Chevy. I'm not the one making the claims. You can't "sue" me in court and expect me to make my case against you... you're the one bringing the case, it is yours to make. If I don't say a thing, the judge will dismiss it. Same thing here with the frame argument. You're the one touting the design of it (cross members and all since you're obviously not picking up on the fact that cross-members in fact make up part of the frame) and proclaiming all the supposed "benefits" that it provides the Silverado. So, go ahead lets hear them... (Your silence regarding this is understandable as well)

BTW, they only cover the windows and last time I checked, the windows on the Chevy weren't 41" tall so yeah, they ONLY cover your head and prevent you from going out the side window.
And, more importantly your statement should be more akin to somebody getting killed from a hip/chest injury -- apparently you don't know that you have a torso -- and yes, PLENTY of people have been killed from that over the last x number of years and decades. Just because I don't know them personally doesn't mean it hasn't happened (that is why they made airbags in the first place).

....this is no longer a discussion, but a battleground. If anyone can give me a valid reason to keep it open, send me an email.
