Ford knew about it and decided to release the Bronco II anyway because they would loose to much money shelfing the build or rebuilding the entire truck so they decided to release it to the public the way it was. The Bronco II was rolling over left and right in emergency lane changes and various other situations killing people so they revised it and came out with the Explorer in 1990 and still didn't completely fix the rollover issue.

    This has pretty much nothing to do with wheel spacers. Drive any old explorer like that and you're gonna roll. Only way you wont is with heavy duty sway bars and stiff suspension
