“Dash Jack” different on newer model cars?

Question: When doing a “Dash Jack” on late model cars with our hydraulic spreader, we are seeing very little movement to the dash area around the center transmission area and beyond, why?

Answer: The simple answer is stronger metals and added reinforcement for offset frontal crashes. Auto manufacturers are now using Martensitic metal on the forward bulkhead. This metal is 40% lighter and 10 times stronger than previous metals used in this area. It is also being used to tie the dash into the transmission.
