Question What makes the new GC Trail Rated? isn't mine...

Do you have to order the ORAII package to have the label as being 'trail-rated' or can I simply install skid plates and tow hooks on my non-ORAII Overland with 20'' rims and buy the badge? I had an '06 trail rated overland before and mine isn't trail-rated now. I swear it's more capable with QDII/QL and the selec-terrain system.

I want the badge of honor!

You have to have a 4lo for it to be trailrated.

Re: What makes the new GC Trail Rated? isn't mine...

I've seen an SRT8 driving around here with a trail rated badge. Pathetic! Clearly ordered the badge online and stuck it on...should say street rated!

Re: What makes the new GC Trail Rated? isn't mine...

For the Overland, the only things an off road package would add are the skid plates, tow hooks, and badge while also downgrading the wheels to 18" rims (the 20" ones are too vulnerable to dings).

I've added the skid plates and plan to add the hooks. I don't know if I'll be also getting a set of smaller rims; maybe if it ever starts looking likely that I'll be going way out into the boonies. I figure the plates and hooks will be enough for light trails; if I were going to do rock hopping, though, some better wheels would be a necessity.

No, it's because you're wearing street tires. I'm sure you can buy the badge on eBay if you just have to have it, but it won't do you any good in the muck.

No badge needed here. By the way, even the trail rated version wears street tires and I guarantee that they will get you stuck in the muck as well. To be trail rated you need the 18's and skid plates on the WK2. An overland can be trail rated for a couple hundred bucks and comes with the 18's and the plates etc. If you want to play in the mud, get yourself a set of AT - MT tires and you are good to go.

No badge is needed.. though, to get the badge, you need to get one of the oRA packages.. and even then, it's the skid plates that gets the trail rated badges.

p.s. I like to not have swamp ass while on the trails.
