Re: SCANDALOUS!!! 20" Wheels AND Trail Rated?!?!

C'mon, the skid plate argument is ridiculous. Jeep offered trail rated Grand Cherokees in the WJ and WK without skid plates. Both my dad's WJ and my WK are trail rated from the factory (per Jeep) and neither has skid plates, or tow hooks for that matter.

What does matter though for trail capability, regardless of what Jeep says, is a Jeep with 4x4 with LOW and good tires for All Terrain.

So, whats behind that badge that makes it so special?
x2. You can also just buy the badge and stick it on to like I did on my 98 Cherokee

Re: SCANDALOUS!!! 20" Wheels AND Trail Rated?!?!

Oh and to add to the conspiracy, the Jeep Liberty with the bigger wheels/tires DOES NOT have the badge too!

Its a huge conspiracy with Obama, Bush, and Clinton rolled all into one

Re: SCANDALOUS!!! 20" Wheels AND Trail Rated?!?!

The use of the Trail Rated badge is inconsistent at best. In 2005, I think all Grand Cherokees were Trail Rated if they were a 4x4. Fast forward to 2011, you now have to add the "off road package" for the the badge. There weren't any tow hook or skid plates or even a tow package on my '05. Seems to be more about marketing and profit than anything else. I can promise you that my '11 is just as capable as my '05 was (probably more so).
