Trail Rated???

I just purchased a 2006 Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.7 and guys I LOVE IT! Ive been wanting a Jeep for so long its not funny, my dad totalled my 2005 Scion Xb last week and I immediatly started looking for jeeps! The plan was to pay the Scion off and get a 4 door wrangler but since I couldnt I settled for the Grand Cherokee. Its Silver with matching door handles, Leather Jeep embroidered seats, Navi, Rear Dvd system, sunroof, The works! BUT I noticed it didnt have the Trail rated emblem on it. Is it still good to go for offroad things? Or is does it not have the capability others have?

Re: Trail Rated???

First of all,welcome! and hey from another v-6'er. The GC's won't have the trail rated badge unless they at least have a low-range for the transfer case. Unfortunately that is not available on the v-6 models,only the v-8 equipped. It doesn't mean you can't offroad,it just means there may be the odd rock-crawling situation that you may not do well in.

Hope you enjoy the truck!

Re: Trail Rated???

there are a very limited amount of V6's with 4lo...but they are rare and had to be ordered that way. If you had 4lo.....there will be a chrome T-handle to the right of your shifter.

Re: Trail Rated???

You can get alot of the factory parts like mopar molded running boards and body kits and other things from justforjeeps.com. Check out our vendor section for our other amazing vendors we have on here for HID conversion kits (non projector style) vinyl lettering and decal work, electronics and all other kinds of vendors.

The SRT8 sway bars front and rear are great handeling upgrades, if you want new shocks but Bilstein shocks, they will get rid of the floating that wks do on the highway over bumps, 15 to 20% tint up front will match rear well.
