Any Dump Question

I recently purchased my 2011 GC Laredo X. My jeep only has the basic quadra-Trac I system. How limited am I off-road? Is my jeep no different than driving most other 4-wheel drive vehicles or is it still superior since it's a jeep. Again sorry for the naive question?

Re: Any Dump Question

There has been discussion on this topic on the forum. The general feeling is that you have a superior system within the limits of no lower range or downhill contol.

Re: Any Dump Question

The Quadra-Trac I system is basically an AWD system instead of 4x4. However, it's a very respectable system. It has tackled everything I've thrown at it so far. Deep snow, ice, slush, gravel, mud, wet fields. Haven't gotten stuck once.

Now bare in mind it doesn't have low range, so no deep mud or rock climbing.

Re: Any Dump Question

your AWD system should be able to handle anything you put it up against. provided that you stay within the limits of the platform.

Deep mud and rock climbing are not within the limits of the platform without modification.

You can always have the hitch installed later on

Depending on the radio you have, there is a software update to fix iphone 4 issues.
