The SRT might have the power, but it lacks the ground clearance. In fact, I'd rate its Off Road ability about the same as any other powerful car
(Mustang GT, Porsche 911, Chevy Camaro).
1. His post was sarcastic.
2. While I agree with you that the SRT does not even come close to an QD-II equipped GC in terms of off road ability, it is not as bad as you make it seem. It still has at least 6 inches of ground clearance (maybe more), which is more than a lot of SUVs. Also, the 4x4/AWD system on the SRT is no worse than those on most other SUVs in terms of going off-road, as practically all of them are designed for street use. Either way, any 4x4/AWD system is better than RWD for off-road use. Lastly, the SRT still has fairly large sidewalls which obviously help off-road.
3. Now you are just being ridiculous. While it is no Wrangler, the SRT is definitely better than a RWD sports car with 2 inches of ground clearance and no sidewalls off-road.
