I had a "trail rated" Grand Cherokee rental when I was in Oregon for a spell, me & a buddy decided to go exploring MT. Hood one afternoon, nothing crazy, just some winding medium duty logging trails, steady climbs, ruts & roots, but no mud or rock crawling. The next morning when I went to start the jeep, the instrument cluster lit up like a Christmas tree, the speedo didnt work, the car wouldn't rev above 3000, and the abs system was dead...total POS. Returned it to the rental car company & they gave me a 4wd Trail Blazer...way better. Took that with the wife exploring Mt. St. Helens & we hit far more difficult terrain, unscripted ground, & it handled it better in every instance...very eye opening.
