    I see a lot of vehicles going through the Rubicon, and a lot of Jeeps smashed up as a result, Ive been through there in my Toyota, perhaps they should have a "Rubicon Rated" designation!

    As any true off-roader will tell you, only the MOAB ratings really matter ;)

    That is actually a good idea!
    On a related note ... there's an older (80s I think) Toyota 4wd pickup here that has a sticker in the rear window:

    "I totally get the Jeep thing. That's why I drive a Toyota."

    but more likely because they've only had one single vehicle make it through the trail. That would hardly qualify a model as trail rated if you know what I mean.

    No.

    Do a search on threads started by the OP, Husker. You'll want your time back.


    To the op, let me help you:


    Trail Rated

    As Jeep's on forum says... it means nothing.

    See the PD thread. But the short answer is because Husker started a new one.

    Sigh. Too bad it took me reading through this and the thread about looking at a Land Cruiser before I realized Husker is schlepping for Jeep. Pretty obvious now. :(

    BTW, I had the newer body XTerra (2006) with a 6 speed manual and 4WD and it took me anywhere I asked it to (including crawling in Moab) in stock form. It HAS a 2 spd transfer case, TXMR2 (who's looking down his nose from the seat of his Toyota).

    After reading this is his incessant moronic posts in the Land Cruiser thread I really wish someone would ban this idiot.

    EDIT: WOW, I'm surprised he's not banned yet.

    Maybe this (and the LC tread) will be the last straw?

    Rob I'm a newbie but I'm sick of him already. If you're taking opinions. ;)

    I still laugh when I think of trail rated and remember this thread.

    hey...it wasn't me that brought up the Trail-rated topic in the LC thread. ;)

    But really, I'm for banning anyone that makes light of the whole trail-rated thing. It's a very somber matter. As is Ferrarichat. As are internet message forums. :eek:

    saw a dude at lunch today with an X Terra that looked brand new. Asked him about it and he said that he just bought it. I said "Have they trail rated the thing yet?" He just looked at me. :eek:

    I can't believe that people are forking out hard earned dollars for these SUVs that aren't even trail rated.

    Just spotted a Jeep Compass today and I looked at that vehicle front to back and it does not have a Trail rated badge anywhere to be found. So all you guys that were poo poo 'ing this as a Jeep hoax I guess have been owned. There are even jeeps that don't get the trail rating. :eek:

    The point is jeep won't badge the vehicle if it doesn't pass the trail rating.
