    AKK sorry wax.. I must of misread your thread (http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=317520) because I read to mean the exact opposite of what you actually said. -- In fact I dug the thread up to link it in my defense and then learned I misread it when it was originally posted.

    OK Fair enough.

    But if I get busted for bypassing the ****ing profanity filter. (;)) Can this ******* get busted for spamming? Seems fair to me. ;)

    I suggest you try it. Go get a Jeep Compass, call Jeep/Chrysler/Fiat corporate, get all of the info you need, including all testing procedures, instrumentation, etc, and tell Jeep that you will incur all the costs out of your own pocket, but in the event you can prove that it can be trail rated, then they can reimburse you for all of your costs. Might be about a hundred grand. Then, take a semester off from high school, oops, I mean, a few months off of work, and set out to perform the testing yourself - traverse the Rio Grande or something - we'll wait. When you are on the phone with Jeep, make sure you ask them what the definition of "registered trademark" is. Then, go perform exactly the same tests with a new XTerra, and prove that it DOESN'T pass. Once you do all of this, then you can STILL NOT TRULY SAY YOU OWN US, you stupid, moronic freaking jackass.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to buy a 10 y/o used Land Cruiser, and do things in it your idiotic mind cannot even comprehend and that a (marketing gimmic) trail rated POS brand new Grand Cherokee cannot perform.....

    Riddle me this, a hole: why is it that Dodge counterpart vehicles that are exactly the same as Jeeps except for bodywork (Nitro same as Liberty, new Durango same as Grand Cherokee) are not trail rated?

    How far do you really want to take this?

    I think its hilarious. Everytime I see an X-terra or a trail rated jeep I remember this thread and it makes me at least smile. Sometimes I'll even laugh out loud in a crowd of people.

    Sorry, but I am just trying to understand. What you are saying is that the Dodge, which is "supposedly" the same as the Jeep, is in fact not the same, as it is not, and theoretically can not be, Trail Rated? This is certainly a win for Jeep!

    Dude, read the rest of the thread... this is a 4 year long dumb joke of him baiting people into a mindless debate. The whole thing is just a big waste of bandwidth.

    the problem that you have got is that the Dodge hasn't been trail rated. i dunno who said it was the same as the jeep but i can guarantee you one thing it's not trail rated. you can't always buy a car just because it looks nice. i think its wise to look a little deeper beyond the flash and see how good the car really is.

    I was almost swayed by the Dodge's new television commercial, but then I watched it again and I noticed the lack of Trail Rating. This thread has really helped me understand.
    Thanks Husker.

    OMG you guys can't be serious.

    Can anyone check to see if these accounts originate from the same IP?

    In case you're not the same troll....Qvb...the point is that, oh hell, forget it.

    alot of the times on commercials you aren't getting the full story. sometimes they leave out factoids that could affect the customers buying decisions. what you have to look at is if it is really trail rated and if it's not there isn't going to be a badge on the car. that's the hole point - alot of these cars are not trail rated but they are being passed off as if they are.

    Welcome back Husker. Not the same without you.

    Does anyone know how to check and see if ANY of the Toyotas are Trail Rated? I like Toyotas but I'm not stupid.

    definatily they are not because i went to blows with the local dealership about this very question. i argued with the guy for maybe 15 minutes before i finally just left. i am not saying that toyotas are not good cars because i think that they have some good points but as of right now they don't have a unit that has the trail rated. they will try to tell you it dont matter blah blah and thats fine you just need to know what you are buying.

    NO BECAUSE TRAIL RATED IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARKED LOGO OF JEEP BECAUSE IT IS A MARKETING TACTIC AND HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CAPABILITIES OF OTHER, MORE CAPABLE VEHICLES, BECAUSE JEEP FIGURED OUT A WAY TO HOOK YOU KOOKY PEOPLE INTO BELIEVING THAT THIS HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH ALL 4 WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES. APPARENTLY YOU ARE STUPID!

    AND I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE IS YET ANOTHER PERSON THAT DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS ALL MARKETING TO ADD TO THE POT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm done wasting keystrokes on this nonsensical trash.

    This tread has really bummed me out because I was considering selling my Landcruiser, and now I feel compelled to disclose that it is not trail rated to prospective buyers. That may cost me a few thousand right there. Had I known that when I bought it new, I certainly would have used it as a lever to drive the purchase price down a few notches.

    It's like paying top dollar for that classic car you've always wanted, only to discover it was in a horrific accident and patched for quick resale.

    HUSKER IS A TROLL THAT ENJOYS GETTING RESPONSES LIKE THIS FROM PEOPLE. PEOPLE ARE NOT THAT DUMB,THEY ARE BEING SARCASTIC AND ARE PLAYING WITH HIM. WHAT I CAN'T BELIEVE IS THAT YOU CAN'T SEE THIS. IF YOU DON'T REALIZE THAT YOU PROBABLY AREN'T IN A POSITION TO BE CALLING OTHER PEOPLE STUPID.
    SEE, ISN'T CAPS LOCK ANNOYING.

    I didn't get any coffee 'til noon.

    So yes, I'll admit to being a complete idiot in this instance.

    i really don't see what the big deal is about this. i started this post over 4 years ago just as an alert that certain SUVs aren't trail rated and a few pages later I'm the second coming of Hitler himself.

    LET ME SAY THIS: I AM JUST THE MESSENGER. I DON'T TRAIL RATE YOUR SUV.

    BUT IF I COULD .... I'D SLAP A TRAIL RATED BADGE ON EVERY ONE OF YOUR CARS JUST BECAUSE YOU ALL ARE SUCH DARN NICE GUYS.
