4x4 Patriot Latitude off roading?

Hey guys!
I recently bought a Patriot Latitude 4x4 and wondering the most I could do on the off road. Obviously huge puddles and climbing rocks won't be on the menu.
But, I'm sure this thing could go up some nice hills and medium puddles

Never wheel alone,have another vehicle with you and have proper front and rear tow points and a good recovery strap(no metal hooks).

Besides common sense tread design will be your major obstacle.

I mean I don't plan on going extreme. Just a little fun. I mean, that's why people buy jeeps. To have some fun in them! It's not a wrangler but it seems as if this car can have some fun

Agreed. Stock tires stink. Also, FDI vs FDII will make a big difference.

If you had a grand Cherokee or wrangler you would never say that. Please, please get a GC. Please
