Well, I don't really have the money for a Wrangler or Grand Cherokee at the moment. I'm 23 and this was my first car purchase. When my patriot gets old and paid off, I'll probably go for a wrangler next. I will definitely stay within the jeep family for now on. They are great.

He never pulled me out. He was there incase I did get stuck. I only have fd1, he has all the low gears and all the good stuff to do hardcore off roading. He was there to make sure I didn't get stuck and if I did, I had something powerful enough to get me out.

It also depends on driving skills.

Well I never drove off road with a car. Only with a quad. And my friend with the FJ had a jeep his whole life and is a very experienced driver on off roads. Better to be safe than stupid. He guided me and pushed me to so things he knew I could conquer.

Well, when I had my patriot I wheeled it all the time. Even with the crap stock tires. Its a very capable vehicle. I traded it a year and a half ago on a new wrangler unlimited. I am in the process of buying my patriot back for my wife. Ha ha. It won't wheel as good as my jk, but I will put money on the patriot vs. Any other cute ute on the trails or in deep snow etc. Build is better, capability is better, looks way better.

I had a blast in mine. Just know its limits and don't hammer it. It will take you to some great places, and make you a better driver while doing as you will have to finesse through stuff you just point and go in bigger rigs.
