best way to search on autotrader?

Anyone come up with a good way to search for trail rated compass's and patriots on auto trader? You can use keywords. But seems that most dealers don't write the words "trail rated" or "freedom drive 2" or "fd2" in the description. I've often been reduced to filling in search parameters to as close as possible then looking at pics just to see things like the badge or the shifting column. Any better ways?

Filter for 4x4/awd, then look at the pictures. Things to look for: tow hooks on the front and rear, trail rated badge, and most importantly, if they have a picture of the gear shift the words "off road" next to the low on gear shift.

Of course. I already do that. When you filter for 4wd/awd there are a ton of results.

Sorry no better way that I have found. But I can drill through the pictures pretty quickly. Oh and stock 16" rims = not a fdii.
