This is my first Jeep so I'm new to all this. Thanks everyone!
Go for it OP, you'll be plenty happy with what this machine can do for what it's intended for. Many of us have proven it around the board with pictures, videos, etc.

Cheers!

I did. I gave an opinion of what the Latitude can do, which isn't much, relatively speaking.

As jeepmom has said, there is proof of what the Jeep can do.

Do you have anything, besides your opinion of what you think the specs can handle, to prove what it can't do?

You will note that my biggest concern with the non-Trailhawk Renegades is the lack of a spare tire. Anyone who goes offroading without a spare is just dumb.

Since you asked.

Seriously? That's your biggest concern? The lack of a spare tire doesn't mean the vehicle is incapable. By that logic, a Rubicon isn't an off-road vehicle because it doesn't come standard with a winch and tow straps.

The video compares the Renegade to two JKs and if you watch it closely you'll see the problem isn't with the Renegade, it's with the driver.

Anything else?

Without a spare tire, I won't even take a Wrangler Rubicon off road. All the capability in the world isn't for s#&t when your stranded due to a torn sidewall (and I have had torn sidewalls). If you don't understand this, please do us a favor and stick to paved streets. That way we won't have to come rescue your a$$ due to you being dumb.

As for the video, I can assure you it was not the driver. With no power (due to traction control) and no articulation, the Renegade isn't going far up that hill. And I have been up that hill three times.

Here is an easier trail. Notice that the Renegade needed to be pushed up an easy little rock due to lack of power. The driver is very experienced off road.

1.) You keep equating standard equipment with capability. You think the Latitude needs a spare? Great. Buy one. The lack of a spare doesn't mean the vehicle is incapable of going off road, as has been shown.
2.) You're oddly obsessed with sidewall punctures and given the number you seem to have had... ever think maybe you're doing something wrong? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Just a thought.
3.) As for the video it was absolutely the driver. He picks a bad line. He powers wrong. But most telling is the fact that he gives up at the first sign of an issue. He... like you... seems more intent on trying to show what the vehicle can't do, so he can move on to the JKs.
4.) With your next video, it shows the Renegade to be "surprisingly capable". Given what the OP asks, this "proof" actually shows just how good the Renegade is on trails.

I've enjoyed this little debate, but you're at a point now where you're just proving yourself wrong so you don't need me for that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go drive some paved streets and not call your dumb a$$ when I don't get stuck... or whatever you said.

You are the one equating a spare tire with capability. I am talking being able to get home. If there are doubts about getting back, shouldn't be going out to begin with.
I have had three torn sidewalls because I actually wheel my Jeep. I am not talking dirt roads, but real off road trails with large, sharp rocks, and tree roots.

Andre made three attempts to go furthur. You in no way shape or form could do better. I am very familiar with that trail where you don't know squat.

Black bear, technically speaking, is an easy trail.

So all in all, you are the one who doesn't know what you are talking about as you don't have any proof of the Renegades capability. And I do.
