Hi All.

I have been watching the latest videos posted on the Renegade TH managing some light wooded trails, etc. and wanted to get some opinions from the community.

Based on what we have seen so far, do you think the Renegade TH could manage the trail in this video? (link below):

Thanks!

I didn't make it through the whole thing, it looked pretty mild and the same throughout. With the caveat that is is a really wide angle lens making it hard to estimate the relative size of things, the only thing that looked like it might cause issue were some of the divots from off-roaders turning into pits that could trap a tire. Other than that it looks mildly more challenging than field parking at a festival. Maybe I missed something harrowing in skipping around it though.

Thanks raz-0.

I don't have much off-road experience...and it has been a few years since I rode on that trail...but planning on moving there soon so shopping a vehicle for it. Renegade is interesting as it gets great MPG which would be nice in HI.

I honestly think a little more width on the tires and it would basically be a little dune buggy :D

I've owned a Liberty in the past and liked the smaller size.

Some of the Youtube videos I have been watching have the Limited doing short excursions like this. If the Renegade Limited or Trailhawk can't do this type of track then I don't want it. Certainly a "Trail Rated" badge should be able to perform low technical trails like shown in the video.

but

after watching a few videos I wonder if the stock tires will be good enough to dig out of deep sand.

Great finds rhicks and great point.

I was actually thinking the Renegade TH would benefit from wider tires. I know my Liberty did.

Of course if a nice rain storm kicks up...navigating the trail might be little more challenging?

Nobody knows. Jeep keeps showing the TH with a mishmash of tires which so far don't seem to be the ones they say will come on the car, which they have yet to pick one of officially. So...
