New Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Owner

Hello all,

I am a new owner of a 16' Cherokee Trailhawk edition and am very pleased with it (only had it one day) so far.

I have seen all the reviews on youtube legitimizing it as a proper 4x4 Off Road truck. I am wondering if any one in here has taken one out on the trail(s) in Ontario? Which trail(s) did you go to? How difficult was it? Etc.

TIA

I ran a few trails last weekend that are 2+ to about a 3/4 level bone stock in the Bobcaygeon area. Look at grabbing either @HazzardSky or @myfirstcherokee lift kit, and think about getting better rubber. The stock Firestones don't do well on rock.

Welcome aboard, from one Canuck to another. If you can't find decent trails in Ontario, come on out to B.C. as we have thousands of miles of them here. Seriously, go on Google and check out www.backroadpmapbooks.com or phone Mussio Ventures, toll free 1-866-520-5670. They publish off road map books, including one called "Cottage Country", and as an an old (83 yrs old) Hamilton boy, I know where that is. - Ted

I agree. Just got back from Trailfest 2016 here in Ontario, and it was surprising how well the vehicles did.

It's one thing to watch the videos and view pictures, but it's another thing to actually go out and do some off-roading.

I was surprised, both good and bad. Knowing that there are clearance issues, destroyed plastic is part of the game, the upgrade rails are on the list of things to get.

I will be honest and say that I need more knowledge and experience before I stand on the soap box again and yell out how good these are, as the weekend showed me it's not the vehicle, it's the driver. Learn how to drive them properly, and I'm sure you'll be happily surprised.
