I bought my 2017 KL TH on 12/12/16 for the purpose as a daily commuter to and from work which is a 42 mile trek each way and when the weather gets funky I still need to get to work and the TH does just that. Like I said bought it 12/12/16 and took it out to play in the mud the first week of ownership. Loved it and can't wait to use El Rhino as much as I can off the beaten path.

Back on topic, gents! I swerved to nail a huge puddle on my way to work this morning. Got it with both left tires. I hollered, "Trailhawk, b*tches!" as the puddle splashed up. That's my utilization for the month!

I spent my whole career off-roading being paid for it so I know off-roading can be done in anything from a rear wheel drive pick up to a 4x4. It just depends how stuck you want to get!
Statistics show only 15% of 4x4's go off road and probably only 1% of those see hard rated trails. Probobly that 1% read about off-roading and get excited about it like us.
So the answer to your question is probobly just about all Trailhawks get underutilized off-roading but are put to high use getting the kids to school safely and they do great in the Malls👮*♀️

LOL!

I did say I understood that the pictures didn't show the rough part, but as a "justification" (as if we need any) for buying a Trailhawk they looked a bit tame.

With trails like that I'd use my Trailhawk for off-roading, too. But around here it looks mainly like the pictures below once you get more than 10 feet from the road.
