What makes a Jeep "Trail Rated"?

What does the badge mean? And why doesn't by Commander have one? I have a 4.7L.

Re: Trail Rated Badge

Do you have 4x4 or 4x2?

Re: Trail Rated Badge

Mine does! It's a Hemi Limited, though----your's may be different.

On a side note: Why does Jeep put the emblem on the driver side, but not on the passenger side?

Re: Trail Rated Badge

Trail rated means that it has the Quadra-Trac II Active Full-Time 4WD and also the 3.73 axle ratio. Are you sure you have the 4.7, because it is a standard option with the 4.7.

Re: Trail Rated Badge

You need the NV245 two speed transfer case and stuff that comes w/ it to be "Trail Rated". IIRC, on the 4.7L it comes w/ the off-road package and it may be an option if you have the tow package. There may even be a "Trail Rated" package w/ the 3.7L if you have the off-road option. Otherwise, I believe the technical lingo is that the "Trail Rated" XKs are 4WD(by Jeep standards) and the non-"Trail Rated" XKs are AWD(full-time single speed torque transfer systems).

I hope your joking! there should be one badge on each side.

The emblems basically that you have the one of the 2 upgraded 4x4 systems Quadra- Drive 2, and Quadra- Trac 2. Each have 2 speed transfer cases (4 Lo) If you don't have the badge you probably have Quadra- Trac 1, which is the basic 4x4 system I think.

You might want to check with your dealership, get them to put on another emblem on the other side. We cant have an uneven Commander!
