Thanks Dear Rahim, Nothing more than your knowledge bro :)

Looking forward to meet sometime!

I believe the Grand Cherokee limited is a very good off-road option, but has only 2 rows of seats that is 5 seats. The only thing that bothers me about the modern off-road vehicles is that they have too many safety features and computers on board that spoil the fun. Just recently we had a Jeep Grand Cherokee which had it seat belt tensioners exploding in the middle of the drive. Its not fun when for these small things you have to go to police for reports or agency for repairs.

Why I agree with Toyota Prado as a good for both on-road family and off-road as well is because it does not have that many computers on board or technologies which restrict you from having fun. However if you want to go for luxury I think you should keep it for on-road only and check for a reliable second 4x4 for your off-road use.

I personally have a Mitsubishi Pajero 3.8 V6 which is used on-road only and for my off-road I have a Nissan Pathfinder 2001 model.

@Rahimdad in last GulfNews fun drive a brand new Grand Cherokee finished the drive begin to end with not so experienced Off roaders...i assume it must be good in spite of the Electronics.

JGC running the GNFD entire course in Liwa is possible. Without any incidents is either luck or knowledge which we do not possess. When you buy a brand new Jeep they offer you a free course in Jeep academy. When I got my Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi I had to follow up to get my free class. Ian and Gurmeet were the ones who showed me how to use it best.
