Wranglers are made for serious off-roading!
I'd put it up against any over engineered German SUV any time. No offense, but it sounds like you've come to a forum for Jeeps and asking if it is okay to play with one until you get into a REAL off-road vehicle.
I'm sure you didn't mean it and I wish to welcome you to our forum. To each their own, but the Wrangler is a good vehicle and yes, it will see you through anything and then you can decide if you like it better than your European pickup truck.
Welcome to the forum!
