Sorry I don't have the love for it, but everything about it is utterly self indulgent and unnecessarily wasteful, everything it can do is doable by much more responsible vehicles that have had some restraint shown in their design.
I have owned and driven a couple of US cars, all good. But my full size Blazer I sold after five weeks.
2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, 17%/87% high/low gears.

The yanks use huge diesel tractors/trucks to pull heavily laden sledges to see who can pull it the furthest, then if you watch what pulls the sledges back to the start - a little unimog !
I think you need to look into how a weight transfer sledge works! Towing it back down the track with the weight block reset is not in anyway comparable to towing it forward!

I'd much rather drive a Jimny personally, but I understand why big trucks are popular in the States.
2004 Jimny Mode; General Grabber AT3s (215/75/R15); Trailmaster 2" Lift; Jimnybits Snorkel; Jimnybits Front and Rear Recovery Points; Osram Nightbreakers; Suntop Roof Rack; AVM Manual Hubs; ORA Radius Arm Guards; Stainless Steel Exhaust System.
They were testing something called SUVs (I finally found out what it stands for- thankyou Clarkson! )
They had a RangeRover velar, some offering from Porsche, and an Alfa.
They showed that they aren't sporty, aren't useful/utilitarian, and aren't as good a vehicle as a horse.
They all seemed let down by this idea of using flaky "modern" electronic trickery to replace proper mechanical systems.
However, when it came time to tow a powerboat straight over the top of a mountain, Clarkson swapped the Alfa for the world's best selling SUV, the F150 Raptor, which promptly humiliated the others, for less than half the price.
Looks perfect for the rutted cart tracks that pass as main roads in the UK, but too big for the minute spaces on Tescos carpark.
If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there
