For the record, the trail rated wranglers didn't fair that much better, but they didn't have to be trailered off the property. They're the only consumer vehicles to pass, so far. The testing is extremely tough. And yes, Ford and Chevy have sent vehicles to the same proving grounds. The Ford raptor failed miserably.
I know they do some testing on the Wranglers on the Rubicon Trail for Chrysler (not sure who does it though) and you will see them with prototype Jeeps up there periodically (these have covers over most of the body so you cna't get good pictures of a new model). I don't know about the other models though. truth be told I am sure you could get a long ways on the Trail with a stock Liberty. I have driven my wife's Acura MDX a ways up the Trail before (Shhhhh!). I stopped when overhang issues were going to cause damage.
