This update brings the total number of trails, which range from tame and mild to totally wild, to 56 nationwide that include the famous Rubicon Trail in California, Hell's Revenge in Moab, and Imogene Pass in Colorado.
"We created the Badge of Honor program as a fun way to interact with our loyal off-road Jeep enthusiasts, allowing them to do what they love most, and earn unique trail badges for their vehicle," said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand - FCA North America. "The program has really taken off, and we often see Jeep vehicles with many different badges that represent conquered trails around the country. With continued program interest, we've expanded the Badge of Honor mobile app with many new features our customers will enjoy."
Additional updates to the mobile app include enhancements to trail check-in and badge request pages, photo uploads and sharing, and details and directions on the trails. Responding to user requests, Jeep has also added the ability to suggest a new trail, share trail accomplishments on other social networks, and have added a more detailed user profile.
