Off road: Jeep ZJ or 05 F150?

My mechanic says his 05 f150 4wd (5ft bed) is made for off-roading. He says my Jeep Grand Cherokee 1998 is a "urban assault vehicle." My argument was that my Jeep is made for off roading more so than is his F150 since I don't have ifs or large rear hangover. Your thoughts?
Update: And to say cherokees are not good for off-roading is just silly. Yes, CJs are better, but really, look at the way they're built. Look at their geometry: no overhangs. That, and all you need is a life and big tires and a cherokee be able to hold its own against a cj.
