Rental from San Jose Del Cabo (SJD) Airport?

First and foremost, I'd like to say "Hi" to everyone, long time listener, first time caller, etc.

I'm looking to rent a car in Baja California towards the end of May and am evaluating options. Looking at a week-long rental which is more than affordable with a standard car rental. However, my itinerary involves some driving on unpaved, corrugated roads, and I'd rather not take my chances with a low clearance and 2-wheel drive.

It turns out that Budget in SJD airport offers a non-standard "all terrain" car class that prices out the same as their SUV class. I'm wondering if its possible to use a BCD to free upgrade into this non-standard class, especially considering that the rental agency is based in Mexico? Or should I be considering an alternative approach.

Thanks in advance!

I can only tell you with my experience with Fox Rent a Car. I also thought about renting a 4x4. However they only have 2 available at all and are most of the times gone, as in my case. Therefore I would make sure that these kind of cars are available beforehand.
