- Assess the condition of your tires
Typically, all Jeep SUVs are raised off the road compared to the standard vehicles. Nevertheless, if your adventure will likely involve some mudding towards your destination, it is best advised to check and change the tires for a product designed for off-roading troubles, having larger lugs as well as broader tread. Apart from the fact that it ensures that less fuel is used during the adventure, also, it offers improved braking power and a more effective grip in rough, swampy or unbalanced terrains.
- Get the suspension cranked
One of the worst experiences you can come across during a trip is to hit a ditch and hear the sound “oomph” from the backend of your vehicle as it scrapes the gravel. Although it is inadvisable to raise your suspension extremely high and feel like you are flying rather than riding, you also have to ensure that your SUV possesses sufficient clearance so as to escape any holes that come your way completely. Another worthy and useful investment are Skid plates; they help to safeguard the vehicles’ underbody.
- Check the Emergency as well as Recovery Kit
In some situations, unfortunate circumstances such as your vehicle getting stuck or stranded may happen. In such cases, having the right and adequate supplies to resolve the situation can be a life-saver. Hence, before you commence your next trip, ensure that you stock your vehicle with supplies such as foods, medical kits, compass, tools, water, maps, etc. All these materials may come handy at any time.
On a final note, it is well worth putting a little extra time into your preperations. Not only for the practical benefits but also you will have peace of mind. Being confident you have all your babes covered will allow you to fully enjoy your time on the trails!
