If you own a Jeep®, there’s a decent chance that you have some plans for off-roading this spring and summer. After all, the Jeep® lineup is built to handle uncharted territories, whether it be shallow creeks, sandy beaches, or rocky terrains. But is your Jeep® as ready as it can be? Use these tips to get your Jeep ready for off-roading!
Everyday tires that are designed for pavement are an efficient option for your day-to-day commute, but they won’t do your Jeep® justice while you’re off-road. Investing in a pair of all-terrain tires will help you get the most out of your off-roading adventures.
If you’re planning to go over uneven ground—which is usually a given in off-roading—you’ll want to get a suspension lift to avoid damaging your undercarriage. A four-inch lift kit paired with your new off-road ready tires will work well in the wild.
Another important step in protecting your Jeep® when off-roading is the addition of skid plates. This will protect the bottom side of the front-end of your Jeep® against any damage you might potentially incur while bounding over rocky terrain.
Step ups, also known as nerf steps, aren’t necessary for protecting your Jeep®, but they do add more comfort to your experience. Plus, it’s easier to welcome company along on your trip when they have an accessible climb into the lifted Jeep® seats.
These are just some of the steps you can take to ensure that your Jeep® is ready to roll off-road this season. If you need the latest Jeep® accessories from Mopar®, stop into Blackburn CDJR and we’ll help get you what you want.
