The Essential 4x4 Accessories for Successful and Safe Off-Roading

Four wheel drive accessories

Off-roading can be a ton of fun and excitement if you have great company. In fact, it's been one of my favourite pastime weekend activities for quite a while now, and I've come a long way since in terms of experience and skill. Because, believe me, off-roading can be tough, especially the first few times you go exploring unknown territory. Getting stuck is a common occurrence, and hitting a 'roo once left me stranded for over 6 hours before help came. 


With that said, properly preparing yourself and equipping your vehicle with the essential four wheel drive accessories is essential. Things like a bull bar, LED lighting (if you plan on driving in the evenings), recovery gear, a toolkit and an air compressor will have you prepared for almost every problem you come across. Pro tip: Look for a four wheel drive accessories sale to get the best deals possible at the moment, and buy from the same vendor for possible discounts. 


Furthermore, find a four wheel drive accessories sale from a reputable vendor who stocks quality brands. Because in 4x4 accessories, reliability is the most important factor. You don't don't want a poorly-designed 'roo bar that won't protect your front end optimally. And you definitely don't want an air compressor that doesn't have enough power to inflate your tyres to the optimum pressure level.

Additionally, you should consider getting two types of recovery gear. You'll get stuck more often than you think, and one method won't be the most reliable for every type of situation you get stuck into. Recovery tracks and a winch, or recovery tracks with a high-lift jack will have you covered for the most part. Have a pair of work lights as well, in case you need to work on your vehicle when it's dark outside. 


Speaking of working on your vehicle, make sure to grab a set of tools with you. If you're knowledgeable about your vehicle, then you probably know what you need. Otherwise, it's time to get knowledgeable, because eventually, you'll have to fix a couple of things yourself. Start off with a couple of essential tools and expand your range as you go.


Once you have all of the above, you're bound to have a smoother off-roading experience. Besides being able to help yourself out, you'll be able to help others, which is what off-roading in a group is all about.
