For off-road enthusiasts that want to enjoy the great outdoors well into the night, there are several recommended accessories we suggest. If you are looking to illuminate a large area, then a light bar or spotlight is the ideal way to get the job done. With a high-powered light source attached to your Jeep, you won't be limited by the darkness.



Rock Crawling

For those that are interested in taking their Jeep rock crawling, there are a few tips and modifications you can make that will maximize performance. Before you start, it's advised that you drop the PSI of your tires to 15-20. To give yourself ideal traction, you will also want to make sure that you are using the 4x4 in low gear. An important modification to consider, skid plates will help protect the undercarriage of
your Jeep from damage.

You may also want to consider purchasing a lift kit for your SUV. Using a lift kit, your Jeep will easily move over the toughest of terrains.


Snow & Mud

Off-roading in the snow and mud presents a new set of challenges when equipping your Jeep. Since there is a high probability of getting stuck, tow hooks, snatch straps, and winches are excellent tools to have when driving through the mud and snow. As well, you will want to consider purchasing wide, flexible tires with a mild tread pattern. Wider tires will give your vehicle a wide footprint, providing you with enhanced traction.

It is also necessary to ensure your Jeep SUV has a decent cooling system. That way you won't have to worry about high resistance terrain that can lead to boiling radiators and roasted torque converters.



Driving in the sand and dunes can wreak havoc on your vehicle. For those looking to optimize their sand driving, tire size and tire inflation are the most important factors to consider. Try using larger tires, and deflate them to about 10-15 PSI. This will give you better traction and maneuverability from your Jeep.



Whether you are camping, traveling with your ATV, biking, or fishing, Jeep SUVs are designed to take you and all of your gear to the ends of the earth and back. As a precaution, it's recommended that you purchase a first aid kit to keep in your vehicle. With roof rails, storage nets, and the Jeep Brand® cargo management system, all of your gear will be perfectly secured during your travels.
