Off-Roading Tips for the Jeep Wrangler
The 5 Best Off-Roading Tips for the Jeep Wrangler
It’s no secret that safety is the key when off-roading in your Jeep Wrangler. This iconic model has long been the gold standard for off-road performance and capability, and we’ve taken the opportunity to provide you with a few valuable tips so you can enjoy hitting the trails to the fullest and without incident. If you’re based in or around our home of Calgary, Alberta, allow us the pleasure of filling you in below, and feel free to get in touch with us at Crowfoot Dodge Chrysler for more on the Jeep Wrangler in our new inventory.
1. Know Your Vehicle Intimately
It’s always best to know what your Wrangler is capable of before hitting the trails. In addition to understanding its performance, we strongly recommend assessing its ground clearance and making sure it’s equipped with the proper off-roading components, as this will ensure that you can venture off the beaten path safely.
2. Know the Best Off-Road Trails
Safety is indeed the key, and it’s just as important to know your trails as it is to know your Wrangler. You could be driving over hills, sand, mud, or rock, and it’s ideal to know what your terrain will look like beforehand so you can adjust your drive accordingly. If you’d like details regarding the safest and most popular Jeep off-road trails in the area and how best to brave them, contact us at Crowfoot Dodge Chrysler today.
3. Make Sure You’re Prepared
Before you take the wheel, remember to check your Wrangler’s integral components and fluid levels, and make sure you bring the proper tools in case you get in a jam while on the trails. Stock up on a recovery kit, a flashlight, work gloves, a tire repair kit, a jack, hand tools, and a jump-start kit, as these will come in handy in case of emergency and allow you to embark on your adventure with a clear head.
4. Bring Company
Off-roading with a friend or two does more than make for a memorable experience. Simply put, two heads are stronger than one, and if ever you’re stranded while mudding or rock-crawling, a friend will help you get out of your jam much quicker than if you’re riding alone.
5. Know Your Limits
Venturing off the beaten path may give you a thrill, but it’s always important to know your limits. Don’t feel like you have to push your Wrangler to the limit, and if you’re approaching an obstacle that makes you uneasy, it’s best to err on the side of caution and avoid it altogether.
Nearly every model in our Jeep inventory is built to handle various kinds of terrain, and we’ll be happy to fill you in on our stable’s off-road capabilities. Drop us a line at Crowfoot Dodge Chrysler, and we’ll provide you with all the particulars.
