How to Get Your Vehicle Off-Road Ready


At Brooklyn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, all your automotive needs are met. Not only do we host a fine inventory of new and used cars in NYC, but also a team of automotive experts who are passionate about earning your satisfaction. As a proud Jeep dealer serving Staten Island, we receive a lot of questions about how to prepare for an off-road trek.

Fortunately, you don’t always need a new Jeep SUV or RAM truck to adventure off the beaten path. There are a variety of ways that you can prepare your vehicle for an off-road adventure. That said, between gear and maintenance, preparing for the trail can be somewhat overwhelming, especially for beginners. 

For starters, tires are a key piece of equipment to pay attention to before taking to the trail. We always advocate that off-road drivers purchase tires with deep tread, or are designed specifically for off-roading. Your tires help you grip the varying terrain and help you stay safe. 

A skid plate serves as even greater protection from rocks and other debris. Positioned at the bottom of your car, a skid plate will take the brunt of any undercarriage damage and protect essential vehicle components.

Additionally, we recommend bringing along a number of essential tools to ensure a safe and ready experience:

  • Work light
  • Tire repair kit
  • Air compressor
  • Jump starter
  • Hand tools
  • Work gloves

These are just a few of the ways in which you can prepare your vehicle for off-roading. Our team at Brooklyn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM can help you get ready and give you further advice on how to tackle the trail when you give us a call or a visit. Off-roading can be a thrilling experience, and with our help, a safe one too.
