Tips for Off-Roading

  1. 1. Sit up high to see as much of the upcoming terrain as possible. Nothing is worse than hitting a rough patch unprepared.
  2. 2. Engage all-wheel drive or switch to a center differential as soon as you reach the trail. This adds another set of gears the engine power must go through, slowing down your wheels. Sounds boring, but this is what allows you to have more steady power to climb over things like boulders.
  3. 3. Lower your tire pressure to increase traction and surface area for soft surfaces.
  4. 4. Bring tow-straps and floor mats in case you get stuck. For less serious jams, placing high-traction mats under each tire can get you out of a bind.
  5. 5. This is the greatest incline a vehicle can travel over without hitting any part against the terrain. Knowing this will prevent you from damaging your vehicle.
  6. 6. Check current depths if crossing a body of water.
  7. 7. Saw your Steering wheel back and forth to create traction when it’S loSt.
