Not every car is prepared for the rough terrain of off-roading, however, almost any vehicle can be modified to take on the trail with the right tools and expertise. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we’re home to some pretty serious off-road enthusiasts and will help you get your car ready at our Jeep, Dodge, RAM, and Chrysler parts center.
So what does it take to make your vehicle ready for an off-road outdoor adventure? Well, first on your list should be a beefy set of tires, and not just any set of tires, off-road tires. Off-road tires are specifically designed to handle the ever-changing terrain of the outdoors, and withstand the brunt of some pretty serious obstacles. Off-road tires tend to have a deeper treat too so that they can ensure better traction on surfaces like snow, ice, rain, and mud.
If you’ve ever seen a Jeep Wrangler forge through a gushing stream, part of how that was made possible is thanks to a trusty snorkel. Snorkels can be attached to your exhaust to keep water from flooding into your engine and grounding you permanently. It is a fairly simple modification, that can really expand where you go and how much your vehicle can handle.
Last on our list, is skid plates. Skid plates are your best friend when you’re out in the wilderness. Installed to the underside of your car, skid plates are intended to protect sensitive components from dirt and debris that may harm them. They can also come in handy if you’re trying to overtake a particularly challenging obstacle, and risk scratching the underbelly of your vehicle.
These are just some of our favorite modifications at Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Avenel, NJ. If you’re looking to get our full list, our parts experts and technicians are more than willing to give you the scoop.
