As a new Jeeper or off-roader it can be very overwhelming trying to figure out what to buy and where to start. So I decided to share the five basics Off-Road Accessories to get you started.
First and foremost, if you decide to take your Jeep off-road you should always have an Off-Road Recovery Kit.

|Airing Up after a Day on the Trails|
If you plan on doing a little, or a lot of off-roading, no matter what terrain you wheel on, you most likely will be airing down your tires. Having a set of tire deflators makes this job much easier. I use the JT Brooks Tire Deflators. They come in a set of four so you can air down all 4 tires at the same time.
When you are out on the trails you never want to go alone. Most likely you will be with others in a group. Communication is the key to a great time out on the trails. It’s a good idea to remain in contact with the group so a good CB Radio comes in handy
Safety out on the trails is important. A good fire extinguisher paramount. This should be considered standard gear for any rig that goes off road. You are so far away from any help, it could prove to be beneficial in an emergency. There are a ton of mounting options however, I like mine mounted on the roll bars near the back windows. All I need to do is unzip the window to access my fire extinguisher.
Finally, number 5 - grab handles. I have two different kinds in my Jeep. A set on the A pillar and a set on the roll bar. The Wild Boar grab handles are great when you have a lifted Jeep and need to get into your Jeep. Super sturdy and durable.
The EK Sports grab handles on my roll bar are perfect when you are bouncing down those bumpy trails. Plus, they come in a variety of colors. As you can see mine are purple
There is so many more off-road accessories out there, but but this will give you a great start.
