Must-Have Jeep Off Road Preparedness Gear

Being Prepared Makes for a Better Time

1st Time OffRoad

When I became a Jeep owner back in 2013, I suddenly became overwhelmed with all the different accessories you could buy for your Jeep. Then, once I realized you could modify your Jeep, I didn’t know which direction to go.

Lessons Learned

In the years since, I have learned quite a bit from my experience, online research, and stories shared by other Jeepers.  Knowing where to start is the first step. There is so much out there, it’s good to have the basics to build upon.

Here are some starting points that you can build upon to have the necessary tools and equipment in your Jeep when you take it out on the trails. 

5 Must Have to Be Prepared for Off-Roading

This doesn’t include everything, but a good place to start and build upon.

#1 Road Safety Kit

This should automatically be in your Jeep even if you don’t go off-roading. Some of the items in this kit are jumper cables, a jack, a lug nut wrench, road flares/glow sticks/warning triangle, fire extinguisher, tools for repairs, personal knife, Duct Tape, Tarp, Nylon Rope,   and First Aid Kit.  

#2 Airing Down/Up Kit

Tire Deflators, Tire Gauge, and Air compressor are the main items in this kit. I love my Tire deflators from J.T. Brooks. I just ordered the pro-series. The Air Compressor is a good idea if when you air down there is no place near to air up.

#4 Off-Road Shoes

The right kind of shoes are important when you are out on the trails. I like my Merrell hiking shoes when I am out on the rocks or in the woods. A pair of rain/mud boots are good for when the trails are wet and muddy. Other personal items to have is a change of clothes, sunscreen, bug spray, chapstick, raincoat, 

#5 Tool Box 

When you off road you never know when you will break down or even a friend could break down. It's good to carry the necessary tools for trail fixes.
