When it comes to off-roading, you can’t beat a Jeep® vehicle, and one of the best off-roaders in the lineup is the Jeep Wrangler. With its standard four-wheel drive, transfer case, tow hooks, and skid plates, you can take this SUV almost anywhere. However, before you go on your off-road adventure, it is important to be prepared, and this means checking key areas, including:

Tires

Because your tires play such an important role – and will probably be rolling over some gnarly terrain – you have to make sure they’re in good shape. Pay attention to the tread depths and check their pressure to ensure it is at the right levels. Also, don’t forget about looking at the spare.

Fluids

Be sure to check all of the fluids in your vehicle to see that they are at the proper levels. These include the coolant, brake, transmission, windshield washer, and power steering fluids.

Shocks

The shocks are probably going to take a beating during your travels, so be sure to look at them closely before you go. Check to see if there is any damage or signs of a leak.

Belts and Hoses

Again, you’ll want to give all belts and hoses a good visual inspection to gauge their condition. If you notice any issue, get the necessary repair or replacement.
