Off Road Accessories
Off road car owners are usually more preoccupied with their model's technical performances than with its beauty and style, but some attention to details, especially if they can boost the overall performance a little, it's nevertheless necessary.
Some of the most popular car accessories for off-road cars are: car snorkels, nerf bars, recovery winches, hi-lift jacks, road armor bumpers and even trasharoos. If you are familiar with off road cars, then all those terms won't seem very strange, but if you just bought such a model and wonder what you could do to improve it, then you might find all these words sounding like a different language.
First, when you go on a trip in a bumpy area where roads are scarce and not in very good shape, the most important thing to keep in mind is your safety. This means that you should try to be prepared for most things that could happen.
For example, if you need to cross shallow waters it's important to keep the water from the most important places, so you'll need a car snorkel. This is mostly a long tube pointed upwards that will stay above water level all the time and allow the air intake. Also, the snorkel is a very good accessory for dryer climate, so the particles of sand and dust won't choke your engine.
Nerf bars and road armor bumpers are also very useful, especially when you cross a very difficult terrain with slopes and piles of dirt. This way the car parts won't get affected and its vitals will stay clear of danger.
You must expect that even the well-made off road car can get stuck or worse. Nature and rough terrain can be a deadly combination to a lonely driver. So, in order to get yourself out of trouble when it happens, the recovery winches and hi-lift jacks are a very good choice.
When you're on your little safari trip in an off road car, expect to have unexpected luggage to carry. You might need to take with you some fire wood, especially if you know that your next stop for the night will be in a deserted place with no trees. Or, maybe that the river next to your camp got higher overnight and you clothes got all wet. Or, being such a good friend to nature you can't bear to leave your garbage in the middle of nowhere. Any one of these situations calls for a trasharoo. This way, everything you want out of your car, will just be hanging securely outside.
