Please Remember that 4 wheel drive is only one of the many tools you need to go off-road, but there are many other tools and techniques you can use.

  1. Air Down: (if you are at 30 psi to make a track pattern that will actually help you take it down to 15 psi on a alloy rim. Steel rims you can run as low as 8 psi depending on the width of the rim and size. Steel wheels tend to hold the bead a lot better.
  2. Traction Boards: Although there are a lot of different boards out there and they vary on price I would recommend you throw a set in your rig. “Better to have and not use, then not have them at all”.
  3. Air Down Tool: The most handy little tool you will have in you rig .
  4. Good tow strap: you will never know when you need a tug but that one person might see you on the trail and not have a strap so always be prepared with one.
  5. Air compressor.
