St. George Off-Road Accessories

Underrated St. George Off-Road Accessories

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to talk about a few of the most underrated St. George off-road accessories. This unconventional off-road accessory list first appeared in Popular Mechanics “10 most Underrated Off-Road Accessories” back in the summer of 2017. While lift kits, tires, wheels, and winches are the foundation of what we carry at our off-road accessory store in St. George, the following off-road accessories are noteworthy additions to have with you for whatever you may find out on the trail.

Folding Shovel

You may not consider this your typical off-road accessory, but a folding shovel is your number one tool if you find yourself stuck out in the middle of nowhere. If you need a shovel that will fit in smaller spaces go with a folding shovel, for a shovel that’s heavier duty go with a short D shovel.

Traction ramps are one of the most underrated, yet invaluable off road accessories you can have with you when you’re hitting the trails. These handy little traction mats will help you get unstuck without the help of another vehicle, if for some reason you find yourself on a low traffic off-road trail. Just as the Popular Mechanics article states “ There’s a reason you see traction ramps mounted to the roof racks of expedition vehicles—they work.”

48″ Hi-Lift Black Cast and Steel Jack

Cheap jacks just won’t cut it on the open trails. Not only is the quality steel jack durable, it also has multipurpose uses, It can be used as a hand winch, spreader, or clamper. The Hi-Lift (originally called the Automatic Combination Tool or Handyman Jack) has been one of the most popular tools for 4WD enthusiasts since the hobby began.

Another important St. George off-road accessory to have on hand is an air compressor. Any veteran of off-road trailblazing knows that after a long day on “the roads less traveled”, i.e., rocks and dirt, you’ll need to put some air back into your tires. Keeping an air compressor like this one that is powered by your truck or another 12 volt power source is one of the smartest things you can do.

 

Craftsman Tool BagSt. George Off-Road Accessories

The more extreme the trail, the more likely things are to loosen, fall off, and in some cases, break. For these reasons, it’s always a good idea to have some type of tool bag readily available. Additionally, it’s essential to pack vehicle and terrain specific gear. It doesn’t hurt to carry engine oil, a multitool, a tire-plug kit, and a container of WD-40. It might also be wise to bring along various sizes of rope, wire and tape.

You can find the complete list of underrated off-road accessories, here.

The Top Five Off-Road Vehicles for 2018

Do you dream of off road adventures, free of paved roads and never ending horizons? Do you need a vehicle that is rugged enough to handle unknown terrain and conquer unforeseen obstacles? Even though it’s common knowledge that today’s 4x4s don’t pack quite the same punch as their predecessors did 10+ years ago, today’s models will still allow you to enjoy the road less traveled-and in style, no less. The five off road vehicles we’ve rounded up can be found on countless lists all over the internet. We decided to stick to just five of the best options available (and yes, that includes the infamous Jeep Wrangler) because at the end of the day it’s about quality, not quantity.

 

Colorado ZR2Off-Road Vehicle

A smaller substitute to the Ford F-150 Raptor (another awesome off-road vehicle), the Colorado ZR2 is just one of the many special editions created for Chevy Colorado. Designed for the Raptor and Tacoma TRD crowd, the ZR2 features a wider wheelbase, upgraded suspension, electronic locking rear and front differentials, and driver controlled traction control. This capable midsize off-road truck has an available Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine,standard 3.6L V6 engine with best-in-class horsepower, as well as hard-core gear and segment-exclusive components.

As the most capable member of the Ram 1500 family, the Ram Rebel means series business. The Rebel has a distinctive front grille, that incorporates a dynamic hourglass body design, with steel bumpers and black inserts for an overall aggressive concept. This beast of an off road vehicle, offers a full frame with independent front suspension and a solid rear axle – to handle any off road terrain. Air suspension in all four corners supplies better highway gas mileage and unsurpassed off road ground clearance.The Ram Rebel is offered in either a crew or quad cab design. Both options possess standard V6 power (with optional V8 engine), skid plates, and 33 inch Goodyear tires.

Land Rover Range RoverOff Road Vehicle

Since the original model’s first debut in England in 1970, the Range Rover has continued to seamlessly combine luxury and off-road capability throughout the years. Choosing a Range Rover as your off-road vehicle is a bit of an investment upfront, but definitely worth the extra dough in the end. Starting at $84,000 this sleek off-road king offers off-road enthusiasts pure off-road power and better fuel economy then past models. The latest models are constructed from weight-saving aluminum and come with smaller engines, thus making them more efficient on mileage. Other off-road features you’ll enjoy include,  2.93:1 low-range gearing, optional locking rear differential (great for climbing), adjustable and long travel air suspension, and a computer-controlled Terrain Response four-wheel drive system. Additionally, the Land Rover Range Rover can be raised on it’s springs for over a foot of ground clearance.

Toyota 4Runner TRD ProOff Road Vehicle

If there’s one thing Toyota excels at, it’s always offering the public an off-road vehicle that has outstanding off-road capabilities, the Toyota TRD Pro is no exception to this rule. Where the TRD lacks in efficiency as daily driver it makes up for in primo off-road features, such as the Fox Racing shocks you’ll find in all 2019 models.

The TRD model comes equipped with Toyota’s Crawl control (off road cruise control)which  make this a mountain climbing juggernaut. The taller Eibach coil suspension adds an extra inch of wheel travel, which can make all the difference. Being able to tackle desert trails and climb mountains, makes the reasonable starting price of $43, 000 totally worth it.

 

The Jeep Wrangleroff road vehicle

As one of the most iconic off-road vehicles in America, no list would be complete without the Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler is one of the most affordable, adept, and most fun off-road 4x4s, and is a great option for many motorists who may wish to make modifications in the future. (stock Jeeps can still handle off-road trails).

Most off-road enthusiasts opt for the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which features “rugged 33-inch tires, an 84.1:1 crawl ratio and easily accessible switches for engaging 4×4 capabilities, the Rubicon is tailor-made for all kinds of boundary-breaking experiences”.

Jeep has created a more urban friendly design with their fourth generation models, delivering comfortable handling and better visibility, including blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alerts.

A 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon will only set you back about $41, 445.

Not All Spray on Truck Bedliners Were Created Equal

You want your off road vehicle to play as hard as you do, but without the damage can could result. Many truck manufacturers will claim that their trucks were created for both smooth daily driving and off road adventures, however, few trucks come stock with the necessary features to handle the daily abuse that often happens with truck beds. This is why investing in a premium spray on truck bed liner is crucial to extending the life and look of your beloved off road vehicle. At Red Desert Off Road, we don’t mess around with subpar bed liners that will end up cracking after just a few years. As off road enthusiasts ourselves, we are proud to carry Line-X Spray on Bedliners at our Southern Utah showroom which carry a lifetime warranty against any cracking, bubbling, and flaking

Line-X bed liners have quickly become the gold standard for truck bed protection over the last decade. The marriage of continual development and superior science has resulted in a bed liner that is 300% stronger than ever before. Created to deliver a consistent coating of at least 125 mils throughout the entire truck bed liner and hold up against extreme environmental conditions, Line-X has redefined spray on truck bed liners forever.

Line-X offers a broad variety of bed liners to fit all of your needs, this includes our Line-X Xtra line that offers color match technology, so you can customize your rig however you see fit. Browse our selection of bed liners below, to see what spray on truck bed liner fits the bill.

Line-X Premium

Unlike spray on truck bed liners of the past, the Line-X Premium bed liner combines impact and abrasion protection, as well as UV protection to ensure your bed liner looks brand new even after years of wear and tear. Carrying Line-X’s Nationwide Lifetime Warranty and engineered with the same material that has protected the Pentagon, these spray on truck bed liners are naturally resistant to most chemicals, such a gasoline, diesel fuel, chlorine, bleach and other household solvents.

Line-X Renew

Whether you use your truck as a casual daily driver, a workhorse, or an off road adventure machine, factory bed liners can take a beating-this is where Line-X Renew comes into play. Line-X Renew was created to repair and enhance other spray on truck bed liners to create an almost identical match to the original Line-X spray on bed liner. Upgrade your current, fragile bed liner to a superior bed liner without the need to completely strip the old bed liner.

Line-X XTRA

At Red Desert, we disagree that bed liners have to be a “boring old black color”, that’s why we are thrilled to carry Line-X’s latest creation-Line-X XTRA. These spray on truck bed liners feature Color Match technology, which enable you to choose from a wide range of styles and customization solutions. Through a “hot process” Line-X will match the color of your choosing for your spray on liner.
