If You Need Off-Road Parts, St. George’s Red Desert Off-Road Has What You Need

Any vehicle should be equipped with the ability to handle basic daily commutes and even some well-traveled dirt roads here and there. For most people, this is all they need from their vehicle – but if you’re reading this right now, you probably need something more than the basics. Off-roaders need to know their vehicle has what it takes to brave off-road trails (or lack thereof). 

If you live in St. George, off-road parts can be pretty easy to come by, but Red Desert Off-Road has products you can truly rely on.

Suspension & Lift

You know virtually any stock vehicle is going to end up beaten and bloody if you used it on less traveled trails or untraveled terrain, and one reason for this is the lack of proper suspension and lift.

Off-Road Parts St. George

The lift of a vehicle is the foundation of a vehicle’s build. The right lift can accommodate the large, tough tires you need for off-roading. It will also give your vehicle the ground clearance it needs to avoid large bumps, rocks, sage brush, and other obstacles that a stock vehicle can’t handle. 

Also called a “leveling kit”, a lift provides a spacer to the normal suspension of stock vehicles so you can get the ground clearance and tire space you need.

Beyond your average leveling kit, there is also the complete suspension lift, which allows your vehicle to use even larger tires and stronger upgraded components, as well as giving you more ground clearance. They also give you an even smoother ride.

You can get the suspension and lift for your off-road vehicle at our St. George off-road accessories store.

Tires

When it comes to off-road tires and other off-road parts, St. George stores like Red Desert Off-Road offer the equipment you need.

All Terrain Tires

Off-Road Parts St. George

As you can probably tell by the name, these tires are some of the most common tires people choose for their off-road vehicles. It makes sense, then, that there is a wide variety of all terrain tires to choose from. 

All terrain tires are equipped with large grooves, allowing them to handle moderate off-road conditions (as well as everyday commutes) far easier. They will give you durability and endurance. 

Extreme Mud Terrain/Rock Climbing Tires

These tires involve extreme and aggressive treads extending to the sidewalls for optimal traction. They’re also more puncture resistant than most tires. They can handle some of the toughest off-road conditions.

In this day and age, transportation is an indispensable component of our lives; moving about by air, land, and sea. Transportation is so important; it’s actually an indivisible component, or sector, of financial exchanges. Planes, shipping, rail, and trucks are all amazing means of moving anything to and from anywhere, at any time, for any reason. The primary purpose is to relocate people and products. Specifically, trucks, which come in all styles, sizes, shapes, and power, seamlessly traverse the roads of the world (and “off”) delivering things from one place to another, facilitating the demands of mankind. Trucks exist in basically 2 forms, utility vs pleasure. Utility encompasses payload hauling, and work functions; while pleasure is flavor, feel, and fun. Part of that pleasure arrangement is gaming and adventure … “off-road” excitement.

Getting Your Truck Ready for Spring

Winter is nearing its end (hopefully), which means that it’s time to perform some general maintenance duties to your off-road truck. During the winter months, our rides can take a beating, from freezing temperatures to bad roads, chances are your truck could use a tune up. Additionally, for many truck owners, the end of winter signals the return of the work season and if you haven’t’ done so yet, you may need to outfit your rig with some truck accessories in St. George to further protect and maintain your truck. The following guide can be used as a checklist to make sure that you’ve done all the basics required to get your truck ready for the next season, alongside some truck accessories you may want to consider getting to both improve the look and performance of your truck.

Get Your Truck Ready for Spring: Under The Hood

truck accessories St. George

Before diving into the washing and waxing portion of getting your truck ready for the warmer months, you’ll want to make sure that all systems are running smoothly, this includes, but is not limited to:

  • Checking the oil. Even if your a change-the-oil-every-three-months type of person, one of the most important things you can do during this time of year is to check this vital lubricant. If it’s running low, top it off. If you’re in desperate need of an oil change either go to your local shop or do it yourself to save a few bucks.
  • Check your wiper fluid. For many of us, especially off-roaders, we need to make sure we have enough wiper fluid to get rid of dirt, debris, mud, etc, that seems to pile up the most during the spring and summer months, so make sure you have enough wiper fluid. You can also just put water in the reservoir, but general blue wiper fluid works better to keep your windshield clean.
  • Change the air filter. Protect your engine by changing out the air filter to prevent dust and other debris from getting into the combustion chambers of the cylinders. Similarly, changing your air filter reduces gas waste. You can find out more information about how to change your truck’s filters, here.
  • Go to a professional. If your truck’s been acting “funny” you may want to take it to a professional to see if there are any other issues going on As the old adage goes, “better safe, than sorry”.

Outside Maintenance

On the outside of your truck there will most certainly be items you need to check and/or change. A common St. George truck accessory that needs to be changed as the seasons do, are tires. Most truck drivers have opted for winter tires, so around this time is generally when you want to switch back to your spring or summer tires. If you need new tires, stop by our off-road accessory store in St. George to see the different tires we keep in stock. In addition to changing your tires this season, you’ll want to:

  • Check tire pressure and balance. If you don’t need to change out your tires, it’s important at this time to check the pressure and get them balanced if needed. Also be sure to check for wear and tear, such as cracks or threads showing; it’s never fun to have a tire blowout while on a job or out on the trails.
  • Replace wiper blades. Wiper blades are one of those St. George truck accessories that are usually forgotten about until it becomes a problem. Wiper blades get worn out during the winter months due to ice and snow and are a necessary piece of equipment during spring when you can never be sure what the weather may do.

Truck Accessories in St. George to Consider

truck accessories St. George

Once you’ve made sure that your truck is running properly and all the truck accessories you currently have are in tip-top shape, you may want to consider adding the following truck accessories if you don’t already have them or even think about upgrading if you do. These include:

  • Truck Bed Liner – Red Desert Off-Road is proud to provide our customers with only the highest quality truck bed liners created by LINE-X. This is an essential St. George truck accessory that you don’t want to go without.
  • Off-Road Lighting – High quality lighting for your truck is a non-negotiable. Not only does it keep you safe, it keeps other people on the road safe by being able to clearly see you. If your lights aren’t up to par, it’s time to upgrade them.
  • Tonneau Cover – In addition to having a durable bed liner, another smart truck accessory to have is a tonneau cover, especially in the spring when you don’t know if it wants to rain, hail or snow on any given day.

Looking for something else? Red Desert has a variety of truck accessories in St. George, so if you need something else for your truck, stop in and see what we have or contact us today.

Spring Cleaning Your Truck

Whether you’re having your truck professionally detailed or doing it yourself, you’ll want to start with outside cleaning and maintenance. Getting your truck professionally detailed will cost around $100 or if you plan on cleaning your truck yourself, follow these instructions, as provided by this article from Reader’s Digest, to have your truck looking like new after the long winter:

  • Start from the bottom. To get your truck ready for warmer months start by hosing off the salt from the trucks underside. You can either do this at home with a garden hose or go to a brushless car wash that includes “undercarriage wash”.
  • Wash and wax your truck. Use a liquid or powder cleaner for the body and for tar and harder stains on the finish, use a strong formula that’s designed to remove stubborn spots without destroying the finish. Don’t use abrasives like steel wool
  • Clean your tires. Once you’ve either changed out your tires and/or had them checked for pressure and balanced, you’ll want to give the a good scrub down. Use a tire and wheel cleaner to the surface. Once finished, apply the cleaner to wheels, allowing the solution to set for a few moments and then use a clean paintbrush to remove any dirt and debris that may be stuck. Then rinse and dry with a microfiber towel.
  • Clean the cab. One reason it’s important to wash your truck first is so you can spray the door jams out and let them dry before you move onto cleaning the interior of your truck. Truck accessories in St. George, like floor mats and seats need to be shop vacuumed in order to remove excess dirt. Make sure to remove floor mats to get any dirt that is underneath. Additionally, you’ll want to use a foaming fabric and upholstery cleaner for cloth seats, spot-lifter or stain-remover products for carpeting, and to finish up, use Armour All for any sensitive surfaces.

How To Choose the Right St. George Tonneau Cover for Your Truck

When it comes to your truck or car, you want to make sure that you are taking the best possible care of it. Not only is your vehicle a great investment for your day to day life, it is also an expensive one. One way to ensure the safety of your vehicle in St. George is to invest in a tonneau cover. Tonneau covers come in different sizes, materials, and even colours. This can help a lot when it comes to trying to find the right Utah tonneau cover for your truck. The downside is that it can also make things more complicated if you are not sure what it is exactly that you are going to try to look for. Some things that can help you narrow the list down are:

  • How often you use your truck bed
  • Weather conditions where you live
  • Cost
  • How much security that it will need to provide

If you find yourself needing to use your truck bed a lot, getting a tonneau cover in St. George is a good idea. Having a tonneau cover is great for preventing mud and water from getting into your bed and ruining everything you are carrying around. It also helps to prevent theft, with some models of tonneau covers having things like locks while some even have the ability to be controlled by a remote. If you also use your truck bed to carry items that stick out over the edges of your truck bed, many models are easily retractable or removable so you can still carry larger loads if needed. When it comes time to choose your new tonneau cover in Utah, it is also important to factor in common weather conditions, such as snow and rain. While a soft cover may provide protection from the sun and more high wind conditions, heavy amounts of rain and snow may cause it to sag and weigh against what you are trying to carry in your truck bed. A hard cover panel cover tonneau may be best when it comes to looking around for your tonneau cover in St. George. Another thing to look at when you want to purchase your new tonneau cover is the cost of it. If you have more of a tight budget, or if you do not mind if you have to spend a larger amount for your cover, there is an option for everyone.

Types of St. George Tonneau Covers

St. George Tonneau Cover

Soft tonneau covers and roll-up covers are among the cheapest in price and still provide safety to items you want to transport, and safety from sun damage and rain. Hard panel tonneau covers and tonneau covers that come with special features such as locks tend to cost more on average, but provide more security and can be coloured to match your car and give a more sleek look. When you start to look at purchasing a tonneau cover for your truck in St. George, you will also want to think of how much security you are going to require. If you are looking for a tonneau cover that simply protects your truck bed from debris and wind, a tonneau cover with additional protection and security might not be the biggest priority for you. Although, if you carry things like expensive tools and other items you would not want to get stolen, a tonneau cover with a lock mechanism may be worth the additional cost in the long run. With all these things in mind, let’s look at the different type of tonneau covers Utah has to offer. Some of these Tonneau covers include:

  • Folding Covers – Made of either soft or hard material panels that have separate sections for easy folding. This is great if you still want to be able to use your truck bed to load larger items that will not fit with the cover on.
  • Roll-Up Covers – The covers are made in either hard or soft material and offer easy accessibility to your truck bed. They are also some of the more cheaper models offered.
  • Retractable Covers – Retractable covers are one of the easier models to use and can provide more security as well. Some retractable tonneau cover models even come with a remote so you can have easier access when you need it.
  • Hinged Covers – Hinged covers typically come in a hard material and can come with options like locks for extra security. This is not the most practical if you need constant easy access to your trunk bed for large items that are not able to fit in with the cover on, but offers a good amount of security for your truck.

Each of these varying types of tonneau covers all have something different that they have to offer. Tonneau covers can come in a soft material or a hard material. Both of these two types of materials that can be used on Tonneau covers in St. George and both have different qualities that can help you to match one that fits your truck bed cover needs.

Hardcover tonneau covers are usually made with materials like metal, fiberglass, plastic, and aluminum. Softcover tonneau covers are typically made with materials such as vinyl or canvas. It is also well worth noting that adding a tonneau cover to your St. George truck can help you to save a lot in the future when it comes to things like how much you spend on gas. The truck of your bed without a cover creates air resistance, which causes your engine to have to put more effort in which burns your gas faster. When you add a tonneau cover to your truck bed you help to stop the air resistance from working your engine more than it needs to be. This helps you to save money on the gas that you do not need to be wasting, and the money will add up. Adding a tonneau cover to your truck also helps to improve the general look and how sleek it is. Many of the hard covers can easily be designed to match the colour of your truck, which in turns gives your truck a nice, cool finished look. Having a tonneau cover can also help to cover up any dents or scratches that you may have on the sides of your truck bed and can help prevent your truck bed from getting further ruined from sun damage and other things.

When it comes to picking out your tonneau cover in Utah, you want to make sure you are getting the most use out of the money you are going to invest in the protection of your truck.

If you still have questions about what type of tonneau cover is right for you and your truck, contact Red Desert Off-Road today.

Whether it’s the latest model right off the lot or a used model, we’ll help you discover what off-road accessories in St. George will help you to get the most out of your Jeep. Let’s take a look!

St. George Off-Road Accessories for Your Jeep

If you’re a first time Jeep owner, you may feel overwhelmed navigating the big wide world of Jeeps. Many first time owners can get caught up in buying all the gadgets and gizmos you just “have to have”. That’s not what the following list of off-road accessories is about. While we do want to make sure that your Jeep is souped up enough for the toughest trails and maybe even causes a few heads to turn when you drive it around the city, we also don’t think you should have to spend every last dime on your Jeep. This cohesive list, provides just the essentials for making off-road trail blazing even more exciting.

Lift Kits

St. George off-road accessory store

Adding a lift kit to your Jeep, is really the first step in modifying your Jeep so that it’s off-road ready.

One of our favorite brands of lift kits for off-road vehicles is Rough Country. Rough Country lift kits allow you to run larger tires on your Jeep or Truck and offer a tougher look to any vehicle.

More often than not, if our customers are planning on taking their ride off-roading they want the tires that are going to be able to perform in some questionable situations (mud, sand, loose gravel, etc.). No matter if you’re in the market for 17” tires or 22” inch tires, it’s important to know what your end game is for your Jeep. If you plan on using your new ride as both a daily driver and off-road excursion wagon, you’ll want a less aggressive, street legal tire. If you plan on only using your Jeep as an off-road juggernaut, go for the more aggressive mud and off-road tires. An expert at our off-road accessory store in St. George can help you decide on the right set of tires and wheels if you’re ever unsure.

Fender Flares

If you’re planning on adding bigger tires to your Jeep, which is usually a must, Fender Flares will allow for even bigger tires, even with a lift kit. In order to accommodate the bigger tires, the fenders must be raised. Fender Flares are a both stylistically appealing and practical off-road accessory for your Jeep. We offer Fender Flares from Bushwacker, which offers a full line of fender flares. If you’re concerned about tire clearance you’ll want to go with flat style flares from Bushwacker. We also carry flares from Lund, Mopar, Poison Spyder Customs, Smittybilt, and Xenon.

Off-Road LED Lighting

Even though the difference between factory lighting is night and day-literally, this is a mod that few people think to change, simply because they don’t know any better. However, once you see the difference between LED (Light Emitting Diodes) you’ll never go back to the dim lights that came with your Jeep. In addition to both the high and low beam being twice as powerful as factory lights, LED lights use only about half of the amp draw! Having lights that work this effectively is vital when off-roading on unknown terrain in the dark with the only other lights being stars. At our St. George off-road accessory store we offer LED Grill Mounts, Head Lights, Taillights, as well as Grill, Hood, and Windshield mounted LED lights. You can find more information about the brands and additional sizes and styles we carry, here.

Undercarriage Protection

Few things are worse than off-roading in the middle of nowhere only to have your fuel tank gouged out by some mutant boulder. For this reason, we couldn’t exclude Undercarriage protection. Even if you’ve outfiited your beloved Jeep with a 6.5” lift kit, you may still need the additional protection. This is one St. George off-road accessory that is always worth it. We carry a variety of undercarriage protection from both Mopar and Rancho Suspension which include everything from Differential Covers, Front Control Arm Skids, to Oil Pan Protection covers.

Winches

Last on our list of essential off-road accessories, but definitely not least, is a Winch. Winches are the off-roaders best friend and have been know to pull countless off-road vehicles out of “sticky” situations. One of the best winch systems that we carry at our St. George off-road accessory store is the Zeon system by Warn. We also carry durable winch systems from Rough Country, Mopar and Smittybilt.
