Jeeps have become increasingly popular in recent years with the growing interest in outdoor activity participation. This is especially true in regions like the North West United States, in Alaska, or even regions of Canada. When you are out in the wilderness or a cold tundra or climbing in mountainous areas you and your jeep need to be ready for any obstacles you may find yourselves facing.
Here’s a list of 9 Jeep accessories that all, Jeep owning, outdoor enthusiast’s should have.
Lift kits (It’s a necessity)
When you are out and you run over some steep bumps and rocks, lift kits are a great help when it comes to going into rough territory. It keeps your undercarriage from getting ruined as well as preserving the lifespan of your skid plate.
If climbing rocks is your main interest then look to “Rough Country X Series” suspension which comes in a 4” and a 6” lift. This lift gives you a ton of clearance and great suspension. Both, to help you handle the toughest of terrains. This suspension also goes well with a set of “ 20” BFGoodrich – KM2” tires which are strong and durable tires that are perfect for off road conditions. These would be a great addition to your list of Jeep Accessories.
Spare Tires (Gotta Have it!)
This particular accessory is a “no brainer.” A good spare tire is not an option. All drivers should have a spare tire when owning a vehicle of any kind. You may be out climbing in the back hills over sharp rocks or you may be driving your child to school in your hometown. Either way, if you blow a tire, you should always have a spare in your arsenal of jeep accessories (Jeep et al.). It is recommended that you make sure your spare tire is part of the “set” that is on the car. Really, all cars come with a set of five tires, not four, and with the exception of the ridiculous “donut spare”, they all match and should throughout the lifetime of your Jeep.
When it comes to Jeep tires it comes down to what you are trying to achieve. If you plan on climbing rocks and really getting your Jeep dirty, you’ll more than likely want to have a lift kit between 2”-6” as well as a set of larger tires. It all depends on your preference.
You never know when you will be needing one, this is a great item to have in your pool of Jeep Accessories.
