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 AccessoriesAdding a lift kit to your Jeep, is really the first step in modifying your Jeep so that it’s off-road ready. Depending on your desired style and lift, you can choose from 2.5” and up to 6.5” lift kits at our off-road accessory store in St. George. 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. Their quality performance at a fair price is just one of the reasons we are proud to offer these lift kits. Addition brands we offer include, Mopar, BDS Suspension, Pro Comp Suspension, Rubicon Express, Rancho Suspension, TeraFlex, and Skyjacker Suspension. If you’re not sure what lift kit will offer the proper clearance for the tires you want to “jack” up your ride or which type of lift kit will suit your style, one of our experts will help you in this process when you stop in at Red Desert Off-Road.

Bumpers

St. George Off-Road AccessoriesThough your Jeep may already come with both front and rear bumpers, you’re going to want to invest in some sturdier bumpers. The sad plastic, factory bumpers aren’t really good for anything, except for looks-which are mediocre at best. Once you’ve purchased your Jeep you’ll want to find some heavy duty bumpers from your local St. George off-road accessory store. Adding higher quality, durable bumpers to your new Jeep will protect you from potential collisions and the rough off-road terrain. Red Desert offers an online Interactive Garage, so that you can see how the bumpers will look on your Jeep. We offer the following bumper brands for Jeeps:

  • Addictive Desert Designs
  • ARB
  • Bestop
  • Fab Fours (Full Metal Jacket, Vengeance, Lifestyle)
  • Hanson Offroad
  • Poison Spyder (Brawler Lite, Brawler MID)
  • Pure Jeep
  • Rampage
  • Rough Country
  • SmittyBilt
  • TeraFlex
  • WARN

Tires

St. George Off-Road AccessoriesMore 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

St. George Off-Road AccessoriesEven 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.

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.
