There are a number of modifications that many people want to make to their Jeep, either because they think it looks cool or because they heard someone else got one and it worked for them. However, there are just five modifications that every off roader needs on their Jeep before they take it to do some serious off roading.

  1. Winch. The winch is the single most important upgrade you will ever make to your Jeep. If you plan on going off roading with friends, a winch can keep them out of the ditch and on the road (or lack thereof). Everyone who goes off roading should have a winch to help out buddies on the same terrain. There are some situations that only a winch can get you out of. If a Jeep rolls a winch is the only way to salvage it. A winch could get you home, or get a buddy home, or tow a stranger home in the snow. You never know when it will come in handy.
  2. Choose appropriate Jeep tires for the type of off roading you will be doing. Keep in mind that if you get a tire much bigger than your stock tires you will have to retool the gear differential. This is not as expensive or difficult as it sounds, so don’t be worried. Also keep in mind that if you are getting a lift, you will need bigger tires for certain, so plan accordingly.
  3. The jeep lift is one of the first things all off roaders think to do to their Jeep, and rightly so. A lift increases clearance. This means you can drive over bigger stuff without getting stuck. It also means you can drive through some water sources without getting wet, such as a small creek. The type of lift you get will depend on the type of off roading you want to do. Choose carefully, as this is an expensive modification that you only want to do once.
  4. Rock rails come standard on the Rubicon model of Wrangler, but for any other Jeep you plan on taking off road this is a must have upgrade. It protects your vehicle from so many things, not just rocks. Heck, it will even protect your Jeep from people who open their door too wide. It also acts as an extra step, which is good if you got a lift and aren’t that tall.
  5. Differential lockers are also an important upgrade that comes standard on the Rubicon model. Lockers cause both wheels to spin identically, improving traction in low traction settings, such as snow, ice, or mud.

Tires can be one of the most important purchases you make for your Jeep. With so many different styles, sizes and treads available the choices can be a bit overwhelming. This is why it is important to know what kinds of demands you will be putting on the tires you choose. There are many tires that offer you all weather traction and others that were designed for basic city driving, but if you plan to use your Jeep for off roading, there are many more choices you will be faced with.

If you are like many Jeep drivers your primary use will be as a daily vehicle with the occasional trip to the woods. If this describes your Jeep you will want to choose a tire that was designed to perform well at high speeds but will also give you the traction and performance necessary for mild to moderate to off roading. All-Terrain tires would be adequate for this form of driving. All-Terrain tires are generally quiet and will perform well at high speeds related to highway driving. They also feature enough tread to be able to function on an off road trail.

If the primary use of your Jeep will be for off road use then you will need to choose tires that offer you the necessary amount of tread for the type of terrain you will be driving on. If your favorite type of off roading is done on mud or sand you will need tires that were designed for that type of driving. There are many different models available for this type of off roading, choose a model that will give you the best traction and control possible.

If you prefer snow or ice driving, then your choices will be limited to models designed primarily for that type of terrain. Many ice driving tires feature spikes that are meant to give the driver better traction and control. Snow tires are designed for use mainly on snowy terrain but can also be used in moderate icy conditions. Whichever model is right for your type of driving always buy the correct size of tire for your vehicle.

As many experienced Jeep off-roaders are aware, not all off road tires are created equally. With so many selections to choose from, it may be a bit overwhelming for anyone who is not as familiar with the different tire types. We are going to try and make it a little easier for the newbies to find the right type of tire for their adventures.

First of all, it is important to know what type of terrain you will be primarily using your tires on. If you are going to be driving your vehicle primarily in muddy terrain, you will want to choose a tire that was designed to be used in that situation, specifically one that has a tread design that was designed to be used on mud and dirt. It is also important to keep in mind that if you have a lift kit installed on your Jeep it will affect the size of the tires that you can use.

If you plan to use your Jeep on snow and ice, choosing a tire that features spikes will offer you better traction when you are on ice. You shouldn’t use these types of tires on the road; it can damage them and render them useless in some cases. Having tires that were designed to be used specifically in winter conditions will help to keep you safe and give you the stability that is needed on this type of terrain.

If you are just planning to use your vehicle for fun and drive it primarily on dirt and gravel, there are many tires to choose from. Depending on how rough the terrain is and what it consists of your tire needs will differ. If you are unsure of what type will best suit the needs of your outdoor adventure, it is best to consult with an expert in the field. They can tell you what you need and what will be the best fit for your situation. Having the right tire on your Jeep will help you get the most out of your off-roading experience.

When choosing the right tires for your Jeep there are a few things you will want to take into immediate attention – How you use your Jeep, How you intend to use your Jeep, and the types of terrain you will be using your Jeep on. The weather of your location can also play a factor in which tires are best for your Jeep, especially if you live in the northern states where you are guaranteed snow and ice.

Secondary factors to consider are how much driving you do and how much you can afford to spend on tires. If you have invested a lot of time and money on your Jeep to enhance its drivability in all terrains, then you will want to make sure the tires live up to the expectations you have of your Jeep.

It is a well-known fact that the bigger the tire you purchase the higher the price tag, so consider that as well when searching out the perfect tires for your Jeep. Granted, the bigger the tire you get the better traction you get as well as increased ground clearance. Increased ground clearance of course equals more trail obstacle you can conquer.
