Accessories for Your Off Roader
South Africa has many off-road trails that criss-cross our beautiful landscape. Consequently, there is a thriving community of 4×4 enthusiasts who rise to the challenge. Camping is also a popular hobby for those who love spending time in nature. However, to thoroughly enjoy your journey through the wilderness, you need proper gear. Camping gear is as varied as all the ways people like to camp. When it comes to your vehicle, we offer a variety of accessories to enhance the functionality of your off-roader.
Echo 4×4 Centre specialises in off-road caravans, motorhomes, trailers, tents, and all manner of vehicle accessories to enhance your experience when heading into the wilderness. Our gear can elevate your camping experiences and off-roading adventures to make them more enjoyable. Your vehicle is the most important part of your off-road holiday, so fitting it with the right accessories for off-roading will further enhance its ability to handle rough terrain. Today, we will glance at our selection and how these products can add useful functionality to your vehicle.
Taking Your 4×4 To the Next Level
Four-wheel-drive bakkies and SUVs are a common sight in South Africa. Originally, bakkies were used by farmers and people living outside towns and cities to handle gravel roads. Double-cab bakkies have since become daily drivers for locals and SUVs have joined them. They are also used as trailblazers by off-road enthusiasts. Our selection of accessories can take your vehicle to a whole new level of functionality when conquering rough roads. With a car that is nearly unstoppable, you can go almost anywhere and you can reach those desirable camping spots much easier.
Starting with some of the most effective and basic off-roading equipment, we offer roof racks for your vehicle. Some people dislike roof racks, but it is probably because they have never needed or used them. You will never need a roof rack if you just drive around town. However, if you use it as intended, a roof rack adds useful extra storage space to your 4×4. The Dakar rally participants don’t have roof racks for nothing! They can house spare wheels, various large tools, equipment, and rooftop tents. With another place on your vehicle being used for storage, you can bring even more gear on your camping trips.
Another basic and very important aspect of any 4×4 vehicle is its suspension. Reinforced suspension will allow for more durability and suspensions systems can be customised in various ways, one of the most popular being to raise it. A raised ride height will give your vehicle increased ground clearance to effectively drive over rocks and undulating terrain. Suspension accessories can dramatically improve the way your vehicle deals with uneven roads and rough terrain. We also offer under-body protection to keep your car’s underbody from sustaining damage when straddling a middelmannetjie or dropping a wheel into a ditch.
Any 4×4 enthusiast will tell you that one of the most important accessories on their vehicle is the winch. This nifty piece of equipment can be used for a plethora of applications in the wilderness, not just extricating a stuck vehicle. Since your vehicle is large and heavy, the winch is anchored by the weight, from which it can generate pulling force. This force can be used to tow someone else’s car out of a tough situation. It can also be used to fell small trees in your path. The power of a winch can be used in almost any manner that you see fit.
