The essential 4×4 accessories every die-hard off-road enthusiast should have
Most people love personalising their 4x4s to some degree. Off-roaders, and 4×4 owners in particular, enjoy adding accessories and gadgets to their cars, augmenting their enjoyment of their vehicles. While some of these 4×4 accessories can be very helpful in difficult conditions, or just help you get through the trail easier, others are pointless and unnecessary. So, how do you know which 4×4 accessories will add value to your off-road adventure, and which will just take up valuable space? We have listed a few essential accessories every off-roader should have on hand to help navigate the exciting, yet challenging trails South Africa is so well-known for. Let us take a look at some items that are sure to contribute to a great day out on the trail.
If your floodlights or portable fridge ends up draining the battery, a decent quality pair of jumper cables can help get your 4×4 going again. Even if you have jumper cables you will need another vehicle to draw power from to start your vehicle. If no other vehicles are travelling with you, consider buying a booster pack or spare battery.
There will come a time during your off-road adventures that you will need to deflate your 4×4’s tyres to traverse sand. This also means you will have to inflate them again. You do not need an expensive compressor, but just make sure its capacity allows it to push a minimum of 35 litres of air per minute, or else it will take an eternity to inflate those 4×4 tyres. If you are using a small compressor, allow it a short break every five minutes or so to cool down. Be sure to never to damage the electrical cord when the compressor is stored, otherwise you may find that it does not work when you need it most.
Always carry a toolbox in your 4×4 with all the most important tools for roadside repairs. Assemble your own, comprehensive, emergency toolkit for the road. A good toolkit should contain everything you would need to fix the things you are able to fix on the road. At least then you have a better chance of getting your car out of the wild and to a repair shop where it can be properly seen to. A good mechanical aptitude will come in handy too!
