Off-Road Driving

These basics of off-road driving will help you stay safe and keep your confidence, and they start with understanding your equipment.

Your Truck

What systems do you have for traction control? Some are simple, others have several settings to choose from. Check out your 4WD low setting, too, which is the one you’ll use when you need more power at low speeds. Read up on how to use your locking differential so you can maximize its impact on the trail.

Extra Equipment

You need high-quality tires for optimum traction, and you might want to consider some add-on equipment like bumpers that protect your truck from obstacles, a winch for hauling and lifting, snatch straps that work as a dynamic pulley, and a snorkel in case your truck ingests water.
