What Accessories will I Need to Bring for my Off-road Trip?

The off-roading accessories you bring can make or break your trip to your favorite off-roading destination. Here are some suggestions for which ones are most essential for your Subaru SUV. Whether tires are considered an accessory or not may be subject to debate, but we would be remiss in not mentioning them because the right tires are critical. Specifically designed for off-roading, off-road tires are best for hardcore off-roading. All-terrain tires will work for moderate and light off-roading. A toolkit for repairs, a shovel for digging out, and traction mats are also must-haves for off-roading. Don’t forget that these things must be stored safely, or they will be a hazard when you hit bumpy terrain. Cargo straps will keep things secure, or store your off-roading accessories in a roof rack or a storage box that is bolted down. With these off-roading accessories, you will be good to go to your next off-roading destination in your Subaru SUV.

What Recovery Gear do I Need for my Off-road Trip?

Recovery gear for your Subaru SUV is the most important off-roading accessory for your trip to your selected off-roading destination. Getting stuck happens, but whether that stops you in your tracks or is just a temporary bump in the road depends on the right gear. A winch, shackles, a snatch strap, and recovery boards are essential items that you should include in your list of off-roading accessories for your Subaru. Don’t leave home without your recovery gear!

Which Subaru Models are Best for Off-road Adventures?

Subaru SUVs are the best vehicles to take on your trip to your next off-roading destination. Subarus are designed with off-roading in mind. The Crosstek, Forester, and Ascent come with all-wheel drive standard and boast 8.7 inches of ground clearance, which are great attributes for off-roading. With the right off-roading accessories and your Subaru SUV, your next journey to your favorite off-roading destination is bound to be a success!

What are the Best Weather Conditions for Off-roading?

The ideal weather conditions to take your Subaru SUV to your off-roading destination is a matter of opinion, but most seasoned off-roaders agree that during heavy rain or snow is not the best time to go off-roading. Having the right off-roading accessories can mitigate the risks of venturing out under these conditions, but extreme weather may make the trail impassable or dangerous. This also applies just after a big rain or snowfall. However, many off-roading destinations post trail and weather conditions on their websites, so doing your homework before your next trip can pay off in time, money, and safety. Off-roading in your Subaru SUV can be safe and enjoyable in all seasons and in different weather conditions as long as you avoid weather extremes, do your research, and pack the right off-roading accessories before heading out to your off-roading destination.
