Off-roading is fun, but it’s also hard on a vehicle. Maintaining your off-road truck is key to enjoying the ride.
You’ve just returned from an invigorating day at Assateague or Pine Barrens. What’s the first thing you do? Pour a beer? Maybe. But that’s not the first thing you should do.
The first thing you should do is to check out your truck to make sure it’s in good shape for the next trip.
“Off-roading is tough on a vehicle. Off-roaders regularly push their vehicles to the limit, putting stress on even beefed-up aftermarket components. Even if you stick to casual fire roads, you should get in the habit of performing regular maintenance checks after every off-road trip — as exposure to mud, water, dust and dirt causes parts to wear out faster,” drivingline.com says. “Prevention is a key component to avoiding breakdowns out on the trail, and you certainly don’t want a component to break while traveling at highway speeds either. An added benefit of doing regular maintenance inspections yourself is that the more familiar you are with your vehicle, the more capable you are to address any problems that may arise when you are out on a trail.”
What’s on that inspection list? According to drivingline.com, it starts with cleaning your truck. From there, you should take a look at your tires, differential and transmission, shocks, brakes, axles, suspension, frame, engine and winch. You should also make sure your truck and its parts are adequately lubricated.
If you find any problems, that’s the time to get them fixed, so your truck is ready for your next off-road adventure.
