Canton area Jeep Fans Get Down and Dirty

Finance a Jeep near Canton

At Wally Armour, our Canton area Jeep dealer, we know what it means to be Trail Rated®, but do you? The Trail Rated® badge signifies that any vehicle holding it has been brutally tested to perform in the following five categories of off-road conditions: traction, ground, clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording. With capabilities like these, you’ll want to go off-roading on a weekly basis, but first, you have to be prepared.

Necessary Emergency Gear and Tips

Canton area Jeep enthusiasts will want to invest in some must-have emergency gear before embarking on their off-roading adventure.

  1. Tow straps
  2. Heavy duty rope
  3. Spare tires
  4. A can of aerosol “flat repair”
  5. Tire repair kit
  6. Vehicle repair tools
  7. A shovel
  8. Engine coolant
  9. Air pump
  10. Jumper cables

In the event that you’re stuck and have failed to remove yourself from a ditch, or can’t repair that stubborn flat tire, be sure to have plenty of extra water for everyone. If you’re ever stuck, survival is key! In most cases, enthusiasts off-road in remote areas for the best experience. In addition to the list above, also bring—for your own benefit—a first aid kit, gloves, a tarp, a flashlight, towels, and your cell phone and charger. You can thank us later.

Along with necessary equipment, you must be familiar with off-roading basics:

  • Pack supplies, tools, and extra gear to be on the safe side.
  • Know the underside of your vehicle and understand where the lower hanging parts are located so you can avoid damaging them.
  • Learn your approach and departure angles, and your breakover angle, to avoid damaging your Jeep.
  • Don’t hesitate to get out of your vehicle to examine tricky terrain and soil to avoid unwanted surprises.
  • Don’t wrap your thumbs around the steering wheel because sudden steering movements can be dangerous.
  • Avoid diagonal lines while travel up and down hills to prevent rolling.

If you follows these guidelines and tips, your off-roading experience will be a blast, but always remember to think safe! For a free Jeep test drive at our Canton area Jeep dealer, stop in or contact us at (888) 689-9957.
