The Basics of Off-Road Vehicle Maintenance
Having an off-road vehicle may allow you to explore uncharted territory, but this type of rigorous adventure driving can also put some serious wear on your car. Fortunately, our service technicians at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep® are experts in off-road auto care, and when you visit our service center, we’ll ensure that all of your off-road maintenance needs are met in full.
Whether you’re trekking through snowy mountain peaks or venturing through hot desert sands, off-road vehicles can handle a lot of rigorous terrain. However, traversing different types of terrain can put a lot of strain on a number of your vehicle’s components, including your tires. Off-road tires are designed to be more durable than regular tires, but sometimes this durability is pushed to the limit. After every off-road adventure, we suggest giving your tires a thorough inspection. It’s also important to rotate your tires on a regular basis to ensure that each tire is worn evenly, which dramatically improves each tire’s lifespan.
Another important factor of off-road maintenance is to ensure that your suspension and shocks are up to par. Bouncing over obstacles and roaring across stretches of wilderness can put an extreme amount of wear on these components, which can lead to potential damage. To keep these components from needing a complete replacement, we suggest that you visit one of our maintenance experts on a regular basis so you can confidently hit the trail whenever you want.
