    Default Pre Offroading Checklist

    Preparation is key to the success of an outdoor adventure; especially when you are out there in the middle of nowhere.

    Some basic tips:

    • NEVER go offroading alone when the terrain is even moderately challenging. Take atleast one other 4x4 along for company, and to pull you out in the event that your vehicle gets stuck. Or breaks down

    • Good idea to let your family know which location you intend to go offroading, and the expected time of return

    • Basic check on your 4x4, especially on the areas critical to its operation (Engine, transmission, braking, electricals, suspension etc.). Have an expert look over the condition of your hose pipes, drive belts and tyres

    • Atleast one proper spare tyre. Jack, spanner, basic tools (screw driver for example), tool kit, some spare fuses, hose pipes, belts, bulbs (if night OTR), lubes, extra tyre tubes and a torch light. Some of these are of particular importance if you drive an old-school Jeep

    • Towing rope. Also, a solid hook installed front and back on your 4x4 is mandatory

    • Full tank of petrol / diesel at the point where you start offroading

    • Fire extinguisher

    • Air-pressure gauge : Always drive at the recommended air pressure on tarmac. If you intend to inflate / deflate as required by the terrain, take along an air compressor as well.

    Nice info!
    Thanks for sharing them here.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    The list is long & endless but, One thing I learnt from the great outdoors is that irrespective of how and on what you offroad, always keep a few candles and match box in the vehicle.

    You'd be amazed of the applications, God forbid you get stuck, far & wide.

    And not to mention, a First Aid Kit is highly important.

    GPS could be much helpful if going far and deserted un explored areas especially if you are going without a guide.

    Jerry cans for water and additional fuel, preferably, the jerry cans should say "Property of U.S. Government"

    But seriously, jerry cans and an auto air filler for unforeseen tire issues.

    A role of the strong tape (duct or gaffer) - the one that usually comes in silver and black color.
    A lot of times you have a DIY at hand, which might enable you to at least get back to the civilization if you have that tape
