Gear

Must have gear

As with life, unexpected events can prove traumatic while off-roading. The following items are usually required at organized off-road locations. Most are common sense items that will save the day and turn a disaster into a memorable experience.

  • First Aid Kit
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Tow Strap
  • Good spare tire (preferably the same size and type as the tires mounted on your truck!)
  • Oil, water and fluids for your truck
