10 Must-Have Off-Roading Accessories to Get Started

Share Post

Whether you’re a seasoned off-roader or are just starting out, it’s essential to fix your rig up with the right gear. While your Jeep® or Ram Brand ride can do a lot on its own, these accessories help make the trip even more exciting. From winches and roof racks to skid plates and suspension systems, these 10 essential off-roading accessories prepare you for the adventure ahead. 

1. Winch

A winch is an essential accessory to have when you’re heading off-road. It’s designed to help get your ride (or your friend’s ride) unstuck. The Jeep Performance Parts Winch is waterproof and submersible and includes 100 feet of WARN® Spydura™ synthetic rope. 

2. Lighting (Light Bar / 5-Inch LED Off-Road Light Kit / 7-inch LED Off-Road Light Kit)

It’s important to be equipped with extra lighting on the trail, especially during nighttime endeavors. That’s why Mopar® offers a Light Bar and two different LED Off-Road Light Kits—a 5-inch and a 7-inch—to fit your needs. 

3. Doors-Off Mirror Kit

Take the doors off, keep the mirrors on. The Doors-Off Mirror Kit includes two shatter-proof mirrors with adjustable mirror arms for an increased field of vision when Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator doors are removed. 

4. Snorkel

A snorkel helps to keep your engine safe from water and dust while also drawing in cooler air for improved performance. This cool air can help boost engine power by up to 30%, making it ideal for those looking to get more out of their off-roading journey. 

5. All-Weather Floor Mats

All-weather floor mats are an essential accessory for anyone looking to protect their vehicle’s interior from dirt, mud and other debris. Mopar All-Weather Floor Mats are made from high-quality rubber construction and are custom designed to provide the perfect fit.

6. Windshield Tie-Down Straps

Windshield tie-down straps provide a more secure, reliable hold on your Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator windshield when it’s down. These straps attach to the frame of your vehicle and are designed to prevent windshield rattling or movement while enroute.  

7. Lift Kits

When it’s time to tackle rough terrain, lift kits provide extra ground clearance to navigate ruts, rocks or deep mud—eliminating the fear of bottoming out or scraping against objects. Mopar offers the Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch Lift Kit with Bilstein® Shocks for Wrangler and Gladiator models for consistent and fade-free performance on the trails. 

8. Safety Kits (Jeep® Trail Rated® Winch Accessory KitRoadside Safety Kit)

Safety kits are essential for any off-roader—beginner or expert. The Jeep Trail Rated® Winch Accessory Kit includes a heavy-duty tow strap, making it perfect for recovering stuck vehicles or pulling them out of mud pits. 

Additionally, the Roadside Safety Kit comes with reflective safety triangles, jumper cables, tire pressure gauge and much more. This accessory is ideal if you become stranded in remote areas without nearby help.

9. Undercarriage Protection (Skid PlatesRock Rails)

When you head off pavement, it’s important to prepare for more than just mud and gravel. Skid plates protect your vehicle’s underside from rocks and debris, while rock rails provide protection for the lower, outside edges of your vehicle when climbing over boulders or tackling steep inclines.

10. Toolbox

A toolbox helps make sure you’re prepared for any situation. A strong, waterproof and secure box will help keep all your gear organized and protected from the elements when off-roading.
