Whether you’re an avid off-road enthusiast, or a newcomer, before you take to the trail again, our Dodge, Jeep®, RAM, and Chrysler service team highly recommends that you receive some thorough off-road maintenance. At Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Manitowoc, we’re experts on all things off-roading and will inspect your vehicle from hood to exhaust to ensure everything is up to par.

While there is nothing like adventuring through the great open wilderness, off-roading can put a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle. Some of this wear can seem trivial at first, but if left unresolved can evolve into a much bigger issue.

The first thing to inspect is your tires. Your tires put up with quite the beating while on the trail, and before you embark on your next journey you should double-check, or even triple-check that they’re balanced and pressured properly.

Another thing to pay close attention to is your suspension. Your suspension, like your tires, deals with a huge brunt of the rough and tumble of off-roading. Extensive off-roading can also cause axle nuts and bearings to loosen up as a result of the rattle and bump of trail riding.

Your motor oil and air filters are essential no matter what kind of car you drive. As a result, they deserve a place on this list, just as much as your tires and suspension. Motor oil can become clogged with gunk and grime causing engine strain, and debris in your air filter can only increase the issue. Having these checked and changed out can make a huge difference on your next off-road adventure.

Whether you’re hoping to purchase an off-road worthy RAM truck, or are in need of some off-road modifications, Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Manitowoc is your best resource in getting it all done.
