If you are ready for off-road adventures around Lakewood, then Lakewood Happy Motors has a few tips for those who are beginners. We want to keep you safe and fully experience off-roading.

The first thing you should do is assess your vehicle. Do you need any special equipment or customizing? Assess whether you have the appropriate traction control for sand, mud and river crossings. Getting stuck is very common, and off-road driving is enhanced when there is continuous momentum.

Do make sure that you have front and rear recovery points as well as tow straps handy. And while a hand-held FRS/GMRS radio is okay, we recommend having a CB for backup communication.

Additionally, bring along the following crucial items:

  • Heavy Work Gloves
  • Jumper Cables
  • Flashlight
  • Shovel
  • GPS and Maps
  • First Aid Kit
  • Shovel
  • Air Compressor
  • Additional Clothing
  • Food and Water

It cannot be stressed enough that bringing more water than you think you might need is paramount when off-roading, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro.
