There are a wide variety of drivers out there who want their car to be able to take on the roughest wilderness out there, and our auto parts team at Van Horn Budget Auto of Plymouth can help make that happen. We understand what it takes to make a great off-road vehicle and will provide you with the parts and modifications to create the trekker that you’ve always dreamed of.

From plowing through the forest to bounding over desert sands, there is nothing like taking off on an adventure behind the wheel of an off-road vehicle. However, our auto experts can’t stress the importance of preparation enough.

One of the first things you should do to your vehicle before you take to the open trail is equip off-road tires. Off-road tires are better than your ordinary street tires, they’re specifically designed and hardened to take on difficult terrain types. Between the deep tread and the denser material, you’ll be able to take on any obstacle with ease.

Lift kits and skid plates play another huge role, as they both protect you from scraping your undercarriage against the terrain. A lift kit will improve your trekker’s ground clearance, while a set of skid plates can protect your vehicle if things don’t go as planned.

Lastly, if you’re off-roading in the Wisconsin area you’ll likely encounter plenty of water. To better take on rivers, streams, and ponds, we suggest an exhaust snorkel so that your engine doesn’t take in water. With a snorkel, you can submerge your vehicle into depths that would otherwise be the nail in the coffin for your engine.

If you’re looking for used car dealers who understand the value of some serious off-road modifications, Van Horn Budget Auto is the place to be. We’ll inspect your vehicle from head to toe, and make any changes you need to head out into the wilderness without hesitation.
