Before you tackle the New Berlin terrain, you’ll want to keep the following in mind:
- Follow the rules. Off-roading is a great time, but you’ll want to make sure you have permission to ride on the trail you’ve chosen to avoid any fines or trouble.
- Pack before you leave. Off-roading can be unpredictable, so be sure to bring recovery gear like a winch kit, traction mats, a folding shovel, a hi-lift jack, etc. You never know when you’ll get stuck while driving!
- Prepare for emergencies. On that note, you’ll also want to bring emergency gear like a flashlight, blanket, etc. It’s always a good idea to bring plenty of snacks and water as well.
- Fuel up. Never go off-roading without fueling up your tank first! There’s nothing worse than realizing you need gas when you’re far from a gas station.
- Know your car. You’ll want to know which gears to choose for different New Berlin terrains — know when to shift into 4WD or lock the center differential in an AWD vehicle. You also may want to figure out how to take doors off your Jeep if your adventure calls for it.
- Be Connected. Thanks to the Jeep UConnect App, it’s easy to stay connected even while off-roading. You’ll be able to access navigation and other useful features. However, be sure your phone is fully charged beforehand and bring a car charger if you have one!
