Looking after your 4x4 is critical to having a great time out on the tracks, you put your vehicle through a lot, on rough terrain, and towing big loads, so you should get into the habit of checking your vehicle before and after every off-road trip, not all vehicles are driven the same but most 4wd are exposed to mud, water, dust and dirt which causes parts to wear out faster. Doing regular checks and maintenance on your vehicle is key to avoiding breakdowns out on the trial.
Remember when out on the trail, pay extra attention to any abnormal noises, fluid leaks, or smells.
