It is used for assisted recoveries together with the recovery rope. Made from the highest quality nylon, this powerful rope is the best choice for safe recovery and towing, in mud and sand terrains.
Digital Gauge: Letting air out of your tires allows the tires to adapt to the terrain for improvements in traction and ride quality. While the benefits are universal for all tires and vehicles, the method of getting the air out of the tires could vary. It is always handy to have a digital gauge at hand to make sure all tires are deflated down to the same PSI. On sand it is recommended to deflate down to 15 PSI.
GPS Device : When you go off road and into the wild it is hard to keep track of your entrants and exit points as well as general coordinates. It is recommended that at least the leader of the convoy should carry a GPS unit to make sure that he/she knows where you’re going. Various different models out in the market but be sure to find the one that’s fits you r needs and lifestyle.
Sand Track: This is a tool that comes in handy at the time of self-recovery. A must have to get yourself out of a tricky situation. All you have to do is clear the surroundings of the tire which is stuck and simply lay the mat tracks to help the vehicle out.
Off-Road Flag: It serves as an indication to the fellow members of your convoy as well as the oncoming traffic of your whereabouts. While you’re in an area with high dunes the visibility of the vehicle in front of you could be next to none but the high flying tail flag could direct you.
Safety Boots: Keeping your feet in guard is not just a safety feature when you’re off road but it is also a survival essential to have. It is worth investing in a good set of boots to keep you away from the elements as well as the creepy crawlies you find across different terrains.
Emergency Kit: Another must have while you’re on your expeditions. It must include a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, flares, emergency torch, reflective triangle, car jump kit, duct tape, scissors, match box, instant hot & cold food are just to name but a few.
Compressor: Not the most important tool to have at your disposal as long a few others in your convoy have it, although, the convenience and time factor always plays a part when you’re embarking on an off road excursion. Car air compressors are usually universal and powered by either the cigarette lighter unit or directly from the vehicle battery.
Walkie Talkie: This could be the only way of communication between members of your convoy once you are out of mobile signal range. It is key to keep in touch with the rest of your convoy for your safety and others.
Showel: Another must have tool when you’re off road even if your convoy members have a winch to assist you with a recovery situation. A longer handle shovel would be more beneficial in case you are stuck deep or have to shovel the sand from right underneath your vehicle.
Safety Gloves: It is always good to have a pair of safety gloves in the vehicle in case you have to assist with a recovery and many other situations that would involve getting your hands dirty. A glove with a rigid grip is always recommended.
Tyre Deflator: One of the most important things when it comes to off-roading is tyre pressures. Although there is no hard rule on a set ‘per square inch’ (PSI) pressure when the tires come off the tarmac, they can vary from terrain to terrain. 15 PSI is considered a norm on the sand terrain in this region. Watch out for the increase in tyre pressures during the hot summer months in this middle-east region.
