Life doesn’t stop just because it snows. And you can’t avoid being on the road, especially if your work or hobbies keep you out and about – can’t race those snowmobiles around the kitchen island after all. So, when you’re preparing for long trips or daily commutes, consider the following winter vehicle inspections, equipment & tools, and supplies to stay safe and comfortable.
First, you’ll want to make sure you have the proper equipment and vehicle setup. A winter inspection of your vehicle before any winter trip can prevent issues before they even happen.
Air bags for your truck suspension, such as those sold by Air Lift, provide support when hauling or towing heavy loads and can help reduce hauling & towing hazards like squat, poor steering control and responsiveness, poor headlight aim, trailer sway, and body roll. Mitigating these common issues is especially important during the winter, when dangerous weather and road conditions can amplify those issues. Steering control, headlight aim, and trailer stability are all especially useful when driving in darker, more slippery conditions. Thanks winter…
Winter conditions can cause more stress on our vehicles so, even after a thorough inspection, you may find yourself with a mechanical issue. Having the right tools to repair common mechanical issues will get you back on the road much faster.
If you have ever asked yourself, what emergency supplies should I have in my vehicle, or happen to be in a situation where you are temporarily stranded, you’ll want to be prepared. Keep the following supplies in your vehicle during winter to stay safe and comfortable.
Winter driving is inevitable for some of us and that comes with risk, but the right preparations can keep you safe and comfortable in the event or a roadside accident or mechanical breakdown. This list is a good starting point for preparedness, but every situation is different. Think about where you’ll be driving and who you may have with you and plan accordingly. We all want you and your loved ones to have a safe and happy ride during the winter!
