If you’re planning to leave your comfortable home for an off-road adventure, there are a few things you need to bring other than food and extra clothes. If you ever get stuck on the trails, your engine breaks down, or just need assistance on common problems, these off-road camping tools can help you. After that, you can enjoy your trip, whether you’re roughing it out or glamping in the Philippines. Read on!
Road Recovery Tool
Going through rough trails and muddy roads is enjoyable and fun until you get stuck somewhere. If you’re not prepared for this situation, there isn’t a lot you can do but call for back-up. But overland—especially in remote areas—there’s no one you can rely on but yourself, your mates, and your tools.
Instead of trying to get out of this situation by accelerating your vehicle, you can use a recovery tool with the help of your mates. The Hercules Complete Recovery Kit can quickly and safely get you out whether you get stuck on sandy, muddy, or rocky trails.
Aside from recoveries, you should always be prepared for a flat tire. Because the environment is different from the city, chances will be high that a sharp rock will puncture your tires. If you have large ones, you need the extra lift to fix them.
For lifting, recoveries, and more, the Hercules Offroad Jack won’t let you down. With a certified working load of 1050kg, your vehicle will be conveniently raised by this tool up to 1050mm in height. Paired with the Hercules Offroad Jack Base, you can safely lift your 4WD wherever you go.
As an indispensable part of your vehicle, your tire is engineered to perform multiple functions. They keep your ride safe by gripping to the ground, allowing you to maneuver your 4×4 vehicle with precision. When going overland, they get exposed to a variety of environments—from muddy roads to rocky trails. Without enough pressurized air, you won’t get where you want to go.
That’s why you need the Adventure Kings Tire Gauge wherever you go. With an easy-to-read dial and a quick-connect valve, you can check your tire pressure at any time.
Air Compressor and Deflator
Overland enthusiasts know that their tire pressure affects the way they drive off-road. Aside from keeping them inflated, there are times where you have to air down for a more efficient ride. This increases your tire’s contact patch with the ground, allowing your 4WD to perform better on rocky trails and sandy roads.
To adjust your tire pressure depending on the environmental conditions, you can keep the Adventure Kings Air Compressor and Deflator in your vehicle. Specially made for 4×4 owners, these heavy-duty tools will increase your performance overland.
Engine Data Scan Tool
Aside from your tires, your engine should always be well-maintained so it can bring you to off-road destinations every weekend. But most overland enthusiasts won’t know the problem unless their vehicle breaks down in front of them.
To keep your vehicle in the best condition—so you can enjoy your overland adventures—a small item such as Engine Data Scan Computer will be a tremendous help. It can act as a scan tool, digital gauge, trip computer, and car black box so you can be safe overland.
Mechanic Tool Kit
If you do see any problems in your vehicle, you need a set of tools to repair it immediately. But with little experience performing overland maintenance, you might have no idea what to bring.
Consisted of every tool you might need off-road, the Adventure Kings Ultimate Bush Mechanic Tool Kit has more than 150 pieces in a heavy-duty soft carry bag. This way, you are ready for any type of situation, whether you need to replace your wheels or repair your engine!
Aside from vehicle repairs, there are a variety of tasks you need to complete when staying overland. From sorting out messy wiring and cutting up branches for the campfire—you need multiple tools in your kit to perform tasks quickly and efficiently.
If you need a handy tool you can strap on your belt, you can opt for the Adventure Kings 18-in-1 Multi-Tool. With numerous functions, you won’t need to stuff your tool kit with extra items.
Even if your off-road vehicle is in the best condition, there will be situations where you will find yourself stuck on a mountain trail. Armed with knowledge and with the help of a few tools, you can get yourself out of this tricky circumstance. But what if it happens after dark?
To get out of any problem—whenever it’s day or night—you can rely on the Adventure Kings LED Work Light. With an adjustable hook and magnet, you can keep your hands free whether you’re repairing your tire or checking your engine. For other options, Adventure Kings also has a Mini LED Torch and an LED Head Torch.
Maxtrax Recovery Board
Another essential tool you might need overland is a recovery track. This way, if ever you get stuck without other people who can help you, you can perform a recovery by yourself. Designed for professional use, the Maxtrax Recovery Board is made based on the feedback of off-road racers, elite military members, and other certified 4WD driver trainers.
This Australian-made recovery board is designed to give you additional grip if ever you find your 4×4 immovable in muds, sand, and dirt. It can also be used as a bridge over gaps and as a tool to aid in your winching recoveries.
Speaking of winches, not just any product will do if you’re driving a big and bulky 4×4 vehicle. Instead, you can rely on Adventure King’s toughest winch yet, the Domin8r Xtreme 12,000 lb. Winch!
With the newest re-engineered brake, you will benefit from tougher, stronger, and safer recoveries. It also comes with a weather-resistant control box and cabling, sturdy hook, wired/wireless controllers, 7.2HP motor, and high-strength silver synthetic rope!
Because you’re traveling far away from the comforts of your home, you should always expect the unexpected. Whether it’s getting your tire punctured or getting stuck on sandy roads—these situations are part of the fun when going overland.
