Top Ten Off Road and Overland Accessories

Lexus GX Merus Adventure Park Overland VR4 Trail

Hitting the trails in an off road rig is like nothing else in the world. It’s not just about getting from point A to point B, it’s about the adventure and challenge that comes with it. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take in some breathtaking views. I mean, who wouldn’t want to climb a rocky hill, ford a stream, or navigate through a thick forest? And let’s not forget about the camaraderie that comes with it – bonding with fellow off-roaders over a campfire, sharing stories of epic adventures and mishaps. It’s all part of the fun. Sure, there may be some bumps, scrapes, and bruises along the way, but that just adds to the thrill. And let’s be real, it’s not a true off-roading adventure until you’ve gotten your rig stuck in the mud at least once.

Here is a Top Ten List of Off Road and Overland Accessories:

  • Winch: A winch is a device that can help you pull yourself out of tricky situations, such as when your vehicle gets stuck in the mud or sand.
  • Recovery straps: Recovery straps are used to help you get unstuck by allowing another vehicle to pull you out.
  • High-lift jack: A high-lift jack is a versatile tool that can help you lift your vehicle, move it around, and even winch it out of a tight spot.
  • Off-road lights: Off-road lights can help you see better in low-light or nighttime conditions and improve visibility in fog or rain.
  • Snatch block: A snatch block is a pulley used to change the direction of a winch cable, allowing you to pull from a different angle.
  • Skid plates: Skid plates protect the underside of your vehicle from rocks and other obstacles you might encounter while off-roading.
  • Portable air compressor: A portable air compressor can help you adjust your tire pressure depending on the terrain, and can also inflate tires if needed.
  • Traction aids: Traction aids, such as sand ladders or traction mats, can help you gain traction if your vehicle gets stuck in sand, mud, or snow.
  • GPS or navigation system: A GPS or navigation system can help you find your way through unfamiliar terrain and prevent you from getting lost.
  • First-aid kit: A first-aid kit can be a lifesaver if you or someone in your group gets injured while off-roading. It should include basic supplies such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers.

– Page Contains Affiliate Links – Why? (click here to expand) We lose money every month producing the TX:GX Overland website and YouTube channel. Creating content takes time and money – we have to pay for:
  • Website and WordPress hosting
  • Trip videos that cost money for fuel, admissions fees at parks/events, and wear and tear on our vehicle
  • An enormous amount of our time producing this site and the videos (I won’t even begin to calculate that cost!)
Basically, we lose money every month. We use affiliate links and YouTube monetization to try to reduce this monthly loss but they don’t pay much. We lose about $20 per month just from our website costs (not including trip costs). Purchases made via this website using affiliate links sometimes result in us making a small commission (usually 2-4%) that we use to keep the lights on. But since we lose about $20 per month (not including trip fees) you can see we are definitely not “in it for the money” – we do this out of a love for helping other people enjoy the outdoors and overlanding, to help people get started and find gear to make their trips more successful, and to produce videos that inspire and entertain our viewers. Even though we lose money each month, we are committed to helping the world we live in. Please read “Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit” to see a list of the causes and charitable organizations we donate to. Thank you for your understanding!
– Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit (click here to expand) TX:GX Overland is about experiencing the outdoors and doing so in a responsible, sustainable way. Without the trees, the forests, the clean babbling brooks and the open trails we enjoy while overlanding we simply couldn’t exist. Therefore, we are committed to helping organizations that support our outdoor adventures. Though we do not make a profit from the TX:GX Overland website or YouTube channel we still make donations to worthwhile causes. We make donations to the following organizations:
  • OneTreePlanted
  • Tread Lightly
We have reviewed these organizations and determined they fit our purpose. We do not have the resources to do an exhaustive background check of their prior/current activities, partnerships, board members, etc. so if they are “doing something bad” we’re not aware of it. We hope our donations to these organizations is doing the world some good – if you disagree with these choices we respect your decision, please respect ours.
