The first thing is to know the roads that are open to four wheel driving. It’s not on every other road that you should do four wheeling. Do a survey before the day of the adventure to avoid getting lost on this day which you are supposed to be having fun. Get a map of the place you will be visiting and stick to it throughout the adventure. If possible, avoid muddy places which can cause wheel spin and rutting. Avoid obstacles that can cause damage to your vehicle and cut short the adventure.

Always ensure you cross streams at designated places where the road crosses it.

Another important preparation is to ensure you do not go alone as this could be dangerous incase of emergency or accident. If you part ways at some point, designate a place where you will meet and set time. It is important to have a radio call or a cell phone which you can use to call your buddies incase of emergency.

Always carry with you towing ropes and chains to use if you get stuck in mud.  In Utah diesel performance is one of the key considerations.  Make sure that you diesel vehicle is maintained and will not leave you stranded in the back country.  Since so many in our area are avid four wheelers, it is easy to find a reputable diesel performance shop.

While driving, you do not to have your tyres full as this can challenge your driving. Deflate them until a burge is visible but again do not drive with the tyres too much deflated.

You do not need to be told that you need to have your safety belt on whenever driving. Also be prepared for any weather because you never know what may come up during the adventure day.
