8 most important recovery gear products

Off-roading pros love to believe that they are the toughest of the tough. However embarking on a 4WD adventure without the correct recovery and emergency gear does not demonstrate toughness. It only suggests that you are incapable of adequately preparing! Our popular 4WD store has a range of speciality four wheel drive recovery gear and equipment, as well as other aftermarket products to amplify what your vehicle is capable of. Get in touch with our team if you require any further information on our quality aftermarket accessories.

  1. 4WD recovery track device.

The most likely thing that will go wrong while you are travelling on challenging paths is that your vehicle will become lodged in the terrain. Particular on muddy and sandy paths, you can get into a situation where your tyres are quickly sinking into the ground. Getting out of this circumstance is tricky, but not impossible. The most important piece of equipment you need to save yourself and your car is a recovery track device. You can place the sturdy track in front of your tyres and give the vehicle a tough surface to escape on. We highly recommend the Tred Pro Recovery Device as a reliable and easy-to-use tool. Alternatively, the DT-RTRACK Recovery Device is a cheaper and more compact option.

  1. Emergency flares

Flares are crucial when travelling in remote areas. When you are unlucky and get yourself into a nightmare situation, you can use the flare to signal for help. If you use your 4WD to tow a boat, you should already have flares in the boat storage, as they are a legal requirement in most states when out in the open sea. The fishing patrols are regularly dishing out fines and punishment to anybody that fails to carry a flare with them.

  1. 4WD winches

A winch is a tool that is used to adjust the tension of a rope or wire rope to pull inwards. 4WD quality winches are powerful enough to pull an entire vehicle out of deep mud. When in a sticky situation, winches can be used to heave your vehicle out of its position and thrust it forward. Two of the best brands for winches are Dobinsons winches and Runva winches. There a number of different types available within these brands, such as electric winches, hydraulic winches and industrial winches. Make sure you research how to use winches safely, as they can be a dangerous piece of equipment if used incorrectly.

  1. First aid kit

Having a first aid kit may sound obvious, but when thinking so much about the specifics of their car, many people often forget to chuck some first aid products into the boot. When working on your car in emergency situations, it is highly likely that you will endure some form of injury (even if it is just a scratch), so being prepared is a must. In your kit, you should have: band aids, bandages, gauze dressings, tweezers, disposable gloves, safety pins, antiseptic cream, sticky tape, scissors, burn cream, antihistamine tablets, and alcohol-free cleansing wipes.

  1. Tyre deflating and inflating tools

In a tricky situation on sand or mud, you might need to alter the amount of air in your tyres in order to roll your vehicle out more easily. To deflate the tyres, you will need a Tyre Deflator. To pump them back up, you will need an Air Compressor. MYTUFF4X4 proudly sells some of the cheapest tyre deflators and highest quality air compressors.

  1. 4WD snatch traps

A snatch trap is a tool used to recover vehicles when they are stuck in tough terrain. One of the ends of the snatch trap will be attached to the trapped vehicle, and the other end will often be attached to a tree or sturdy structure. The strap itself stores kinetic energy which can then pull the 4WD out of a bog. Our online 4WD store sells a number of snatch trap varieties to match different vehicle weights and specifics.

  1. High lift jacks

A high lift jack is a critical form of equipment necessary in situations that require lifting, pushing, pulling, winching or clamping of your vehicle. A high lift jack, as opposed to a standard jack, is needed for larger vehicles and vehicles that have a suspension lift or oversized tyres. We sell both 4WD jacks and accessories to go alongside them.

  1. A shovel

If you can’t move around the land, then you need to move the land around you! Unsurprisingly, a shovel is a handy tool for giving your tyres some breathing space. Most of us don’t have enough room to put a full-sized shovel in the back of our car, but there is a more portable fold-down shovel available now in our 4WD shop.

towing a vehicle

What aftermarket products do you need in order to tow?

After owning your four wheel drive for a few months, you are probably eager to explore its capabilities. Many people who purchase a large 4WD vehicle often end up wanting to use the strength of the car to tow. Most big four wheel drives are capable of towing camper trailers, caravans and small cars, making them a perfect excuse to getaway or get practical.

Before you get into the business of towing, it is vital that you read up on the specific figures relating to your vehicle. Most cars have a weight maximum and a maximum towing capacity. If you exceed this allowance, you could permanently damage your vehicle. By researching and investigating your capabilities, you will be able to safely tow.

Even if your vehicle has unlimited or extensive power to tow large amounts, there are some aftermarket products and accessories that may assist your car on its journey. As off-roading specialists and 4WD aftermarket experts, we have listed a few items that you might like to consider before you get towing. You can also speak to our friendly four wheel driving specialist team to understand what products may be necessary for you.

1. Suspension Kit.
Naturally, towing something heavy on the back of your vehicle may cause the back-half of your car to droop downwards. It is important that your 4WD remains perfectly horizontal (without any droop) to allow for peak performance.

If the weight of your trailer is causing your backend to sag, a suspension lift is a suitable solution. This type of modification raises the ride height and provides more ground clearance. A suspension lift kit is a package that contains all of the tools and parts necessary to complete a suspension lift. The actual pieces that are included will depend on what brand of lift kit it is. Typically, it could include items like lift blocks, spacers, axles, and coil springs. Certain vehicle makes and models may also need specific materials to complete the suspension lift.

2. Recovery gear.
In most cases, you will probably leave your camper trailer at the campground and only take your vehicle out and about on questionable tracks, however that is not always possible. If you need to cross crazy tracks in order to get to your destination, you have to accept that the camper trailer is now part of your off-roading fleet.

If you plan on towing a trailer off-road, it is important that you always carry appropriate recovery gear with you. Getting out of a sticky situation in your 4WD is difficult enough, but when you have an extra tonne behind you, it can become even more challenging. In the middle of the outback, you can’t rely on somebody else happening to drive past and help you. Some of the recovery gear we recommend carrying includes high lift jacks, kinetic recovery ropes, snatch straps, and some form of recovery track device. Cheap 4WD recovery gear is available in our online aftermarket store.

3. GTurbo upgrade.
Carrying a large weight behind you will most likely slow down your vehicle and reduce your overall power. GTurbo are known for creating high-performance diesel turbochargers that essentially amplify your vehicle’s potential in every way. The extensive GTurbo range is available for competitive prices in our online 4WD store. These particular upgrades can often be challenging to install, so our team also provides tuning and installation.

4. Trailer Brake Controller.
Brake controllers are essential if you plan to use your four wheel drive for towing. They help to control the movement of your trailer and assist with your ability to drive smoothly and stop/slow safely. Trailer brake controllers are often mounted to the internal dashboard area and allow the driver of the vehicle to manually engage a trailer’s electrical braking system. RedArc are one of the most popular brake controller brands in Australia.

5. Reversing camera.
Reversing with a trailer in tow is extraordinarily difficult – especially when you cannot see what is behind you. Dash cameras and reversing camera are a crucial tool that can help you to reverse neatly and safely. Many reversing camera attach to the back of your trailer and the live footage can be watched from inside the vehicle.

6. Towing mirrors.
When you are towing a wide and long trailer, you will notice that vision out of your side mirrors is obstructed by the load. In order to still see the traffic behind and beside you, you will need special towing mirrors. Clearview towing mirrors extend out further than standard side mirrors, meaning you can have solid vision of all that is happening around you. Find mirrors that suit your particular make and model of car in our 4WD digital shop.

dash-camera-on-car

Should you have a dash camera on your car?

Having a dash cam on your vehicle does not make you paranoid. Or does it? Maybe. No. Yes. Are we getting paranoid now? Yes!

The public has always had a confused and cluttered opinion of dash camera necessity. Those who do have a dash camera installed deny their paranoia and vouch for their importance. Those who do not have a dash camera often believe it is a waste of money and only for the most paranoid people of society.

These thoughts typically originate from the belief that dash cams are purely for capturing car crashes and proving fault or innocence. Dash cams record every detail that takes place both on the road and inside the vehicle, meaning they are strong evidence for defending yourself in the case of a questionable car crash.

However, dash cameras are used for many other purposes than just car crashes. There are various reasons to install a dash cam on your vehicle:

  • Track where you have been and replay driving footage.
  • Remember where you parked your vehicle.
  • Capture bold four wheel driving adventures and off-roading experiences.
  • Prove fault in the case of a car accident.
  • Prove innocence if falsely reported by police or authorities.

 

What can dash cams do?

There are hundreds of thousands of drivers in Australia that use a dash cam on a daily basis. Different brands and models of dash cams will be capable of different things. Generally, all dash cams will be able to record your driving from the front of your vehicle and give you the opportunity to playback any footage.

Some crash cameras will also be able to record while the vehicle is not turned on. The most popular dash cams have unique features, such as Wi-Fi connection and GPS tracking, to provide a comprehensive driving assistant.

 

How much do dash cameras cost?

People who are weighing up whether or not to purchase a crash camera will definitely consider their price. The best way to evaluate the cost of a dash cam is to search online car accessory stores and aftermarket vehicle sellers. In most cases, what you pay for is what you get. However, you should be wary of some sellers that will charge you more than what the camera is actually worth. Shop around!

While expensive dash cams may offer more features and enhanced functionality, there are cheap dash cams available in Australia that still provide all of the recording ability that you require. Some purchasers will start with a low-end dash cam and eventually upgrade to a high-end crash cam once they are convinced of its value.

 

What is the best crash cam available in Australia?

As vehicle accessory experts, we have a strong opinion on the best dash cameras currently available on the market. Our top pick of the bunch is the renowned Blackvue variety of dash cams. Within the Blackvue range includes the Blackvue DR900S, Blackvue DR750S and Blackvue DR650S.

Undeniably, the leading camera candidate among the group is the DR900S with reliable 4K high definition camera, GPS and Wi-Fi. The camera also encompasses a motion sensor that works whilst driving and when parked. When looking for a high-end dash cam with ample features, this is an idyllic option. For those who are on a tight budget, the DR650S may be a cheap dash cam option that is more suitable.

 

Important things to consider before purchasing a dash cam.

Before you go ahead and make a purchase, you should consider whether that particular dash cam brand is appropriate for you. Not all dash cameras are created in the same way, so some styles will not match your car or provide the features that you require. Always ask the following questions before adding anything to your shopping cart:

  • Is the camera suited to your make and model of vehicle?
  • Does the camera need to be charged, and do you have the correct tools for charging it?
  • Do you require a front camera and rear camera, and does your chosen dash cam offer this?
  • Will you feel confident installing the camera yourself?
  • If you plan on off-roading, will the camera be sturdy enough to withstand bumps and movement?
  • Is the camera within your budget?
  • Can the camera be delivered on time to your home?
  • Do you want to view the camera footage on your smart phone via Wi-Fi, and does the camera have this feature?
  • Are you relying on the camera to track your location, and does it have GPS functionality?

If you are unsure about what dash cam is best for you, you can get in touch with one of our MYTUFF4X4 sales consultants and discuss your options. Alternatively, you can browse our online four wheel driving store to see our range of products.

nudge vs bullbar

Nudge bar vs bull bar: What do you need?

Amongst all of the world’s four wheel driving buffs, there has been a long-lasting argument comparing nudge bars and bull bars. When shopping for aftermarket 4WD products, all buyers come to a point where they must question which frontal bar product they wish to purchase. For most people, the choice between a nudge bar and a bull bar is a daunting one.

As off-roading specialists, we have engaged with many customers that face this dilemma. Although many 4WD enthusiasts bow down to bull bars, there are still quite a few consumers who are perfectly satisfied with their nudge bar.

First of all, in order to distinguish which 4WD aftermarket accessory is best, we need to recognise what their chief purpose is and why a bar is needed for your vehicle. Essentially, these bars are designed and installed for three central reasons:

  • To protect your vehicle in the case of collision (this could be an animal, tree scrub or another car).
  • To protect the cooling system from unwanted debris.
  • To enable better recovery with winches if the vehicle becomes bogged or stranded.

Almost everybody who owns a four wheel drive, loves their four wheel drive. It comes hand in hand. Therefore, it is no surprise why these vehicle owners would want to protect their beloved car. However, will nudge bars and bull bars provide the same level of cover?

To decide between the two bar systems, we need to nut out the key differences between nudge bars and bull bars.

1. Price.

One of the major differences between nudge bars and bull bars is their price. Notably, nudge bars are a cheaper 4WD accessory, whereas bull bars can often be double or triple the price. Whilst some people may be looking for the cheapest nudge bars possible, others will be happy to pay additional if it means a better quality product.

2. Appearance.

Bull bars and nudge bars have different designs. While a bull bar reaches around the full extent of your vehicles front, a nudge bar only presents a barrier across the front-most area. According to many people, a bull bar appears visually tougher, whereas a nudge bar is a less intrusive accessory.

3. Functionality.

Although nudge bars and bull bars are installed onto the same part of your vehicle, they have different levels of effectiveness. Because of the difference in size, one option provides more protection and coverage than the other.

Bull bars are the bigger bar option, so they can essentially protect the entire frontage of your vehicle, including the headlights. Nudge bars, on the other hand, are smaller and will only protect you from straight-on collisions. They are usually not as strong and stable as bull bars, so they might also be less capable during recovery proceedings. It is important to note that these measures of quality are also dependent on the brand of bar that you purchase, as well as the particular material types that are incorporated into the design.

Picture this. If you hit a kangaroo whilst out and about, a nudge bar will only provide some protection. In the case that the kangaroo hits the front side of your vehicle, it might provide no protection. On the other hand, a bull bar can give protection, even if you do not hit the kangaroo directly front-on.

Should you get a nudge bar or bull bar?

At the end of the day, bull bars do provide more protection for your vehicle. They are typically a stronger product that can offer you greater capabilities and value. The catch? Their price tag is not as heart-warming.

Whether you decide to purchase a nudge bar or bull bar will depend on your individual needs and budget. If you only have minimal cash to splurge, it might be best to only invest in a nudge bar. However, if you are willing to invest in a product with better functionality, you could look more seriously at bull bars. You should also consider that you may have to pay for bull bar installation, which will be an additional cost.

You can purchase both nudge bars and bull bars online for reasonable prices. We recommend dealing with popular Australian 4WD brands, such as Dobinsons.

Depending on the type of vehicle you have, certain bars may or may not be appropriate for you. Before purchasing any 4WD products online, you should check that it can be installed on your specific vehicle make and model.

Our online 4WD store has a variety of car aftermarket products that can amplify the capabilities of your vehicle. As well as nudge bars and bull bars, we provide other protective product and recovery gear to support your off-roading adventures. If you need any information on a specific product, you can contact one of our expert team members.

1. 4WD suspension kits
A suspension lift on your vehicle will not only look remarkably beastly, but it will boost your vehicle’s performance. Body lifts offer a taller ride, more protection for your underbody and body, greater clearance, steeper descents and steeper climbs. With the range of benefits they offer, it is no wonder why most people get a lift on their car before doing anything else.

2. 4WD snorkels
For people who love getting dirty, wet and dangerous, snorkels are a must-have feature. All popular Australian snorkels will stop dirt, water or debris from entering your engine and bonnet space. The creative design permits air to enter from above your car, rather than the expose frontal area. Consider that an all-clear for river crossings, sandy drives and unsealed roads.

3. 4WD nudge bars
Although you may not plan to hit anything, some obstacles are unavoidable. Quality nudge bars and bull bars will safeguard the front of your 4WD from unexpected hits and bumps. Installing a nudge bar is a certain way to keep your engine safe and sound.

4. 4WD underbody armour
When you are driving on rough and unpredictable terrain, there is likely to be rocks and debris that gets kicked up from your tyres and smacked into the underbody of your 4WD. Protection for your underbody is vital so that your radiator and sump do not get damaged. It is an investment for the future.

5. 4WD spotlights
Are you going to be travelling at dusk, dawn or sundown? This is the prime time for kangaroos and other wildlife to dash across the road without warning.

6. 4WD side awnings
If you plan to go camping with your vehicle, an awning is a popular leisure accessory to add to your four wheel drive or ute. Awnings typically extend from the side of a roof rack and are held up with poles or pegs. They offer shade and wind protection if you are relaxing outside of the car.

7. 4WD recovery gear
Unlike the aforementioned accessories, a four wheel driving recovery kit is not something that gets semi-permanently attached to your vehicle. Recovery gear, such as recovery ropes, recovery tracks and winch extension straps, will usually be stored in the body of the vehicle and pulled out when you get yourself into a sticky situation.

If you are completely honest with yourself, having all of the above modifications means you are sure to be heading off the beaten track and into some remote and challenging zones. Having recovery products is crucial for keeping you safe and able when you venture out into the wilderness.
