Jeeps are excellent family vehicles because they provide plenty of space, drive safely on all types of terrain, and look pretty cool, too. Of course, if you’re traveling with the entire family, you want to be sure that your Jeep has the auto accessories you need for a great trip every time you get behind the wheel.
Side Steps For the Kids
Jeeps are taller than cars, which means it may be harder for the smallest members of the family to get into yours on their own. There is a remedy for that, though. You can add running boards to the sides of your Jeep. These side steps make it easier for everyone in the family to climb into the Jeep and buckle in for a ride. Choose secure, name-brand boards that not only withstand the pressure of people climbing on them but can hold up to the weather outside as well.
Seat Covers For Potential Damage
Seat covers help to protect your car’s seats from damage related to weather and general wear and tear. If you live in an area that gets a lot of wintry weather, covering the seats can protect them from weather-related moisture, drying out and staining due to salt, and tears from the fabric getting too cold. Think about what the kids bring into the car as well. Sticky hands and crumbly snacks are common when you have little ones, so covering the back seats help to ensure they stay clean even when the kids don’t.
Stash a First Aid Kit
You never know what can happen on the road, especially when you have the entire family with you. It’s always a good idea to have a first aid kit in your Jeep. Include bandaids, alcohol wipes, any over-the-counter medication that you use regularly, ice and heat packs, and anything else that you think you may need while you’re on the road. In addition to the first aid kit, consider adding snacks, water, blankets, and flares to ensure you have a full emergency kit should you become stranded somewhere.
Add LED Headlights
If your Jeep didn’t already come with them, consider switching out your regular headlights for LED versions. LED headlights not only make your Jeep look better but also provide better visibility when you’re driving at night, which means you’re less likely to get into an accident. There are a number of options so be sure to compare them before purchasing.
Install a Hands-Free Phone Holder
When your family leads a busy life, you’re on the road a lot. Chances are there are phone calls you need to take, directions you need to find, or notifications that you need to read while you’re on the road. Taking your hands off the wheel to fumble with your phone leads to dangerous situations. The better option is to install a hands-free phone holder. This way, you can look at directions or answer phone calls with ease, keeping you safe on the road while you handle business.
From seat covers to safety measures, there is a wide range of accessories that you can add to your Jeep. Do some shopping around to determine which ones will best meet your needs.
