Believe it or not, the bumpers will protect the vehicle from dings and scrapes, while also providing a place to mount accessories like winches, lights, and tire carriers. Additionally, Subaru SUV models have 8.7 inches of ground clearance for increased safety off-road.

What Subaru SUV accessories are essential for off-roading? 

One way to make sure an off-road trip is more enjoyable is to outfit your SUV with the right gear. Pfaff Subaru has provided a brief list below that describes some of the best accessories for off-roading in your Subaru:

Compact shovel:

Shovels come in handy when you get stuck. The wider the blade, the faster you can dig out.

Traction mats:

Place the mats under the tires to get just the right amount of traction to get unstuck.

Cargo straps:

Use them to keep gear in place in your vehicle and to prevent them from becoming projectiles. 

Navigation:

Subaru vehicles are already outfitted with navigation. This comes in handy when you are deep in the bush and off the grid.  

Roof racks: 

Consider roof racks for your Subaru while you are off-roading. Store your belongings on top of your vehicle to increase the space inside your Subaru.
