The world of auto manufacturers and auto accessories is a big part of the world’s economy and with more and more cars being made it’s only becoming bigger. Something that is also big in the automotive world is the Range Rover Sport – a luxury SUV, which as time passes, gets more functionality thanks to more and more accessories being made for the model. This is expected since the Sport is a 4WD vehicle that can become off-road capable, and the world of aftermarket accessories is full of accessories for 4WD vehicles.
But why would you want to go for Range Rover Sport aftermarket accessories in the first place? Well, first of all, they are more affordable than OEM accessories. Now, does this mean you have to do more research into finding the right type of part? Yes, it does. But it isn’t as complicated as you might think, and the hard work really does pay off since you have a lot of options to choose from. Be it improving your camping experience or the performance of your Range Rover Sport, you should make use of these accessories.
Is It Bad to Use 4WD All the Time?
Well, for most people, the 4WD system in their Range Rover Sport might even not get used at all, but one thing to remember is to never leave it on all the time. The 4WD system draws a lot more power since it needs to send in power to all four wheels, so it ends up using more fuel and electricity. But I don’t want you to think that because of this, you don’t need to invest in some quality Range Rover Sport accessories. It’s not that you need to have the 4WD system on in order to benefit from these Range Rover Sport car accessories.
Essential 4×4 Range Rover Sport Accessories
One accessory that I have benefited from the most is a bullbar. Bullbars are made of metal or plastic and go on the front of your Range Rover Sport. But why would you want that? Well, if you off-road frequently, then you might want to protect your vehicle and yourself from any collisions with animals, trees, and rocks. Just a reminder, I would suggest you take a look at different types of bull bars before you go for the beefiest one as it’s not always the best choice.
Nothing is more depressing than when you get bogged down in the outback. To help you get out of a puddle, I recommend you stock up on recovery gear. This includes recovery boards, a shovel, D-shackle, a recovery strap, a snatch block and so on. If you have an electric winch, then you can extract yourself by having the cable of the winch attached to a tree or a rock.
When you want to go for a long drive in the wild you need to ensure that both the electronics in your vehicle and your Range Rover Sport accessories are going to get enough juice. Having a separate battery for the vehicle and a battery for your fridge or charging brick, you can ensure that your vehicle won’t stop working when your fridge does and vice versa.
The same goes for the fuel tank when you want to cover a lot of distance with your Range Rover Sport. A long-range fuel tank is what I and a lot of off-road enthusiasts get as soon as we get back from our first trip. This can either come as an upgrade to your Sport’s existing fuel tank or you can replace it fully.
If you don’t want to go around deep water and just feel like barging through it like a real man, then you should consider installing a snorkel on your Range Rover Sport. This plastic accessory is able to direct cooler and cleaner air into the air intake of your engine which usually sits on the side of your Range Rover Sport.
If towing is something you practise just as much as I do, then you would gladly accept the benefits towing (extended) mirrors offer. Just as their name suggests, these side view mirrors extended further out and give you a wider field of view. You can see what’s going on at the back with ease without having to get out of your vehicle every 5 seconds.
If you want to maximise the storage space of your Range Rover Sport I suggest you get a cargo basket or cage. Any of the two will work and unlike roof racks, they will keep your items safe no matter the size and shape. As long as you are able to fit the tool or equipment on a roof basket/cage, you’re good to go. Just make sure you secure the items before starting your trip.
