Off-roading is often for the adventurous thrill-seeking explorer and quite dangerous. C’mon right? it’s not uncommon to see thrill-seeking and danger placed in the same sentence. Off-roading at night is undoubtedly even more dangerous; not only are you driving on rough, bumpy, less populated terrain, you can barely see where you’re going. So how do you make this thrill-seeking activity safer? Equip yourself with must-haves before you set off on your late night adventures. Off-roading essentials include having mud/all-terrain tires, lifted suspension, and good LED light bars.

They provide a stylish look in the day and remarkably bright lighting at night to help you foresee any potholes, rocks, fallen branches and other objects in your vicinity.
Let’s face it – we can all be a little more attentive to our car headlights. When’s the last time you’ve taken a look at your headlights? Chances are it can use a little cleaning, tender, love and care. Over time our headlights tend to wear down easily and appear to have a cloudy haze over them since most are primarily made of polycarbonate plastic. Over time, UV Rays from the sun cause oxidation to the outer surface of the plastic headlights (formerly glass until the 1980s).

Thankfully, there are a lot of products available to keep your headlights shining like new that take little time and are reasonably priced. There are many inexpensive headlight restoration kits on the market to help polish your lights back into how they were or even better! Here are some tips to restoring your headlights back to their better days.
