WHETHER you’re a new­bie to the four-wheel drive world or you’re an ex­pe­ri­enced off-road driver, just about every­one has some kind of bud­get when it comes to equip­ping a ve­hi­cle for the task at hand. These bud­gets will un­doubt­edly de­pend on per­sonal cir­cum­stances, but whether you’re just about skint or your wal­let is bulging with cash it’s vi­tally im­por­tant to spend what you have on the gear that’s go­ing to get you the best re­sult, no mat­ter what you drive or where you in­tend to drive it.

Of course, what and where will have big im­pli­ca­tions when it comes to how much money you’ll need to spend and what gear you’ll need to buy, but there are some ba­sic bits of kit that will uni­ver­sally im­prove the ca­pa­bil­ity of any four-wheel drive, whether it be a tiny four-pot screamer, a big lux­ury wagon or a ba­sic 4x4 ute.
