Have you checked out the forecast lately? Cold. Freezing. Colder. Even colder. Yeah, it basically just goes on like that. While you may be excited about hot chocolate, sledding, and cozy movie nights by the fireplace, you probably aren’t excited for scraping your windshield, shoveling your driveway, and definitely not for driving on icy roads.

Even if you have a vehicle equipped for slick terrains like a new Jeep® Wrangler or Dodge Durango, it’s still important that you take extra precautions to prepare for the weather. Make sure your tires have appropriate tread to help with traction. Also, you’ll want to ensure your RAM truck has sandbags in the back to increase friction for the lighter bed of your truck.

Cold months can also be hard on your car’s interior, particularly with undue stress under the hood. In fact, a faulty battery can become completely useless if it gets too cold. Make sure it is working properly before you get out in the snow. You’ll also want to make sure your antifreeze level is good to avoid your radiator getting too cold. Double-check your windshield wiper fluid too; you definitely don’t want to be stuck without it.
