Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

  • Tow strap: This comes in handy if your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicle gets stuck in a ditch and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap.
  • Fire extinguisher: This is excellent to have in the event of a small fire. However, make sure the fire extinguisher is intended for automotive use.
