But how do you turn a luxury SUV into a serious off-road vehicle? First you need more ground clearance, best achieved by a bigger wheel combined with improved lift. This means specialty tires with maximum grip, even in sand, mud or snow.
Creating a true expedition vehicle requires a solid roof rack that can hold traction plates, sand shovels, water canisters, boxes, and maybe even a roof tent. A front bracket protects the sensitive parts of the vehicle, such as the cooling systems. As a superior design feature, the roof rack and front bracket are perfect for installing additional lighting. To this effect, delta4x4 has been using Japanese PIAA headlights for more than 30 years, which are about the most solid solution available on the market. Shock tested for up to 4x gravitational acceleration they have brought rally contestants and race cars to their ultimate goal for decades.
Additional options are typically a snorkel system for traversing deep bodies of water, as well as a solid, stable undercarriage protection. This must include a well protected exhaust system that ensures higher performance through less flow restrictions, with a more beautiful sound.
