What are your recommendations for Mazda CX5 off-road mods?
I currently own a stock 2018 Mazda CX5 Touring AWD. I drive rough dirt roads and fire roads often for camping, rock climbing, and biking, but it’s a little rough on my car. Can you recommend any Mazda CX5 off-road mods that might make my trips a bit easier?
Answer provided by
- Lift the CX5 to clear the biggest possible tires (31”). Lifted tires help keep the drive train safe off-road.
- Add a roof rack to keep all of your camping/climbing/biking gear safe—Yakima models work well on the CX5
- Install some amber LED grill lights, so other drivers can more easily see you coming toward them in bad weather or on dark dirt roads
- Add fender flares to provide additional coverage on your new, larger tires
