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?

As a fan of backcountry camping, I understand what you mean. Unfortunately, those access roads can be brutal! Luckily, you can make a few off-road mods to your [Mazda CX5]( to make the commute easier, such as:
  • 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
