Thanks to the movement of the Earth’s crust and the Pacific plate pushing underneath the North American plate, the mountains in the western United States were formed. Here in Las Vegas, we are so lucky to be in an easy driving distance of the Rocky, Sierra, and Cascade mountains. However, these rugged mountain ranges can be difficult to drive through. The passes going through these mountain ranges include steep inclines/declines, along with hairpin turns. The road to Yosemite National Park in California is especially notorious for these characteristics – and some areas do not even have guardrails! Driving through that area is not for the faint of heart!
If you plan on trekking through the mountain ranges anytime soon, it is imperative that your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM is prepared. While many of today’s Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM models (especially the Jeeps and RAM trucks) are built to handle rough terrain and come available with all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive (which provide a solid grip on those mountain roads), there are a few maintenance tasks that should be performed to help keep you safe.
When you bring your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM to the service center here at Desert 215 Superstore and you let us know what your travel plans are, our highly-skilled service technicians will put extra care into making sure that your brakes and transmission are working properly to help you get up and down those mountains smoothly. They will also inspect the tires to ensure that they will deliver safe performance.
