Winterize Your Jeep for Chicago Weather
If you live in the Chicagoland area, you are most likely familiar with how painstakingly cold and brutal Chicago winter weather can be. For those who will be spending more time driving in the snow such as commuting, traveling for business, or holiday family trips, we recommend that you winterize your Jeep to prepare for the colder months ahead!
Tips for Winterizing Your Jeep Chicago IL
While Jeeps are rugged and outdoor friendly, you still need to prepare it for adequate weather conditions to ensure safe travels. Follow these three simple rules of thumb below to winterize your Jeep:
- Check Your Fluid- The foremost tip to keep in mind as the winter approaches is to check your antifreeze fluid. To prevent the water in your radiator from freezing, the mixture should be 50:50. One way you can ensure this is by having one of our certified technicians inspect your vehicle.
- Check Your Four-Wheel Drive- Jeep’s 4×4 function provides better traction when driving on icy, slippery, and snowy roads. Not sure how to check this? Stop by St. Charles CDJR on your way home to have one of our factory trained technicians show you how and inspect your vehicle before it get too chilly!
- Check Your Tires- Consider replacing your tires with a fresh set as the colder weather causes air pressure in your tires to drop significantly. Visit our Jeep Mopar parts store for authentic Jeep tires that are high quality and help you get a better grip of the roads all winter long.
