Expedition Info

OK Let's get you ready for your Expedition

Step 1. Registration:

Thank you for reregistering with Off the GRID Expeditions. This page will help you prepare for your upcoming expedition.. 

We know your excitement will be building over the next few months. So let start by making sure that you and your UTV are 100% rear to take on the Baja.

Step 2. UTV Prep

UTV PREP

This is critical to any expedition we do. Once we cross over the US Mexican border service and parts are scarce to say the least. Although we are very well supplied with parts. Prep is the key to success in Baja. So what should you have prepped. It's a good idea to have a dealer or trained mechanic go over you entire UTV. All fluids, battery charged, CV's, Diff's and electrical checked and rechecked. Please keep this in mind.... Most customers drive their UTV's about 100 miles over a long weekend. We will be covering over 200 miles on day 1. 

 

Parts

All UTV's must have 1 spare tire on the vehicle at all times and it's a great idea to even bring 1 spare that will go on the chase truck. Belts - 2 or more belts on trail is key. CV's - 1 rear CV on trail is key. "Clutches" this is a tricky subject. If your has clutch issues bring a spare. Most all large, heavy parts can be stored o the chase trucks.
