How to Prepare for the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer
As summer approaches, many teenagers and young adults are eager to hit the road!
However, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day is known to see a dramatic increase in teen-related crashes. Over 7,000 people lost their lives in such crashes between 2010 and 2019.
This is known as the "100 Deadliest Days of Summer."
Whether you are a new or an experienced driver, there are a few key pieces of equipment that can enhance your driving experience while keeping you and others around you safe. In this guide, we’ll be discussing blind spot cameras, in-dash GPS navigation systems, lighting equipment, and more. These items might not be at the top of your mind, but they can make a huge difference in preventing accidents and creating safe driving habits. Let’s dive in!
Back Up and Blind Spot Cameras
Navigating busy roads requires careful attention and quick reflexes, especially when backing up or changing lanes. That's why back up and blind spot cameras have become essential for drivers of all ages. Our IP67-rated, Universal Wireless Back Up Camera is designed to assist you while backing in or out, with the help of parking guidelines. For those who prefer the option of a front or rear facing camera, we recommend our versatile, IP68-rated Universal License Plate Camera.
To make it even easier, we put together the Universal Multi-Configurable AHD/CVBS Camera Kit - consisting of 5 cameras that cover your front, rear, and sides; allowing you to avoid collisions and stay aware of your surroundings.
In todays age, it's not enough to have eyes on the road, but you also need memory. That is why we offer the 9.3" Universal Full Screen Rear-View Mirror Replacement Monitor Kit, complete with a DVR and back up camera featuring a 64GB memory card, loop cycle recording for 1, 3, and 5 minutes, and optional audio recording.
While some newer vehicles can come equipped with cameras, you are able to update older cars with aftermarket kits. However, we highly recommend employing a professional installation service. Do not risk your safety on the road - upgrade your vehicle with our state-of-the-art camera technology and stay protected.
In-Dash GPS Navigation Systems
Driving requires your full attention, and using your phone for GPS can put you and other drivers at risk. Investing in an in-dash GPS navigation system is a wise choice. At Stinger Off-Road, we offer options to suit all needs and budgets. Our top-of-the-line Stinger HEIGH10 Radio Replacement Kit boasts a vehicle-specific integration module, a 10-inch touchscreen monitor, plug-n-play installation and features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth functionality allowing you to navigate, control your music, and answer calls without comprimising your attention on the road.
It comes SiriusXM ready and offers an optional iGo Navigation Card for easy music selection and navigation without using cellular data.
If you are looking for something more affordable, we have something else up our sleeve. The 6.8" Touchscreen Double DIN Radio Replacement Kit includes a vehicle-specific PAC module to retain your OEM steering wheel controls while offering access to functions like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth to allow hands-free calling and enhance safety by limiting phone usage.
Regardless of the model you choose, an in-dash GPS navigation system can help you focus on the road ahead and get you to your destination safely!
While vehicle lighting is usually not the most exciting driving equipment, it is unquestionably one of the most important. Installing aftermarket headlights or taillights can help increase your visibility and allow other drivers to see you on the road, especially in low-light conditions or during bad weather. They are also crucial for signaling other drivers and pedestrians of your intentions.
Safety doesn't have to be synonymous with boring! Elevate your style with custom headlights that perfectly match your vibe, such as halo headlights that boast a stunning array of colors. You could consider upgrading with modifications like new LED taillights, maybe a Jeep light bar, or even Ford Bronco fog lights to take your vehicles clarity to the next level.
Make sure to check out our collection of lighting kits! We offer a comprehensive range of must-have essentials, including DOT approved headlights, taillights, light bars, and more. With top-quality products, you can rest assured that you will have everything you need to stay safe and visible.
Seat covers may not seem like a safety essential, but hear us out. When driving, you spend a lot of time in your car seat.
Over time, it can get dirty and worn down. Custom seat covers can protect from spills, stains, or wear and tear, making it more comfortable and long-lasting. A comfortable seat can help prevent driver fatigue and keep you alert on long road trips.
Our new additions of water-resistant seat covers for 2-door and 4-door Jeep Wranglers keep your seats looking as good as new. Made from neoprene fabric, the same material used in wetsuits and gloves, these covers are tough, durable, and built to last. With a choice of stylish black, deep red, or classic tan colors, enhance your Jeeps look while ensuring it stays clean and protected.
If you are anything like us, you might have a habit of tracking dirt and mud into your car. But keeping your car clean isn’t just about appearance - it’s also about safety. Dirty liners can accumulate a lot of debris, which can get stuck under the gas and brake pedals, causing them to malfunction. To prevent this, invest in some high-quality floor liners.
Stinger Off-Road offers custom-fit floor liners for your Ford Bronco or Jeep Wrangler. The Weatherbeater and X-Act Contour Floor Liners stay firmly in place, thanks to the Factory Retention Posts. They feature the patented FormFitEdge, a raised ridge along the door jam to contain messes. Plus, they are easy to clean – just a little water and elbow grease is all it takes. Not only will they keep your car cleaner, but they will also keep you more secure on the road.
Safe driving is all about being prepared and intentional. Investing in preventative and safe driving equipment will enhance your driving experience and ensure the safety of yourself and your passengers. Remember- you have the power to make good choices behind the wheel, and the right equipment can give you the extra support you need.
