Loading Your Vehicle for Off-RoadDriving

CAUTION:
• Cargo on the load floor piled higher than the seatbacks can be thrown forward during a sudden stop. You or your passengers could be injured.

Keep cargo below the top of the seatbacks.
• Unsecured cargo on the load floor can be tossed about when driving over rough terrain. You or your passengers can be struck by flying objects.

Secure the cargo properly.
• Heavy loads on the roof raise the vehicle’s center of gravity, making it more likely to roll over. You can be seriously or fatally injured if the vehicle rolls over. Put heavy loads inside the cargo area, not on the roof.

Keep cargo in the cargo area as far forward and low as possible.

There are some important things to remember about how to load your vehicle.

• The heaviest things should be on the load floor and forward of your rear axle. Put heavier items as far forward as you can.
• Be sure the load is secured properly, so driving on the off-road terrain does not toss things around.

You will find other important information in this manual.
