Challenge The Large Water Crossings In The Marble Head Trail With 2015 Toyota 4Runner

Welcome back, trail folks! 😎Our trail ambassador of this month is Trevor @sfarco, a guy who loves Overlanding, camping, fabrication, and automotive! Let's follow Trevor and know more about how he challenged the large water crossings in the Marble Head Trail.

● So, Trevor, introduce a bit more about yourself? What keeps you overlanding and off-roading?

I love the outdoors and automobiles! I have a YouTube channel named SFARCO that is all about camping, overlanding, fabrication, and more! The adventure, finding new places, and encountering new challenges keep me overlanding and off-roading.

● Tell us about the trail, why that location? What was the coolest moment? Any scary or recovery moments?

We went Drummond Island which has several fun trails and great scenery. We didn't need any recoveries but there were a few larger water crossings that could have been troublesome.

● What makes this a difficult or easy trail?

One of my group was driving a Ford Maverick and there were side trails he was able to use to bypass the hard parts. But there were still challenges like rock steps and large water crossings.

● Would you recommend this trail to anyone or more experienced folks? Why?

Drummond Island has trails of varying difficulty making it a great place for new or experienced offroaders.

● What is your favorite or dream trail and why?

Drummond Island had many trails that were great and I didn't even get to drive them all, I really liked Marble Head and Mu's Nemesis.

● In your opinion, are there any modifications or accessories that everyone has to have?

High clearance and recovery gear.

● How important is proper lighting strategy for the trail? Do you have any suggestions about lighting set-up for trail riders?

Very important. You never know when you are going to be out later than you planned. Improper lighting on these trails would be a huge mistake and could even be dangerous. I would suggest that you can replace your stock bulbs with Lasfit bulbs and add some Lasfit ditch lights and light bars.

● I noticed that you had quite large water crossings during this trail, can you tell us more about how the mats did well for your trail?

As far as the water crossings, I actually didn't have any water enter the cabin but if it had the Lasfit liners would definitely outperform the stock carpet mats. They would obviously get saturated and take forever to dry.

And when dealing with mud, the dirt gets ground into the carpet making it virtually impossible to fully clean. The Lasfit liners clean up easily with just water.

● Really glad to hear that you actually liked our mats and they had helped you with the cleanliness.

Yes they have made my 4runner look much nicer on the inside too. The original mats were completely worn out.

Lasfit 32" Behind Grille Amber Light Bar Install And Review | For 2021 Toyota 4Runner

by Lasfit Official November 29, 2022

"There are many brands out in the market trying to get their share of the off-road community's growing population. Lasfit is no different. They have a great price point for their lightbars: just a bit cheaper than Diode Dynamics, and hundreds cheaper than Baja Designs. It's a great plug and play solution. They're great for a starting point, and frankly, I don't see why I would upgrade to anyone else."

"Lasfit’s system is 100% automatic. Once installed, locking with the key fob (or a button press of the door) automatically locks the hood. You can then unlock the hood by pressing the unlock button on the key fob. Really can’t get simpler than that!"
