Hi guys! It's Melissa here!😊
First I have to say my Jeep is not my daily driver. It was supposed to be but once I got it I was immediately obsessed with it. Quickly after I got it, I was already lifting it, putting on new wheels and tires, and hitting the trails. Once I did that I knew I wouldn’t be able to use this as my daily as I’m in sales and have to travel almost daily all over SoCal. Not only did I not want to put the miles on my Jeep, but I also wanted to keep it for fun times. Since then I have personally built my jeep to fit my needs as I take on more and more trails and continue to up my off-road skills.
Today, I mainly wanted to talk to you guys about the off-road lights on my jeep.
Why did I want to add pod lights? At first, it was purely for looks…cause they make you look cool right? Haha. Since I got my first cheap set on Amazon I realized they really play a purpose. I use them on trails during the day so the jeep in front of me can see me in the dirt and dust as well as oncoming off-road vehicles. I also wanted to start doing night runs. Which I have since.
Then I stumbled upon Lasfit 3" pod light on IG, I chose its spot beam pattern. Just because I wanted the spot for more light, the yellow flood to cut through the dust and turn on when it’s rainy or bad weather.
White spot inside, yellow flood point front/outward. I hooked up to different switches so I can use them at the same time or independently.
I have them as ditch lights mounted on each side of my hood by the windshield. I have the spot for brightness and the yellow for cutting dust and to use when I'm not offroading but want to not blind people. I tend to not be in the front of our caravan and the lead jeep loves that they can see the end and know we are all ok.
I have really put the pods to the test in trails and they haven't skipped a beat. Everything I expected! They are clear and light up not only frontwards but to the sides as well. If I hit something, that's on me!!
I love Lasfit because they are high-quality lights at a reasonable price. Not only that, every single person I talk to or worth with is awesome to work with.
There're so many builds I'm going to upgrade for my beloved Jeep in the future! Light wise I'd like to have something in my fenders and under. Nothing flashy.
*Hopefully, this helps you out if you're in the market for some new off-road lights and/or are curious about the Lasfit 3″ Pods/Light Bars. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or comments.
