Welcome back, trail folks! 😎Our trail leader of this month is Joshua@reptar_ram, the destination is Camp 5 in Lawrence, South Dakota, he has really put the Lasfit sport series off-road 3" LED pods to the test in the trail and it hasn't skipped a beat.
Let's follow Joshua and learn a little more about how the Lasfit 3" LED pods hit the Camp 5 Trail. I can't wait to show you guys how amazing it is on the Trail!
I use my truck for traveling back and forth to work, and also take family trips in it. I'm 42 married to an amazing woman and have 3 kids. We enjoy spending time outdoors and taking vacations To different locations. I used the current setup spot and flood patterns to light up the dark roads in Montana leaving Yellowstone on the way back to the house to make sure I could see the wildlife before I got to it.
The thrill of seeing different landscapes and animals while out on the trail. And also able to use the accessory lighting and see what my truck is capable of.
Camp 5 is right outside of deadwood South Dakota. Coolest moment taking a rocky path to a small creek bottom. No scary recovery moments but it was a little sketchy when going over the rocks with street tires.
This trail is a little of both. Need to definitely need to have a 4x4 and a small amount of lift. What makes this trail difficult is the jagged rocks and creek crossings. Also watch out for the four wheelers and side by side. The trails are very narrow in some sections.
To anyone. When arriving saw many rental side by sides coming and going. If the rental company is sending people to this location the I would say anyone could give it a shot.
I would love to give the dunes a try. Just looks like a lot of fun and high speed.
I would really consider you to have a good set of off-road tires and make you have recovery gear. If any even comes that you need a friend to get you out of a sticky situation.
For this trail, the flood lights are more important due to the trails being tight and wanting to see what's around you and what's coming up. It also helps people coming from the other way to see you before they get to you.
Have a set of flood lights in the front angling towards the corners to see what's directly on your left and right. And a good set of floods in the rear when having to back up on a dark trail. When out on a long open road a set of spots would do some great work to light up what's far ahead.
1. Price ( it’s something everyone can afford compared to others that aren’t reasonable and have the same output)
2. Durability (the take a true beating and keep working I’ve had my spots for over a year and they work amazingly)
3. Lighting patterns (I have a set of spots and a set of floods the spots reach way down the road and the floods light up the ditch and a very broad pattern)
They are amazing. They can take vibrations and at 80 mph on the interstate, there is no noise from them or hardly any movement. I would recommend lasfit to all my friends. The top reason is the price and how well the products are built and the lighting output.
