now if I had a successful youtube channel that could finance these purchases I'd 100% do it. but I don't see many people testing their $500 baja lights lol. many of the videos and reviews are installs and instructionals and some long term use updates. which is fine for most people but if you're up in the slush and snow and road salt, seeing durability testing would be helpful
yeah i hear you. Example last week my Goat armour finally showed up. It was like $650 or from GOAT. Then $125 Fedex slowboat ground shipping. Then HST at the border, DUTY and then Fedex brokerage. With exchange it more or less costed me $1250 all in. Not cheap.

Where you from up here in this shitland? Im near Toronto

I also have more respect for LASFIT for the reason you just mentioned. Literally they had zero input, never asked to see anything ahead of time to try to influence it and actually thanked me for being honest. They were receptive to my comments on the warranty length compared to BD and Rigid, and said that they would be discussing it with the higher ups. This at least to me shows that not only do they want the feedback but that they also are using it to make their products better. To me that speaks to the fact that they want honest feedback.

My father was born and grew up in Toronto. On Indian Grove near Dundas. Served with the Royal Canadian Engineers during the war. His brother was with the 48th highlanders and started in full combat on Anzio in Ď43. I have cousins who live in Missasauga, Scarborough and north of Toronto. I have not been back since the 80ís.

thank you to your father for his service. maybe your father and my grandfather crossed paths near Anzio lol. he fought for Italy around that time. there's actually a huge cemetary north of the city that has a large section dedicated to WWI and WWII veterans. there's old military equipment on display there as well, just a couple pieces. I've put on hundreds of miles through that cemetary with my dog when I lived in Toronto

Thanks. My uncle ended up marrying a girl from Naples. They had four children who are my first cousins and they all live outside the greater Toronto area.

You really don't have to keep justifying yourself. What you did is perfectly fine and appreciated by most. Some people just like to get REALLY into lighting discussions on here because they think everybody "needs" the most expensive stuff. Top of the line LED lighting is borderline unaffordable and the "cheap" stuff is starting to get actually pretty good.

Every lighting thread turns out this way, especially with LASFIT involved. I'm actually kind of proud of them for sticking around in a very saturated lighting market with a high end clientele.

Your right, I just canít stand when people make claims that I am being paid and all this other nonsense. Itís just amazing sometimes that something as simple as me posting a review and trying to help the 4Runner community through install videos and reviews turns into false accusations by some who have literally zero experience with the product they are claiming is sub par, junk, or cheap. But it is a forum and people have there opinions, even if wrong and unsubstantiated.

I however will continue to review and post 4Runner content of all types as my funds allow to continue to help where I can.
