BIG BEAR TRAIL DAY A HIT

BIG BEAR TRAIL DAY A HIT

So I am sure you have heard me say this before and I will say it again…. We love off-roading and we love to have people join us! A few times a year we will invite our friends and customers to hit the trails with us. We do different levels of trails and yes sometimes we push people to go a little bit beyond what they are use to… but I always say it’s better to go out and learn how to handle these terrains with people that know what they are doing for your first time then. Whenever we are invited to go out with Off-Roaders that are more experienced then us, we also try to say yes… It’s were we learn the most. So, if you are ever nervous about joining one of our trial days, don’t be, we are here for you!
So, a few weeks ago we hit the trials of Big Bear, Ca. We met up in Fawnskin, CA at 9:30 am on a pretty warm Saturday for our local mountains where we briefed the group on trail etiquette for those new to the scene. Wheels were up at 10:00 am as we departed north on Rim of the World Drive to the trail head at 3N14. We had 33 vehicles join us from all over southern California show up for a fun (unofficial) trail day on a early Saturday morning. From modified Jeeps, stock Jeeps and SUVs to Raptors, full-size trucks and daily drivers. Of course we took our 2019 Ford Ranger to lead the group, and our Gen 1 Ford Raptor for our recovery/Chase vehicle.
We had a pretty amazing group…. large, but amazing mix. A lot of new faces joined us and some familiar faces attended to also lend a hand and support the group including Sean Holman and Jay Tilles from The Truck Show Podcast, the team (Cody, Matt, and Jose) from Trail Chasers Podcast (talk about some fun radio banter), Funshine Jeep Girls Club, Jason and Marcel from Auto Revolution, AJ and the Team from Paramount Automotive and Dave Cole, creator of ULTRA4 Racing and King of the Hammers. Make sure to check out the links below from Trail Chasers and Truck Show Podcast to hear what they had to say about our adventure.
We followed the planned route that we pre-ran a few weeks before using our OnX GPS app and can confidently report that everyone had a great time, even the few vehicles that had to decline the hill climbs because their vehicles just weren’t quite equipped to make the obstacles. Maybe they’ll take advantage of our July Summer Sale going on now (shameless business plug 😉 – details below).
In the end, everyone tackled their fears and did a great job out on the trail. We can’t wait to do it again soon. Hopefully we will see you out in the dirt with us!
Many thanks to everyone who attended and thank you for supporting our small business during this time! We appreciate you!
Thanks!

This Saturday ? Trail Day, July 11th
We are excited you are JOINING US in Big Bear! We will be heading out for a mild day of off-roading in the Big Bear Mountain area on July 11th!

We love to explore the different tails that are right in our back yard and would like to invite you to join us! This will be a mild to moderate off-road trail day (perfect for beginners). Nothing too challenging, but there will be some narrow, off-camber areas and some loose or mild rock sections; nothing difficult, great for learning and fun for everyone!

Since we are all responsibly practicing social distancing we will keep our stops to a minimum and as such this is an unofficial trail run. That said, we will stop randomly and briefly if there are area we want to explore and you may do so at your own risk. We want to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and its not safe to go off-roading alone, especially if you are new to off-road driving. This is a great way to meet others that love to drive on dirt (like us) and we will be onsite to assist if needed. If you need help on the trail please feel free to ask and we will give you the best guidance we can.

BAJA FORGED’s line of products will be available through our retail website LGE-CTS Motorsports and eventually, other authorized retailers so that we can offer them worldwide.

 

Products available for immediate shipping are as follows:

 

 

” You love LGE-CTS Motorsports for our signature style builds, creating off-road products that enhance the look of the vehicle with contoured designs that functions just as well as they look.   LGE-CTS will continue to be the premier shop to build these vehicles, but we are excited to finally offer our BAJA FORGED off-road product line to those of you all over the world asking about building one of our designs yourself .” – Theresa

OnX GPS APP

For our Trail run we will be using the OnX GPS App to track and download our run. We highly suggest that you download this app before you head out on the trail. Make sure to track the run and save it for the next time you want to go back out and see what trails you have already done.
Airing Up or Airing Down….Make sure you have the Right PSI
ARB E-Z DEFLATOR This is one of my favorite gauages to use. We have them in all of our rigs. They are EZ and fast to use.
VIAIR 400PA Air Compressor Kit We have on board air systems on most of our vehicles, but we also have a couple of portable compressors that are great to put in any vehicles for a road trip, on or off-road.
Recovery Gear and More
ARB SPEEDY SEAL PUNCTURE REPAIR KIT SERIES II So if anyone has heard my story about double flatting on Mojave….Good thing the guys brought one of these along.
WARN Heavy-Duty Epic Recovery Kit This recovery kit has everything you need, strap, tree trunk strap, shackles, gloves and carrying bag. For 5 years I didn’t use my recovery kit, then one trip to Moab and i used it 5x’s that trip. So you never know.
Hi-Lift Jack If you have ever taken one of our suspension 101 classes or have been on a trail day with us. I usually talk about Hi-Lift jacks and how amazing they are for so many different reasons. If you buy one from us, let me know if you want me to give you a quick lesson on how to use it properly.
PRO Eagle Jacks This is another item you will find in each one of our vehicles at all time. In fact we had to use it on the freeway today with our Super Duty, you never know when you will get a flat. We were just thankful it was a fast and speedy tire change because we had the right tools.
1Life Trama Kit First Aid kit are a must, but this Trama kit is so much more. A guy named Josh created this kit after being out in the middle of no where and is friend almost lost his life, so josh wanted to make sure to put a kit together that had everything that they could have used. These are a must have for every vehicle.
BOXO Tool Roll Boxo tools are a great tool kit and come with an even better warratny. We have this kit at our shop on display and I love how organized the boxes are. They also come in different color combinations so you can customize them to your liking. I highly recommend them for your garage or vehicle.
