Overlanding in Moab

Heading to the Promised Land

As it warms up, it’s time for cool nights overlanding in rural Utah. If you’re wondering where to start, you can’t go wrong overloading in Moab. 

Overlanding in Moab

Moab’s red walls and desert landscape are sure to mimic your wildest dreams. Whether you’re most excited to check out Arches National Park or Canyonlands National Park, don’t forget about the options off the beaten path.

Let’s be honest, Utah’s state parks are more magnificent than some other states’ national parks. If you’re interested in hiking, mountain biking, or rock climbing, Moab is the perfect starting point for your adventure. 

Southern Utah Overlanding

Get your truck ready for the overloading adventure of a lifetime. By starting with a low-profile tonneau cover, and adding racks, your shelter will be up in no time. This leaves your truck bed for everything else you’ll need — water, food, gear, emergency supplies, and camp equipment.

The best overloading setup is going to be the one ready to take on the desert’s unpredictable weather. At the most fundamental level, your tonneau cover needs to be strong — not just in terms of security, though that’s important too. Your expensive gear needs to be safe if you head out for the day. But your truck bed cover also needs to be extremely capable. How much weight can it bear? Is it built to last?

LED Lights on Truck Bed

Light up the Night

Whether a truck bed light kit is a high priority, or a fixture on your wishlist, the options may seem never-ending. If you want to tailgate in style, decorative options are limitless. But LED lights on a truck bed can also be incredibly functional as part of your overloading set up or on your tonneau cover. 

LED Lights on Truck Bed

Practically speaking, custom LED lights can be installed in your truck bed to drive better nighttime visibility. These are an obvious choice over traditional lights which easily overheat and bun out quickly. But more to the point, tonneau lighting can supplement the cargo lights in the bed, flooding it with light.

Plus, it can provide added security, as some LED truck bed lights are even motion activated. Whether you want to check on your cargo, or simply scare off passerby or raccoons, a DIY kit may be the way to go.

An after-market truck bed lighting system is even more crucial if you decide to get into overloading. The adventures you’ll have during the day lose their charm if you can’t relive them each night over dinner. While a campfire sets a certain mood, the increasing fire restrictions due to drought can be a real bummer.

Also, if you get up to use the bathroom or because you hear a noise, being able to light up your campsite is going to be crucial. No more stumbling around in the dark? Sold. It just may be that adding LED lights to your overland rig will make the whole experience that much more enjoyable. 

Considerations for LED Lights on Truck Bed

DIY truck bed cargo lights may seem like a simple accessory, but there are actually a lot of considerations. Do they come with a warranty? How easy will they be to install? What will the power draw be on the truck battery (and do you know how to hardwire them)? What’s their brightness and is there a halo effect? 

You might also consider color options, whether or not they have a remote, features (strobe, blinking, chasing), and sound (some synchronize with music!). Beyond their durability and the price you’re willing to pay, it’s also important to be aware of any restrictions which may vary from state to state. For example, you don’t want to get confused with the flashing lights of emergency vehicles.
