download_now60 Series Land Cruiser is a great classic overland platform  | TCT Magazine January 2014Our Toyotas are more than a simple mode of transportation. They are an extension of ourselves, both in personality and functionality. Besides the obvious reason of dashing good looks, we choose a particular make and model based on how we expect it to perform in the myriad conditions we’re likely to encounter during ownership. And when factory offerings are not generous enough, we’ll spend thousands in hard-earned dollars on aftermarket accessories to ensure that our vehicle is as close to ideal as possible. This principle rings true whether hanging some seatback DVD players in the Swagger Wagon or plumbing nitrous into a Supra for track days.   

    It’s certainly true for we adventurous, backcountry travelers, who depend on our Yotas to not only get us out there, but more importantly, to get us back. So considering the levels of investment and expectation we place on our overlanding vehicles, it’s imperative to our wallets, our well-being, and our pleasure that we choose wisely.

After climbing into the 2014 Trail Edition 4Runner and sliding onto the seat, it takes a minute to soak in the rather lavish interior. Starting the engine brings the colorful gauges and a mid-console screen to life. Gripping the steering wheel is a treat. A glance across the dash and console assemblies and one quickly realizes that Toyota has upped the ante with interior treatment. Toyota has brought elegance to off-roading in ways that were previously experienced only in the upscale Lexus models.

    2013 4Runners at FJ Summit #7The FJ Summit is no longer just for FJ Cruisers, that’s for sure and it was a great event as usual.  Attendance, enthusiasm, and the number of beautiful rigs were at an all time high.  I love the fact that, more than at any other event that I have been to, you see families hanging out and having fun together in one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places on the planet.  It was a lot of fun for the kiddos to see friends that they only get to see at these events as well.  The weather this year was a wild mix of beautiful sunshine to torrential downpours, with bits of hail thrown in for good measure.

    Phillip JonesPhillip Jones is a semi-professional photographer, amateur astronomer, and Toyota off-road enthusiast. He is on his second 4Runner and hopes to hang onto this one until they take away his keys and lock him in a senior home for the too-old-to-drive.

    Published in TCT Magazine Team

    The Toyota 4Runner was introduced in 1984 as a slight modification to the Toyota (Hilux) Pickup. Modern 4Runner SUVs (5th Gen) are one of the major players in the US market for those wanting a durable truck-based SUV that's as comfortable on the road as it is on the trail. While plus Limited versions of the 4Runner have no place in the dirt, the utilitarian Trail Edition includes many off-road worthy features.
