For those of us that contribute to TCT Magazine and for those of you that read TCT Magazine the DzLove of Off Roadingdz is in our blood.  We love to simply Dzget out theredz and get away from our busy city lives, see what few have seen, and take in a surreal sunset or sunrise... or both!  The deeper we go or the higher we climb may find us wanting more from the vehicles we drive.   To achieve the desired result or travel to the most remote locations requires us to modify or improve our vehicles.   This same desire is shared by the family that makes up Low Range Off Road.

It was photographically addicting to capture the reflection of the season on top of trucks painted metal surfaces. The beautiful surroundings made the trails long as you cannot help but stop to collect photographs.


While traveling the rugged roads of Vermont and the VOR trail systems, it was easy to find muddy terrain and the need to be prepared for rescue.  These conditions made for some fun obstacles and some extra difficulty in directing vehicles through the terrain. While driving through the mud, I often felt like I was on ice or snow; when I veer right, I felt the vehicle disobey and veer to the left.  

TCT stayed in the heart of the rally by camping in CVT roof top tents in the center of the Lillie Brook Farm, open to its attendees for the entirety of the event. It was very fascinating to see the vast assemblage of different makes and models in attendance at the Vermont Overland Rally. The makes we observed included Toyota, Jeep, Range Rover, Dodge, Mercedes and even Subaru.

The main attractions for the Rally included group off road tours (VOR mapped) and classes for off-road preparedness: extreme recovery techniques, preparing yourself and your vehicle for an expedition, vehicle conversions, CPR and first aid, vehicle maintenance, documentation for media and winning VOT information. Additional features included workshops for kids, vendors, overland movies, dinners which included local foods and produce (Lillie Brook Farm), a raffle and a bon fire.

The highlight of our tour at the Vermont Overland Rally was conversing with members of OEX (Overland Experts) and observing their rare Toyota vehicles which include a Toyota Hilux D-4 TDI and a Toyota Land Cruiser 150 Prado D4-D diesel. Their field of work includes training the public and the military in off-road rescue and preparedness.

The Vermont Overland Rally encompasses challenges and tools for stock vehicles and beginner drivers, to fully loaded vehicles and advanced knowledgeable drivers. If you plan to visit the beautiful and bountiful Northeast, give Vermont Overland Rally a try. Rain or shine, you can wheel as much or as little as you want, stay behind and take a lesson, or just hang out and relax to enjoy the scenery and hospitality. We at TCT, had a memorable time and look forward to what 2016 has to offer.

The task of identifying solid brands that rival higher priced brands in performance and quality can be daunting. Furthermore, adding multiple lights means adding rocker switches, which means looking for dashboard real estate for cutting slots if the few spares Toyota provided in the truck are already occupied. In this review, we’ll examine a quality LED brand and a switch solution using a space-saving LCD screen.

The red dirt state isn’t exactly known for being an off-road expedition destination.

Instead of a 22RE, he pursued another Toyota engine:  the 4.0 Liter V8, which was utilized in various 1990’s era Lexus vehicles, as well as the LeMans MR2.

    As seen on the web series Expedition Overland during their Central America tour, Bushwacker has just announced availablility of their Pocket Style Fender Flares for 2014–2016 Toyota 4Runner.

    Bushwacker flares for 5th Gen 4Runner

    The flares (which are not compatible with Limited models) provide 1.5-inches of tire coverage front and rear, which makes them perfect for wider tires. We've always enjoyed the rugged look fender flares add to Toyota Trucks, and these fit the bill perfectly.
