We've only seen one photo, and even though the FT-4X concept will be revealed in just a couple of days, the TCT team can't help but dream.
The last time we were this excited about a concept was well, before our magazine event existed. It was 2003 and the FJ Cruiser concept was revealed at the Chicago Auto show. The original concept had plenty of little fun things (like a gear shifter that doubled as a shovel handle) that were obviously just for show. Still, the design (that came from Calty Design Research) inspired thousands. The production FJC ended up inspiring our media company and in many ways re-invigorated the Toyota 4x4 world.
Our TCT Explorer Tundra just rolled 40,000 miles. It’s been a fun two years =). Our move to the Tundra platform was inspired in large part by the Toytec Lifts 2014 Tundra, so I thought it was the time we give that truck a little more attention.
As a contributor of this fair publication I get to see, and even sometimes drive, some very special off-roading creations...so it's not that often that I get stopped in my tracks by a Land Cruiser. It was only an hour after my first coffee so admittedly my mental faculties are not at their most trustworthy at this time of day, but several of my senses worked together to convince me that what I was seeing was real. Land Rover have their 127 and 130 crew cab pickups but Toyota doesn't have an equivalent, at least, I didn't think so... but here on the streets of a little village in Brazil, was what looked like a double-cab 40 series driving towards me. Full of people in the back they were obviously going on some kind of off-road safari! The driver mistook my bewilderment in his car for interest in a tour and handed me a leaflet. A phone call later and we arranged to go on a trip in the surrounding jungle the next day. Easy.
