2016 Toyota Tacoma Toyota Hilux Global PlatformWith the Toyota Tacoma very much long in the tooth (it's been 10 years since the 2nd generation came out), and rumors of a "global" Toyota Truck platform still circulating, this really could be what the 3rd generation Tacoma / Hilux pickup looks like.

Cruise Moab 2014This week is going to be very busy for many Toyota Cruiser, Truck, and SUV fans, as two major events kick off to start the Spring adventure season!

You know TCT Magazine has you covered =)

Jonathan Harris is leading the overnight Kokopelli Trail Run at Cruise Moab, and Bob Holliday will be on hand during the event to cover all the best Toyota Truck excitement.

Phillip Jones is heading to the 2014 Lone Star Jamboree and will bring back amazing photos and great storeis.

Redline Land Cruisers from Colorado Springs has announced that they will begin production on custom 4-Door FJ-40 Land Cruiser bodies built on an 80 Series Land Cruiser chassis.


The all-new way of getting your entire family into a classic Land Cruiser will be a first for normal people. While the 4-Door model has been available from custom builder Icon in the past, Redline will be the first to offer this model for under $50k. Priced at $49,900 for their base model (which includes a donor 80 Series), the FJ-UTE offers passenger seating in the first, 2nd and optional 3rd row.

This week we have a great shot from Jonathan Harris from the 2013 Cruise Moab Event, while running the Kokopelli Trail.

Join Jonthan on the Kokopelli this year! Registration is open for Cruise Moab 2014.

Since the Lone Star Cruiser Roundup starts this week, we thought a nice video showcasing FJ Cruisers at Katemcy Rocks would a good Toyota Video Of the Week.

After much deliberation and countless discussions among our team, we've made the tough decision to cancel printed subscriptions to TCT Magazine.

As it turns out, printing and mailing are very expensive, and with many people still struggling due to current economic conditions, they just can't justify spending cash on content that we provide for free via electronic delivery.

Since we announced TCT Magazine subscriptions, only about 1.5% of those that looked out our subscription page actually subscribed. At that rate, we wouldn't hit 1,500 subscribers until mid-2015, which isn't fair to those that have already subscribed.

Also, it's not very responsible to purchase thousands of magazines that may never be used. Most major magazines regularly print 1,000+ extra copies as give-aways for events and vendors. In the end many of these copies end up in recycling (hopefully) or in a landfill in the worst cases. In our minds that kind of excess no only wastes money, but is not very environmentally friendly.

We really wanted to do printed subscriptions for those that prefer the feel of paper when enjoying our magazine, but we just can't make it happen right now.

There is good news though!

100% of subscription money will be refunded. Many checks were never cashed & will be returned to the sender, credit card payments that were processed will be refunded (most were not), and paypal payments will be refunded or returned.

Also, everyone that has signed up will receive their Founder sticker, our way of thanking you for your support. If you don't see your sticker in the next few weeks, please send us an e-mail and we'll TCT Magazine Printed copies on Way2Tread.comget one out to you. Remember, founder stickers are only for those that signed up for a printed subscription before we cancelled that option.

You can still help support TCT Magazine in several ways!

  • If you like what we're doing and would like to see TCT live for a long time, please tell everyone you know about our mag and support our Advertisers & Partners.

  • We've also added a Tip Jar to the site if you'd like to throw some beer money our way :)
  • Finally, we're offering printed copies through our print-on-demand partner MagCloud at a small discount. These will be collector items as we will only print a (very) small number of each issue. These collector editions of TCT Magazine will include a square binding and will be shipped directly from us to you in a padded envelope. They're available on the Way2Tread Store and will cost $16/each. Learn more on the Way2Tread Website.
