Our team is already enroute to Las Vegas, NV for the 2015 SEMA Show and we'll be #LIVEatSEMA all week long! Our coverage begins Monday morning so stay tuned to this page and our social networks.
To paraphrase Charles Dickens, ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was a weekend of sunshine, it was a weekend of rain (a lot or rain, oh and there was the snow too!).’ Despite the less than desirable weather, the Overland Expo team pulled off an amazing event. I think the weather actually brought everyone closer together. In fact, I don’t remember seeing anyone angry or frustrated due to the weather. I do remember seeing a lot of smiling faces, and I am positive I was grinning from ear to ear the entire weekend. This weather helped me, at least, slow down and really take my time to talk to the instructors, vendors, and attendees.
What is Rock Therapy? It’s a Moab adventure created by wheelers for wheelers. It’s an outlet for many to get away and clear their minds. It’s an excuse for many to take their rigs out in one of the best known off-road trail systems in the country. It’s a gathering created to bring together crowds from all over North America and experience what Moab has to offer.
From blown 3rd members and near-death rollovers to a 2016 Tacoma and sponsor dinners, there were many highlights that made this year’s Rock Therapy one for the ages.
I recently joined the AZFJ crew for their Monsoon Border Run. It was a 180 mile adventure south of Tucson, AZ. There were 35 FJs, 2 4Runners, 1 Tundra, 1 Toyota pickup, 1 Ford Raptor, 1 Xterra and 2 Wranglers.
We journeyed to the US/Mexico border and would witness the beauty of rolling hills dotted with mesquite trees and lush green valleys. A storm brewed overhead as we made our way from the border which ended in a spectacular sunset at the Montezuma Pass Overlook.
A quick retrospective on the type of amazing Toyota coverage we've completed over the last 8+ years. It's a pleasure to serve our readers and supporters as the top free digital magazine for Toyota Land Cruisers, Trucks, FJ Cruisers, 4Runners, and Lexus SUVs. Here's to many more years of amazing content from TCT Magazine!
Looking for a roof rack for your Toyota Tacoma, but limited on your options due to your Access Cab? Look no further, Zach Scott with Prinsu Design Studio offers his AccessRac option to not only solve your roof rack deficiency, but also includes an option for a recessed light bar, adjustable crossbars all in a lightweight aluminum package.
Prinsu is a small company in comparison to some of the other roof rack manufacturers, but what they lack in flashy packaging, they make up for in care and quality in designing and producing their products. The hardware was nicely labeled and packaged in separate zip-lock bags for the different components of the rack system, and the powdercoated aluminum rails were well wrapped to minimize chances for damage during transportation.
There are many dual battery systems available on the market. Some of the more famous ones kits being National Luna, Dirty Parts and Painless Wiring. You can easily build your own system as well using solenoids and isolators. The IBS DBS system is a relatively new system available in the states for the past several years. It was created by Swiss, Beat Wyss after having suffered two dead batteries while traveling in Australia’s Great Victorian Desert with his 60 Series Land Cruiser. IBS has created and made Intelligent Battery Systems for over 15 years in Switzerland. We chose the IBS DBS system due to its proven solid state design and if the starter battery dies or discharges to 10v or below we can self jump from the auxiliary battery with the optional RBM module. Our kit came from ExtemeOutback.com, the US distributor for IBS Switzerland.
