For those of you not familiar with this event, allow me to give you some background info.  2014 was the 11th annual Round Up held by Lone Star Land Cruisers, which is an event open for all.  Our rules are simple: be safe and have fun.  Katemcy Rocks near Mason, Texas offers the perfect venue and a very unique opportunity for fun in the heart of Texas.  The park consists of granite outcrops offering all types of wheeling from the crazy “I got this…” picture opportunities to rock obstacles and trails that offer chal

lenge, but little chance of damage.  You can hop on a trail and run the obstacles or simply take off across the ranch in search of a playground fitting your rig and level of driving expertise.  The event has developed a following that routinely draws rigs from coast to coast.  This year included a half a dozen rigs from California and Nevada.  There were also rigs from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee and of course Texas.

2014 Trail Team Special Edition FJ Cruiser | Toyota Magazine

It’s the end of the trail for the FJ Cruiser and Toyota leaves us with the special edition FJ Cruiser Trail Team Ultimate Edition (FJ UE). The FJ UE marks nine years of Toyotas modern style SUV which paid homage to the original and renowned FJ40. In those nine years the FJ has become an off road legend and shows its prowess as one of the most capable vehicles. It’s no slouch in stock form, but a few add on items get you a serious trail rig. The FJ has seen several special editions over the years, including the very popular Trail Teams Editions and the original TRD Special Edition, as well as a few lesser known vehicles such as the ARB Edition FJ Crawler and XPLORE Edition. All of these vehicles had the 4.0-liter V6 and 4x4 underpinnings, but were equipped with various accessories which boosted performance and/or off road capabilities.

Dennis got this great shot of the prototype FJC Trail Teams Ultimate Edition during his photo shoot.

Although we installed a dual-battery system in 2012, we’re still working on lighting upgrades as part of the Extreme Makeover: FJC project we started last year. For our latest project we decided to replace our headlights, side lights, and tail lights with upgraded versions.
ANZO USA now makes LED lights for the rear and side markers, as well as a projector headlight with halo in a fully OEM-compatible package. The housing for all three components is nearly identical to the OEM hardware, so we’re sure the quality will be amazing. What’s great about the LEDs is that we’ll never have to worry about changing bulbs again.

Kokopelli Trail Trip Report | April 2014 TCT Magazine

I never really considered myself to be an impulse decision maker. I’m as spontaneous as the next guy I suppose, but I’m also a responsible husband and father. Every decision I make affects my family. So when registration opened up for Cruise Moab 2013, I did what any responsible father and husband would do. I signed up without consulting my wife at all. Surely she would understand, right? In my responsible, think of others first mentality, I also signed on for the 3-Day Kokopelli Trail expedition prior to the start of Cruise Moab. Once I reached the “pay now” portion of registration, I paused.  I called my wife and explained how epic this trip was going to be. Would she mind staying home with the kids while I traveled the back country of Colorado and Utah?  “I’ll only be gone for 5 or 6 days” I said sheepishly. “What about us?”, she asked. I promised her that next year we’d do Moab as a family. Complete with comfortable accommodations, indoor plumbing and hot showers. This year however, I need to get away on my own. It's important for a man to venture out into the wild on occasion and  it’s refreshing to know such places still exist in this country. But was I prepared? Was my vehicle ready? This isn’t a trip to the store. It’s 150+ miles of backcountry expedition travel. It was time to take a hard look at what I needed.

Jonathan & Bob are working Cruise Moab this week, and have started sending in some great shots of the event. Plenty more to come soon!
