FJ Summit: Photo Shoot!

FJ Summit: Photo Shoot!

TRD BAJA Photo ShootWe went along as the support/photography crew this year with the folks from FJC Magazine. Talk about an amazing event, there were Toyota’s everywhere!  The scenery in and around Ouray was as spectacular as the vehicles.  From old school FJs, new FJs, Land Cruisers, 4Runners, to several Tacomas, virtually all types of Toyota 4x4’s were represented.  We also got to check out what’s new with some of the aftermarket manufacturers that showed their Toyota love.

One of my favorite stops, I have to admit, was the Toyota TRD display area.  They had engines with superchargers on display, as well as a prototype 2013 FJ Cruiser and a sweet 2013 Tacoma TRD T/X Baja edition.After getting to know the TRD crew for a couple of days, they invited me to go along on their private photo shoot.  Talk about an honor!  It was a perfect Colorado morning, not a cloud in the sky.  I have to admit that this truck is not the easiest to photograph.  We shot it from as many angles as humanly possible and being a black truck with dark grey decals, it was hard to do it justice.

Even more awesome was that they traded me trucks for the drive back down the mountain.  How sweet was that!  Of course I really want to get this truck in the desert and see what it can really do.  But as expected, it is a really sweet Tacoma.

I did prod them a little with the idea of a Trail Team Edition Tacoma to go with the TT FJ, so if you see that at your dealer thank you notes can be sent to the publisher.

All in all, it was a fantastic time to be with fellow Toyota enthusiasts.  Hopefully we will be there again next year.  Maybe we will see some of you there as well!
