We had a long day of driving as we made our way to Ouray, CO. We had spent 3 days at the Grand Canyon South Rim and one night near Monument Valley. Our mini-convoy of three FJs from S. California rounded that final corner off the 550 highway into Ouray and I was excited. We had finally arrived at another FJ Summit, my 4th. We parked the FJs and walked into the vendor area, caught many familiar faces and exchanged greetings. Attendees were lining up for dinner at FJ Summit headquarters, Twin Peaks Lodge while others were browsing vendor booths. You could sense everyone was ready to hit some trails and make memories with new and old friends.
As I pen this, we’ve just returned from our 2015 Fall Colors tour, a family tradition since we’re so blessed to live such a gorgeous state. The TCT Explorer Tundra just flipped 15,000 miles. It’s been quite a journey for our family and our this amazing truck since the first 2,000 miles (Apirl 2015).
Our mod list for this rig is nearly complete. The only two items left are the backordered Budbuilt Full skid plates, and the Transfer Flow 46 gallon replacement fuel tank, which his sitting in my garage. Like I said, we’ve been busy.
Toyota Trucks, new gear, award winning accessories...the #tctcrew finished Friday up with some great finds. Here are a few favorites:
Friday is upon us #LIVEatSEMA so we thought we should share a few of the more interesting builds we've found. Although there are plenty of amazing Toyota Trucks at the show, these are noteworthy in their own way....
A quick video of some of the booths we visited Thursday including: Toytec Lifts, COMEUP Winch, Warrior Products, and the new trailer from Smittybilt.
Toyota Tundra & Tacoma builds are a dime-a-dozen at SEMA, so we've been seeking builds that stand out from the crowd. While most of these lifted rigs will probably never leave pavement, the concepts are still fun to examine.
Our team found plenty of great Toyota Trucks & SUV's today! Word is that Magnuson will have late-model Toyota Superchargers for FJ Cruisers, Tundras, and Tacomas very soon. We'll let you know when we find out more!
The first day of SEMA revealed a Tonka 2016 4Runner on 38” tires, new lights bars and aftermarket truck grills from Baja Design, and to my total surprise Smittybuilt is coming out with a expedition trailer.
