    Lone Star Jamboree 2014

    Deep in the Pineywoods region of East Texas, the Dallas-based club known as the Toyota Trail Riders holds the annual Lone Star Toyota Jamboree at a large off-road park.  The Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area contains nearly 2,000 acres atop one of the tallest hills in the area. Scenic wooded trails are scattered across all sides of the hilltop, dipping into the connecting valleys. Trail difficulty levels range from easy, which are suitable for stock trucks, to the boulder-strewn playgrounds for crawlers.

  • Can a first gen Tacoma winch a big rig? It can if it's in Dallas!
    Written by

    Yesterday Toyota of Dallas (Home of TRDParts4U) posted a video of a 2001 Tacoma winching an 18 wheeler out of the mud in a construction zone. From our 4Runner editor Phillip:

    "This is one of my off-road buddies, John Teckley, who is a service technician at Toyota of Dallas. The dealership is next to the major Loop 635 construction (busiest highway in Dallas). A construction truck got stuck in the mud. Teckley pulled it out with his 2001 Tacoma this morning."

    A cool video for sure!

    Here's a pic of John next to his beloved Taco Phillip recently shot.

  • Trip Report: Mojave Rd

    Trip Report: Mojave Rd 
    It all started at the local coffee house. Fridays after work a group of Vegas FJ Cruiser owners and offroad enthusiasts got together to talk mods and trails. Being February, it was just nice enough to sit outside as the coffee warmed our hands. But, as winter sometimes does in Las Vegas, the breeze picked up and brought a chill to the air.  We moved our conversation back inside, and the topic changed to where we should explore when the temperatures rose. Almost immediately it was mentioned that the Mojave Road should be at the top of that list. Before we departed we settled on the dates of April 5 and 6, 2014 and started planning; in addition to the normal camping/offroading supplies there are a couple things you will want to bring: some pennies, a ceramic frog and a garden gnome.  You know… for safe travels.

  • 2016 Tacoma 'Mule' Spied in the desert
    Written by

    2016 Toyota Tacoma Test Mule Towing has posted a gallery of photos showing a 2016 Tacoma test 'mule' performing towing tests. This vehicle is most likely testing an updated powertrain, so from a design standpoint it looks like a current model Toyota Tacoma. This truck sports a 6speed Manual transmission, but AutoBlog reports a 6-speed Auto will be available when the truck ships in late 2016. While we're all still wondering what the new Taco will look like, it's great to see testing of an updated drivetrain.

    2016 Toyota Tacoma redesign

    More info will be coming soon, so stay tuned to Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine!

    4Runners in Moab

    Equipped with their 3rd generation 4Runners, Chris Wenan, Tyler Carvell, and Nate Hufnagel ventured onto popular off-road trails in Moab alongside friends with other types of trucks.

    Spring Break was in March, but it was January when the foundation for our wheeling trip to Moab, UT was planned. Moab is the mecca for off-road enthusiasts, and we were ready for it. Eight weeks later, our mud tires hummed over Highway 128 along the Colorado River, with views of the quintessential red rock canyon walls on either side.
