I thought it may be useful to add links to notable trips that are available for anyone to use (for free) in the Hema Explorer Cloud (http://hema.li/cloud)
If you create a free Hema Cloud account and download the app (http://hema.li/explorer), you can add any of these trips to your account with 1...
As some of you know I've been helping Hema Maps for the last couple of years with their North American Explorer App (http://hema.li/explorer)
Last year we planned & executed an epic 6,500 mile expedition from the Mexican border to Prudhoe Bay, AK along the Continental Divide. While we had...
We're selling our Manley ORV EXPLORE Trailer with one of the first CVT-12 Family Tents!
This trailer is bombproof yet relatively lightweight considering the capability.
Here's how she arrived from the factory:
2" Ball Coupler
Removable Hard Aluminum Lid
Kilby Max Coupler
Spare Wheel &...
I'm doing a little un-official research on what it would take to create the 'ultimate' mapping app for exploring unpaved parts of our country.
So...if you could wave a magic wand and build the perfect app for exploring, what features would it have?
As it turns out....the 2006 Tundra didn't work for what we need, so here we go..
Our new..new...family hauler and exploration rig. A 2015 Tundra Limited Crewmax in gorgeous Radiant Red.
This truck will soon be the new flagship for Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine, and we're hoping to feature...
Jim went to Vegas last weekend to check out all three TRD Pro trucks: Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner.
His first article is now on the site, so check it out:
Short version: These things are great, even though they're not as tricked...
Interested in seeing the TRD Pro trucks up close?
Jim is in Vegas this week test driving the TRD Pro series Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner with Toyota & TRD. They've graciously offered to help us host a meetup tomorrow morning at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Join us from 10am-12pm TOMORROW, May 3...
So, Red Line Land Cruisers just announced a turn-key $49k 4 Door FJ-40 vehicle.
Basically, they take an Aqualu Body, a donor 80-series, and build a sweet 4 door 40, for less than the $100k+ FJ-44 from Icon. To me, getting it under $50 for a 'brand new' 40 is key.
If you want do build it...
So, we've managed to get an update done on our Land Cruiser History article. So far we have some great resources that delve into the history quite well, you've probably seen some of these before.
We're hoping to continue to add to this article over time, and especially want to hear personal...
Welcome to the modern age TRD :) (kind of, it's not mobile friendly). I am glad TRD finally updated their site to include real content that is pretty interesting.
They have TRD history with some great Ivan Stewart articles, videos with Toyota Engineers, plenty of racing & performance stuff...
As some of you know, we announced Toyota Cruisers & Trucks (TCT) Magazine in September. Our main sections for the new magazine include:
Well, I just picked up a new domain so...
Monte's EPIC 3 state adventure, part 2, is now live on the TCT Magazine site. All 34 pics from this article are included as well:
This is a great tale of adventure with fun, friends, and of course Toyota Trucks
Part of the final...
As you may have seen, we're merging into TCT Magazine beginning in January.
Well, we just published the final full FJC Magazine issue for October, you can get it here:
Plenty of good coverage in there, mostly events this...
We had the opportunity to play with the 2014 4Runner (including the soft Limited version) at the FJ Summit. We pulled a few pics from our selection to share ;)
Does everyone still hate it??
Check out our Live Cam on Sunday starting at 10am for our livestream of the A/T Overland DIY Portable Heater build. From unboxing to (hopefully) working, the kit will take a few hours to build so check in if you're not out playing ;)
The full build will be streamed live at...
It's true, according to our source, that the FJC will not be produced after the 2014 MY. Our source confirms that internal Toyota systems show 2014 as the last year to order FJs from the factory.
While Toyota hasn't confirmed anything beyond 'there will be a 2014 FJ Cruiser', we think this...
I'm putting the call out for a student/semi-pro video editor. I've done basic editing & can hack stuff together, but it takes WAY too long and I have projects piling up. I'm looking at doing a variety of off-road/overland related videos. Basically I'll provide raw footage and...
So our Manley ORV EXPLORE model arrived last week and is patiently awaiting a few mods. Here she is on day #1:
We have a few things to do before our maiden voyage to Sedona in April, and of course we'll be at the FJC/Tacoma camping area with her at Overland Expo. And you may see her cruising...
Wanted to point out that the new FunTreks Arizona 4x4 Book (2nd edition) is now shipping. Matt did a great write up on it here:
