     When we purchased the Manley EXPLORE trailer last year, we intentionally kept it fairly stock. We wanted to get a feel for how the trailer would be used before doing any upgrades, since each use case is so different. Over the last few months we’ve pondered upgrade options (see the January 2014 issue), to decide how best to spend our time & money, hoping to modify the platform for our best long-term goals.

  • Toyota Announces 2015 TRD Pro Tundra Pricing
    Written by

    2015 TRD Pro Tundra Pricing

    Today Toyota announced pricing for the 2015 TRD Pro Tundra trucks.

    The trucks will begin arriving at dealerships late next month, and include several noteworthy upgrades:

    • TRD Bilstein front & rear remote reservoir shocks ($900)
    • TRD-tuned front springs providing 2" of lift ($300)
    • De-tuned rear springs for better ride on rough terrain ($300)
    • “TOYOTA” front grille ($200)
    • TRD badging & special design changes ($800)
    • All-black 18-inch TRD alloy wheels with Michelin Off-Road tires designed exclusively for Tundra ($1500)
    • TRD front skid plate ($180)
    • We estimate a cost of about $4180 to replicate the modifications included on this truck from the factory.

    2015 TRD Pro Tundra Truck Prices

    Depending on which model you order, the pricing for the TRD Pro version of the 2015 Tundra ranges from $41,285 (Double Cab with a 5.7-liter V8 & 6 speed auto) to $43,900 (CrewMax V8 & 6 speed auto).

    On the Double Cab model, this is about $6295 more than a similarly equipped SR5 wth the TRD Off Road Package, and Toyota doesn't specificy which base model the TRD Pro is most similar to. For the DC the TRD Pro option seems a little steep.

    For the Crew Max, however, the TRD Pro model comes in about $2975 more than a similar SR5 with the TRD Off Road Package, so it's a much better value.

    2015 TRD Pro Tundra Toyota Truck

    Like the 4Runner & Tacoma TRD Pro models, the Tundra TRD Pro will fit those looking for a ready-to-go truck with light modifications and a factory warranty. If you're planning to heavily modify your truck, in many cases it's still better to go with a base model and choose individual modifications. Still, at just under $44k for a Crew Max TRD Pro, it may be a great platform for a large exploration rig.

    Yesterday we snuck in to Red Line Land Cruisers to catch a glimpse of the in-production FJ-UTE 4 Door FJ-40 Land Cruiser.

    Four door FJ-40 Land Cruiser from Redline Land Cruisers in Colorado Springs

    What did we find? A full aluminum body sitting atop a freshly cleaned 80 Series Land Cruiser frame. Justin & the guys at Red Line are already test fitting seats and lights to finalize model 0001 of the FJU, which will be on display in the Radlfo booth at SEMA 2014.

    A couple of weeks ago the Expedition Portal YouTube channel debuted a new series: Trail Scout by Overland Journal

    This video features the Utah Canyonlands and is narrated by the one & only Scott Brady.

    It's content like this that makes us all want to drop everything and head for the back country. We can't wait to see more, hopefully with more Toyota Cruisers & Trucks next time =)

    Camp Stoves Part 3 Choosing a camp stove the future is bright

    In the first two articles in my ‘Choosing a Camp Stove’ series I discussed the importance of knowing how the types of meals you will be preparing affects the selection of a camping stove.  We learned how stoves are designed for specific styles of outdoor cooking and how flame control and burner size affects the types of meals you can prepare in the field.  We also discussed the most common types of fuels used in modern camping stoves and how they should be factored in when purchasing the stove that is right for you.  Each fuel type comes with advantages and disadvantages that must be weighed when deciding on the stove that is right for you.  In this, our third and final article, I will be taking a step back from all of the technical jargon and will instead be talking about why I am excited about the advancements I am seeing in the camping stove market.

    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.
