It’s the middle of February, why in the world would we start talking about spring?
For those of us in the central-north part of the country, winter will probably remain for another month or two, but in many parts of the country spring is starting to creep in. Regardless of your locale, now is a good time to start thinking about preparing your Toyota for spring and the summer exploration season to follow.

This year for Overland Expo we sent Miles down with the Tacoma to get Toytec fully into the Overland & Expedition Scene.
With hundreds of vendors and thousands of visitors, the show went really well and we're excited to work on new ways of bringing great Toytec products to this interesting niche of the Toyota off-road industry.
The 2.0 IFP shock is loaded with advanced technology and a long list of features that set it apart. The precision, metal impact extruded aluminum body increases cooling capacity and is rust resistant. The vehicle-specific upper mount includes a composite bushing that isolates noise and vibration. Locking, spring preload rings that allow easy ride height and preload adjustment retain a top quality Eibach racing coil, selected to deliver the optimal spring rate. Performance Series Coil-Over IFP shocks bolt on with no modifications and are designed to level your truck front-to-rear.
We all know how amazing Toyota vehicles are, and of course one of our favorites is the best selling truck in her class: the Toyota Tacoma.
Business Insider recently published a fun map showing the best selling vehicles by state. The legendary for F-Series takes the cake in nearly all states (if you have an F-Series checkout our sister site – F150Lifts.com), but the Tacoma is the best selling of all vehicles in …. Hawaii. It’s interesting to note also that the Tacoma entry price is the lowest among all trucks in this group.
Just looking around on YouTube as we're planning our 2014 video strategy (yes we have one), and we came across several very interesting videos of Toyota trucks (and Land Cruisers) doing some pretty amazing water tricks.
We know that for many of you a snorkel of some sort is fairly high on the list of modifications, do you plan on using your truck for crazy antics such as this?
We first heard about the new Bully Dog tuner for Toyota Trucks in the Septemer issue of Tacoma Magazine. We've got in contact with Bully Dog and now have a unit for sale in our store, with more coming soon.
The Bully Dog GT T+ works on many different trucks including Tacoma, 4Runner, Tundra, and Sequoia, depending on year. The device is under $900 and can net you up to +25hp and +30ft/lb of torque for some configurations. Bully Dog has been a top name in the tuner world for years, so it's very exciting to see a product for Toyota! According to the manufacturer, many vehicles (including the FJ Cruiser) will be supported soon.
