Wireless winch remote controllers deliver an extra dose of flexibility and convenience over the typical hard-wired controller, and the option just became even more convenient thanks to a new state-of-the-art system that allows users to operate their winch through a new app.
You may already be familiar with Atturo’s singularly stylish, well-performing off-road tires, but the respected tire manufacturer also has plenty to offer those who keep all four wheels on the pavement, in the form of the comfortable, practical Atturo AZ610 – a tire for the other six days of the week.
The last time we checked in with MTC or Motorsports Technical Center, Marty Schwerter, the team manager walked us through the concept of developing another one-off Supra. Conceived as a companion to the Supra Heritage showcased at SEMA 2019, this new Toyota Sport Top will be a targa top version of the GR Supra. The Toyota Supra Sport Top, as it is called, is being created as part of SEMA360, an online avatar of the SEMA Show usually held in Vegas every year. And today, they released an update on their progress transforming a Supra into a customized Sport Top version.
The venerable Toyota 4Runner is a perennial favorite among those who like to venture off the beaten path. Even in its current form, on sale for over a decade without any major changes, the rig continues to command big money both in the new and second-hand markets, while previous-generation models are also outrageously popular. Given their reputation, it only makes sense that there is a veritable truckload of accessories available in the aftermarket.
Vans come in many sizes, but share a lot of features and benefits. Perhaps the greatest benefit, though, is versatility. A van can be configured to carry a lot of passengers, or a ton of cargo. It can be outfitted for duty as a camper or as a work space. It offers the utility of a pickup with the security of an SUV. So, van owners, shouldn’t you protect and care for your van by getting and using the best van covers?
Americans love trucks. But sometimes, we don’t care for our beloved pickups as well as we should. We leave them to fend for themselves out in the cold, or park them deep in the garage without any protection. Whether you park indoors or out, in good weather or bad, your pickup needs and deserves only the best when it comes to truck covers. A good cover will protect your vehicle from sun, UV rays, and heat buildup. It will be waterproof and breathable, tough, yet soft to the touch. It will provide security and peace of mind whenever you are away from your truck, because you’ll know that your pickup’s safe from harm.
There’s more than one example on this Earth of entrepreneurial people needing a product, discovering a suitable item doesn’t exist, and inventing something of their own to fill that gap. The same can be said for businesses as well—particularly your author’s local performance shop that was founded 25 years ago by a gearhead unhappy with the selection of speed parts in town.
As recently as few years ago, sedans dominated the roads, while sport utility vehicles or SUVs were the vehicles people drove because they had to, not because they wanted to. Owners took about as much pride in their SUVs as thoroughbred horse owners took in their mules. But then something happened: SUVs got better. Sedan owners started to realize that an SUV could offer greater capability, comfort, and safety. Minivan owners looked across the lot, and saw that SUVs could do almost everything a minivan could do, and look better while doing it.
Few machines are better suited for this task than the Toyota Tacoma. As part of the company’s SEMA360 virtual showcase, this overland-ready pickup was built by the crew at 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine and billed as the ultimate outdoor lifestyle rig featuring a slew of off-road performance upgrades.
A signature characteristic of 4th-gen Toyota Supra was the availability of a targa roof. Popping the top on a Supra from that era let in a flood of atmosphere – both literally and figuratively. Other generations of the car could also have been opted as a targa but, for many JDM gearheads, the A80 represents peak Supra.
