    Heated Mirror Mod

    Written by

    heated mirror mod toyota tacomaWith cold weather just around the corner, some Tacoma owners are reminded of one option that is not available for our trucks, regardless of the trim level - Heated Mirrors. While it's a small luxury to have, it is convenient and relatively inexpensive to add Heated Mirrors yourself.

    There are a few different methods to add heated mirrors to your Tacoma: Motorcycle Grip Warmers, Muth Co. Mirrors, ProEFX Towing Mirrors, OEM 4Runner Mirror Swap. These methods range in cost from $50-$500+, with $300 being the median average. In this write-up, we'll be installing heated mirrors using OEM Toyota Highlander Mirrors and a matching OEM switch, with the total cost being about $200.

    The Epic: Leg 1 The start of something amazing

    The EPIC Leg 1

    Our trip starts Monday August, 5 2013 at 6:30 am in Powell, WY. With me is my brother Grant, good friend Jessica, and fellow Tacoma owner and enthusiast Mark from central Idaho. Our trucks are packed to the brim for the journey and we are all very anxious to get on the road. But like most plans, we where late.  However it wasn't before too long when we hit the road to Clark, WY to get to our first trail. Morrison Jeep Trail.

    Mark and I met our third brave member to drive the switchbacks at Edelweiss in Clark, Wy.(Magazine-1.jpg) Joey from Northern Colorado had driven all day Sunday to get here. We were 30 minutes late so of course spent plenty more time talking and greeting each other before setting off to the trail.

    Our take on the MORV Explore

    Written by

    Manley Explore Trailer with Toyota TacomaThe Tacoma & FJC Mag team have put over 4,000 miles on the MORV Trailer (with CVT RTT) this summer with multiple Arizona, Utah, and Colorado trips. We can honestly say this trailer has taken everything we’ve thrown at it and performed flawlessly in sand, mud, dirt, and rocks. We’ve both had plenty of trips to test this gem out, so here are our thoughts.
