Four days in the dirt

OUR CON­VOY OF CLEAN, SU­PER WHITE TOY­OTA TRD Pro ve­hi­cles left the ma­jes­tic moun­tain oa­sis of Ou­ray, Colorado, bound for an overlanding jour­ney that in­cluded splash­ing through moun­tain streams, climb­ing over mas­sive rocks, and nearly get­ting lost in dust clouds. As we left Ou­ray, it was the last time we would see the TRD Pros that clean, and that’s just the way we like it.

The four-day over­land camp­ing trip was the brain­child of Toy­ota, and the trip was de­signed so we could test out the new trio of TRD Pro ve­hi­cles. Our trip would see us drive across the 160-mile Rim­rocker Trail on our way to Moab, Utah. Spend­ing about 80 per­cent of our trip aired down on dirt paths while cran­ing our necks to take in the stun­ning scenery, we put the Tun­dra, Ta­coma, and 4Run­ner through the paces.
