Every year, roughly 60,000 people come from all over the world to attend the Specialty Equipment Market Association, or SEMA for short, in Las Vegas. The SEMA Show is the most massive automotive specialty products trade show in the world known for their showcase of exclusive and exciting automobile builds.
Aside from all the excitement of SEMA we were thrilled to be invited out for the Trail Trek Tour: Vegas Adventures alongside Toyota and BFGoodrich Tires. We took part in an off-road excursion through the rough Nevada Mountains in Toyota’s new 2019 “Voodoo Blue” TRD Pro line up. The line up consisted of the Toyota Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner, all of which were equipped with some new features to take on the rocky roads of Wheeler Pass. Although it was our first-time off-road driving, BF Goodrich Tires helped us understand the basic techniques to get us up and around precarious situations. Here is what we learned:

Las Vegas might be best known as a place where adults can indulge in virtually every form of escapism, but just outside the city borders lies a different kind of adventure. There, one will find the Spring Mountains Recreational Area, which delivers beautiful views, the occasional burro, snake, or wild horse, and a downright epic off-roading trail by the name of Wheeler Pass. It was there that we recently partook in the Trail Trek Tour, hosted by Philip Van Der Vossen of men’s lifestyle site Gunaxin, in partnership with Toyota USA and MGM Resorts International. With the new 2019 Toyota TRD Pro Series (consisting of the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner) at our disposal, we plowed through the rocky hills, kicking up dust in formidable style. Needless to say, it was an experience to truly remember.

After putting some mud on the Toyota TRD Pros, we headed to the dusty Nevada desert to put the 2019 Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner TRD Pros to the test as part of our collab with the Trail Trek Tour. The rocky trails were no match for the FOX shocks each vehicle now sports.
This year’s TRD Pro series comes in a sweet new color called “Voodoo Blue,” which is bold, vibrant, and looks awesome against the browns and greens found on most off-road trails. It looks especially great with the bold black trim found on all TRD Pro models. The 2019 TRD Pro line can also be had in Super White and Midnight Black Metallic.

The TRD Pro Series is Toyota’s line of their most off-road capable trucks, with proven engineering and toughness to help you explore places that aren’t found on most maps.
First unveiled in 2014, the TRD Pro lineup was born from Toyota’s rich racing and off-road heritage. All TRD Pro vehicles offer unique styling, as well as highly capable, tried and tested performance off-road equipment, specifically tailored for when the pavement runs out.
While there is plenty of sexy TRD Pro badging both inside and outside the vehicles, this is far from just an appearance package. To help prove that point, we love taking the entire lineup off the pavement to see just how far they’ll take us into the wilderness, but always make sure we have enough gas to get back out. Because where we’re going, AAA isn’t likely to find us.

You know that saying “between a rock and hard place?” Of course you do. Everyone says it. Everyone’s lived it. We’ve all had those moments when we’re backed up against a wall and our next move, physically, metaphorically, or both is a crucial and delicate one. It’s a reactive moment when all our senses are at their peak, our entire nervous system relying on a combination of muscle memory and calculated decision-making.
In a matter of mere seconds, the brain’s frontal lobe shifts into high gear, redlining the RPMs of our neurons and synapses, preparing us for what’s next. In life, I’ve had many metaphoric moments of being between a rock and a hard place. But, this past Halloween, in the mountains northwest of Las Vegas, I found out what it means to be physically between a rock and a hard place.
On a cool autumn day in the high desert, myself and a group of lifestyle bloggers headed 40 miles outside Las Vegas into the Spring Mountain National Recreation area. After the previous day’s sensory overload at the annual SEMA convention, the day’s agenda was simple, on paper: Climb up a trail up the Wheeler Pass to 7,700 feet in an armada of brand new, Voodoo Blue 2019 Toyota TRD Pro trucks.
