With rumors flying around the automotive world for well over a year regarding the redesign of the Toyota Tacoma, the wait is finally coming to an end!
I first saw a tailgate cutting board attachment at Cruise Moab a few years back. The utility, cleanliness and simplicity appealed to me both for food use and just as a sensible replacement for the stained and tattered carpet cover that was on my cutting board. A friend of mine gave me a rough cut board that he had acquired from a kitchen supply store. Not having a router or other tools required to give it a polished look, it stayed in my garage, not on my truck. Enter the LabRak Cutting Board. Located in Bend Oregon, Owner Shane Walters has a mind that is always moving at 1000 kilometers an hour. His designs are known for their complex and painstakingly detail oriented craftsmanship. His new cutting board is exacting in it’s build quality and and painstakingly simple. It was simple enough that we decided to install ours on a camping trip in the middle of the rocky Mountains in Colorado.
Driving down the street in Denver on a typical beautiful afternoon, I looked at the Tacoma next to me and realized that something wasn’t normal. Of course seeing a Taco without badging is nothing out of the ordinary, but at the next red light, I noticed the rims and the ride height. Then I saw it, a TRD PRO badge on the tail gate. NO WAY! They are not supposed to be on the street yet . . . Well, it was a PRO and here it was with applied for tags. So, what to do now?
Pelfreybilt has been in business since 2012, offering Toyota Tacoma owners a well machined product line with great customer service. The owners are a husband and wife team, with Satin heading up the ordering and customer service, and Tyler designing and fabricating the products. They offer a variety of armor products including bumpers (front and rear), sliders, and front to rear skid plates for 2005+ Tacomas.
Every once and a while a new product comes to market that you never thought you would need and once you use it a few times, you never want to leave home without it. Therein lies the new Dutch Oven Camp Table. Taking your cooking from the fire pit to the grand vista is a rewarding culinary experience. Cooking in a Dutch Oven is an exercise in patience and finesse but the rewards are vast, as they have been known to end wars and begin friendships. At the very least, they can provide the user with a great feast whether it be a mid-morning snack of deliciously warm cinnamon rolls or evening meal of pot roast.
Marc Fossi purchased a 2011 Trail Edition 4Runner primarily for improved trail accessibility for fishing. It wasn’t long before Marc saw the potential for what his new truck could do. We asked Marc about the evolution of his build, where his truck has taken him, and what the future holds.
Like many serious off-roaders, when they purchased their 4Runner, they didn't have plans to take their new truck down the off-road modification path. Something along the way occurs that ignites the pursuit of a more aggressive rig. What's your story?
The beauty of this dish is the simplicity of the Roasted Pasilla Cream Sauce; which can be prepared ahead of time and pureed in a blender, for a smoother consistency, or prepared in the field for a more rustic consistency. Pasilla chilies, also known as poblano chilies, can be found in most grocery stores and are identifiable by their shiny, dark green color and heat-shaped profile. Pasillas produce a mild heat when cooked and are as versatile in their use as this cream sauce is.
• 1 tablespoons (1/8 stick) unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup chopped onion
• 1 pasilla chile, charred, peeled, diced
• 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
• 1/3 tsp salt
• Dash of pepper
• 8 – 6 inch corn tortillas
• 1lb pulled pork
• 6 eggs – scrambled
• 1/2 cup Pico de Gallo
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the diced pasilla chile and cook for 1 minute to blend flavors. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until reduced and the cream coats back of spoon, about 6 minutes. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and let cool. Makes 3/4 cup of sauce.
Assemble the tacos by placing 2 oz of pulled pork onto a heated tortilla and top with scrambled eggs, 1 Tbsp Pasilla Cream Sauce, and 1 Tbsp Pico de Gallo.

Driving to Tooele (Too-ILL-uh) for the first time, I had no idea what to expect. Located in the next valley west of Salt Lake, Miller Motorsports Park rises out of the myriad of farmlands and cookie cutter sprawl. Enter the main gate to this 85 million dollar megalith of concrete, asphalt and steel and you are as likely to see individuals as you are entire families engaging in every form of motorsports imaginable. You will find go karts, supercars and bikes galore circumnavigating the four main paved tracks. At this point you are wondering how your dusty, creaky and less than speedy Land Cruiser will fit in and more importantly….where you will pitch your tent. You navigate to the back corner of the course and suddenly it all makes sense.
