The Trail Access Partnership Tour (TAPT) Is Headed Out In November

We are doing something a little different this year after the SEMA Show in Vegas.  We got together with some of our business friends who are going to be at SEMA and then head to the Hump N Bump event in Logandale NV and then off to Desert Splash in Parker AZ.  It made sense that we convoy together and see what happens along the way!!  We plan on special dinners, plenty of campfire talk, music, maybe a theme night with a little bit of 'Land Use' sprinkled in because we're not going to get "TAPT" out of our trails and public lands. 

Please join us if you can make it as it is open to the public as well.  Get more information here:

The Land Use Land Cruiser Is Growing Up!

Thanks to Trail-Gear, my "Elsie", the Land Use Land Cruiser is getting a much needed transformation.  Several businesses have stepped up already and contributed to the build. 

We dropped Elise off in the good hands of the R&D race crew and told them to "have at it" and we're anxious to watch the transformation take place. 

Matt Messer, Trail-Gear President, taking Elsie for a spin before the fun begins.

Old Man Emu tuned suspension kit ready to get installed.  

ARB sent over a 2.5 inch tuned suspension lift, a WARN winch is going to sit on top of Trail-Gear's custom built front bumper with sliders and a back bumper to follow. 

Starting to dig into Elsie to install the lift.

Next on the list will be the bumpers front and rear plus rock sliders.  Can't wait to see the results! 

Stay tuned for more of the transformation process!!  Thanks Trail-Gear and all the others who are contributing to the Land Use Land Cruiser!
