OEM Audio Plus Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Audio System Upgrade
It’s no secret that auto manufacturers are working to put aftermarket audio companies out of business, whether intentional or not. With systems like Ram’s 12-inch Uconnect and 19-speaker, 900-watt, Harmon Kardon offering, there’s little more that could be desired. And nearly every manufacturer offers a large touchscreen infotainment system that just a few years ago

First Drive: 2019 Saleen Sporttruck

If you’ve been paying any attention to the automotive news cycle lately, there shouldn’t be a shred of doubt that pickups are hot. And from the look of things, 2019 is geared up to be the warmest on record for the heaviest hitters in the lineup. Ram struck first, introducing the company’s all-new 2019 2500

Volant Performance Intake Kit Install
One of the first modifications many pickup owners opt for is adding a cold-air intake kit. They are easy to install, relatively inexpensive, and oftentimes provide immediate feedback with a louder growl and slight bump in power. Unfortunately, over the years, many companies have come along to try and cash in on this by offering

Hellwig Ford F-150 Raptor Rear Sway Bar Install
There are a lot of things in life that need addressing that we as humans simply brush off because it’s either inconvenient or we don’t think we need to do it. Take going to the dentist for example. We all hate doing it, yet if we do we live a much happier and healthier life.

The Driver’s Seat: I Won A Truck!
If there’s a pulse in your veins, you’ve undoubtedly found yourself deeply lost in a daydream involving wining a car. It might happen on a game show, in a casino, or through a sweepstakes.

Daily Driven: 2018 Toyota Tundra Limited
If ever there were a vehicle in need of an overhaul Toyota’s Tundra would be it. With its last major redesign in ’07 and two minor facelifts in ’14 and ’18, Tundra is currently the oldest of the ½-ton pickups with no indication of that changing soon. Despite this, the truck has aged remarkably well.

First Drive: 2020 Range Rover Evoque
If we sat down and walked through the current portfolio of Range Rover products we’d find pavement-scorching supercharged V-8 engines, go-anywhere multi-gear transfer cases paired with locking differentials, and interiors so posh the queen herself might blush. Yet despite all of this, it’s the runt of the litter with an economical 2.0L four-cylinder engine, diminutive

The Driver’s Seat: Shooting Magazine Covers
I’ve said it a few times in the past but it’s worth restating, writing this editorial is the most difficult thing that I do each month. Drive reviews are no big deal and tech stories are fairly easy, however, when it comes time to pull together an editorial I tend to suffer from major writer’s
