July 19th-23rd: For the last 11 years, the FJ Summit has brought together Toyota owners from across North America and beyond. Strangers come together to form an enthusiastic community intent on sharing their love of the vehicle and four-wheeling. While four-wheeling is always an important focus of the event, the FJ Summit was far more than just organized trail runs.

September 30th: Our September event is some good old fashioned hard work, simply put. We will be joining the ExpeditionUtah.com group for their annual National Public Lands Day service project event in American Fork Canyon. We will be working with the Forest Service to maintain and improve the Miller Hill 4x4 Trail which has been adopted by ExpeditionUtah. Please visit the ExpeditionUtah forum for more information on the event. There is no group size limit for this event but please RSVP so we know who to expect.

December TBA: Winter Solstice "Freeze Your Tail Off 9" Overnighter - We will be joining members from ExpeditionUtah on a return trip to the Lucin Sun Tunnels to celebrate the Winter Solstice. We'll be leaving from the Golden Spike National Historic Site on TBA at 12:00PM. If you would like to tour the GSNHS before our departure, please check with the GSNHS staff for tour schedules. From there we will traverse the Transcontinental Rail Road (TCRR) to to Lucin, camping at the Tunnels that evening. We will wake up early in the morning to watch the sunrise through the tunnels. This years event lands within several days of the official Winter Solstice so assuming we have clear skies it should make for some neat viewing. For those arriving later in the evening, we'll be easy to spot at our camp site near the Sun Tunnels. Following the Solstice celebrations we will travel back towards SLC via Wendover and Interstate 80 on Sunday morning/afternoon. Trail Difficulty: 3/10 though snow & mud can make some sections downright brutal. Please be sure to have a full-size spare tire as the TCRR is along the old rail road grade and tire punctures are common. Keep checking back as details will continue to be updated. There is no group size limit for this event but please RSVP confirmations only (info@cruiseroutfitters.com) so we know who to expect. Expect cold weather camping and freezing temps overnight and through the morning, please pack accordingly. We ask that everyone bring two bundles of firewood to keep us warm and cozy around the campfire. CB Channel 20 & 2M 146.460mhz. GPS Coordinate of Sun Tunnels: N 41.30 W 113.86.
