The Garage Shop in Catawba, NC announced today, Expedition SEMA; The Garage Shop tackles the Trans-America Trail in a 1970 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. The 30 day trip will cover 4,000 miles of dirt roads in 11 states through the heart of America.
“We have a passion for overland expedition driving,” said Aaron Brown, Owner of The Garage Shop, “We have driven Moab, Engineer Pass, Jarbidge Mountains, and more.”
In 2015, The Garage Shop built the World’s Fastest Rat Rod which is street legal and broke 7 East Coast Timing Association records at the Ohio Mile. While in Las Vegas for SEMA, Brown devised the idea to create a vehicle that would test products to the fullest, in some of the harshest conditions in America from the high peaks to desserts, to farm land and everything in-between. The team will sleep in tents each night and eat only the food they bring with them and can fit into the FJ40. It’s the ultimate man and machine expedition across America.
ATLANTA, GA (July, 2016) – CORBOX released three innovative truck storage solutions, the TROVE, TITAN, and TRAVERSE, for the 80% of truck owners desiring lockable storage. With 50 million trucks on the road and 10 million with bed covers, CORBOX has stepped up with the ultimate solution – a lockable yet removable truck box that works in all full-size trucks and with all truck bed covers. Custom fit. Now Standard.
Four key features set CORBOX apart from the rest. Every CORBOX mounts below the rails of the truck, allowing any bed cover to be installed. Every CORBOX has drawers, so gone are the days of the truck box that acts as a “black hole” storage bin. Every CORBOX is secure as every drawer and bin lock, the CORBOX locks to the truck, the tailgate locks, and the bed cover completely hides the box. Lastly, every CORBOX is removable. If you need to use the full bed of your truck, simply pop the front latch and remove the box.
