Who we are
The Georgia Cruisers is a chapter of the Toyota Land Cruiser Association. The TLCA was founded in 1976 as a means to bring together Toyota Land Cruiser enthusiast across the country. While the TLCA is still technically a Land Cruiser association it has evolved to include all Toyota 4WD vehicles.
Atlanta, Ga: Founded in 1992 by a small group of FJ-40 Land Cruisers enthusiasts, the Georgia Cruisers was formed primarily to share a passion for their FJ-40s and go on trail rides. In the years since we have evolved to incorporate and welcome all Toyota 4WD vehicles and fellow offroaders. Today our membership consists of roughly 60 members spread all over the Atlanta area and covering the southeast.
While the common bond we all share is our love for Toyotas, the great outdoors and offroading, the real story is the people and the life long friendships that have developed. In the nearly 20 years since our founding our core members are still active in the planning and participation of events.
Meetings--Held the first Tuesday of every month
Club meetings are held monthly and are open to all visitors. Meetings usually consist of attending to club business, discussing upcoming 4WD events, sharing of technical know-how, looking for spare parts and anything else that may come up. Many member drive their rigs to the meetings just to show off so after the meeting we wonder out to the parking lot to see what's new.
Trail Runs--hosted almost every month
The Georgia Cruisers schedule regular trail runs on average about once a month including 1 overnight trip per quarter.
We try to plan far in advance so attendees can plan in advance. For the most part we stay within a reasonable distance as some rigs simply don't travel well on the road.
Check out the Events page for upcoming Trial Rides.
ALL newcomers are welcome to join us for trail rides including stock vehicles, however, we do encourage at least oversized tires and in some cases locking differentials.
Other Fun Events
Occasionally we even have a “HAM” day (help a member) where a fellow member needs help fixing or assembling a rig. These usually consists of about half a dozen members that tag-team on a rig while the wives and girlfriends laugh at us.
