How important is the Tellico battle? 

Most folks would agree that Tellico has become the "front line" in the battle over our access to both public and private land in this country.  We feel it's our responsibility to fight for our rights and do what is difficult rather than stand idly by expecting others to fight our battle for us. 

With those thoughts in mind the Georgia Cruisers were to either "Put-up" or "Shut-up" so this is our response.

About the Land cruiser  (Honoring a Father)

For nearly 20 years this Land Cruisers served 2 generations in a single family safely transporting kids to baseball games and hauling groceries.  When the father and original owner of the truck died a few years back the truck was inherited by his son where it continued to serve as a daily commuter all the while his father's memory rode in the passenger's seat.  Finally, in early 2008 the son reluctantly retired his father's 62 and replaced it with a new 2008 4Runner.  Since that time the son had always wanted to fix up the truck but simply did not have the tools or knowledge to make it happen.

In April of this year the Georgia Cruisers were contacted by the son and donor of the truck.  Apparently he had debated selling the truck outright but could not bare the thought of his dad's truck just banging around surface streets for the rest of it's life.  He then debated donating the truck to a more common charity but opted not to as it would disappear into a black hole never to be seen again. So out of desperation he contacted his local "Toyota Club" seeking someone who could care for the the truck and use it for a good cause.   Jeff: I hope we are serving your wishes and your father's spirit well!!!!!  Thanks,

Plans for the Land cruiser

The plan is to keep the truck fairly stock with the exception of a few upgrades.  Included on our list of improvements will be new springs all around, new off road bumpers front & rear, new winch, BFG 33x12.5x15MT tires, refurbished interior, new transmission, new hoses and belts, and of course repairs as needed.  Then off to the ANH Collisions Specialists for body work to include cleaning up 20 years of shopping cart and car door dents.  Then for good measure we're throwing in a recovery kit complete with recovery strap and tree saver compliments of Offroad Outfitters and many other goodies.  Stay tuned as more details will be coming in the near future.
