Featured Rig

Featured Rig

We’ve been talking with Corey Tando for quite a few months now, and finally got some great info and pics to include his Ti as October’s Featured Rig. Corey is the admin over at www.yotatech.com, which he started in May of 2002. He’s a tech guy all the way, and has the mods to prove it.
Corey’s FJ is built as a true expedition ready rig. He’s setup to go anywhere and stay clean and comfortable all along the way. There’s not much left for Corey to do, but we’re sure he’ll think of something.

Corey gave us his full list of mods, in order of importance:

You can checkout detailed writeups of all these mods at Corey’s site as well.
