Friends of Ky Truck Tuning

Since my active duty days in the US Army, I have felt it is important to support others in the same community that I live, work and play in.  Below you will find some of Central Kentucky’s finest business’ and organizations that are active in the same circles as Kentucky Truck Tuning.  Please join me in supporting them.

Commonwealth 4×4:
859 697-2082

The off-road and overlanding industry is an exciting but sometimes confusing place for consumers and retailers alike. With more choices coming to market every day, the ability to know what features make sense for your vehicle (and their purpose in your adventures) takes more and more time to research and understand. Our goal at Commonwealth 4×4 is to be an honest and educated partner in the build process of your vehicle(s).

Our staff consists of experienced and avid off-roaders who bring years of experience on a variety of vehicle platforms. We believe in relationships built on trust and understand our involvement in your purchase decisions are a privilege. The recommendations and work that we do at Commonwealth 4×4 exist to give you confidence on the trails and the ability to adventure further.

From suspension upgrades to roof top tents, we’ve used and installed them all. Let our team give you accurate answers to all of your questions whether it be by email, phone, text or with an in-person consultation in our shop. If you have an existing relationship with another outfitter we encourage you to continue using their services, but if you’re looking for a team to make your vision a reality then we’d love the chance to earn your business. Let’s build adventure, together.


The TLCA Community is a rich and vibrant one that brings people together for the love of their Toyotas. TLCA Membership is open to anyone interested in Toyota 4 wheel drive vehicles. This includes all models of Land Cruisers, FJ Cruisers, 4Runners, Lexus LX and GX Series, and 4×4 trucks.

Our members are off-road enthusiasts that share our passion for the outdoors, and preserving them for future trail riders. They understand that enjoying off-road recreation is a privilege and support conservation efforts here in Kentucky as well as nationally by supporting organizations such as SFWDA and Tread Lightly!.

The purpose of the KYTLCA is to provide a social setting to explore, maintain, preserve and enjoy, with our fellow club members the inaccessible portions of the beautiful state of Kentucky. We strive to be available, when called upon, to help in emergencies where our 4 wheel drive vehicles and personnel are needed.

The Kentucky Toyota Land Cruiser Association (KYTLCA) is a regional chapter of the larger Toyota Land Cruiser Association (TLCA). As such, all members of the KYTLCA are required to be active members of the TLCA, and follow their guidelines in addition to ours.

Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway

The Byway was created for anyone in a capable 4WD vehicle to access the beauty of Eastern Kentucky. With your help we can maintain, improve and expand this wonderful trail system and guarantee its access for generations to come. Please remember when enjoying the outdoors in any capacity to always follow the “Tread Lightly” principles.

The Byway is a moderately difficult, high clearance route for licensed, street legal vehicles. It utilizes historic county roads around the Red River Gorge and Daniel Boone National Forest. It contains terrain surfaces varying between one third gravel, one third trail, and one third asphalt. It can be completed within a full day or two, depending on various factors.
