THE TUNDRA seen in the above video is Toyota USA’s big-daddy pick-up – a six-metre long, two-metre wide hunk of American freedom.
Californian lad Chris Lopez is the owner of this self-titled “Blue Dream Tundra”, and he has tweaked it considerably since he bought the showroom-fresh Platinum edition three years back.
Despite wearing a few faces in the past three years the current incarnation is in full battle-spec mode, with the 5.7-litre, V8-powered Tundra adorned with a host of aftermarket goodness from head to toe.
Pro Comp long-travel suspension, new upper and lower control arms and a leaf pack were installed to improve wheel travel and ride height, while 35x12.5 Pro Comp Xtreme MT2s are wrapped around matching Pro Comp Vapor Pro alloy beadlock wheels.
Protection is provided via N-Fab front and rear bumpers, a Pro Comp skid plate, N-Fab rock rails, as well as an N-Fab bed cage (sprayed in Rhino Linings) that holds two spare tyres and a Pro Eagle jack.
A 3M vinyl wrap from Daley Visual is complemented by a combination of Rigid Radiance Series lights in the bumper, behind the grille and above the cabin.
Other features include dual Black Widow exhausts with RBP tips, a HornBlaster Nightmare Kit, a Bully Dog tuner, Buggy whips, Spyder Auto head- and tail-lights, Pro Comp fender flares, and Nitro 4.88 gears in the rear end with an Auburn locker.
