Lifted Tundra Features Totally Awesome ‘80s Design
This 2010, Baja-inspired Toyota truck could rip a hole in time and makes a Raptor look pedestrian.
Trophy trucks are those insane machines that fly through rough terrain like no big deal. When it comes to Trophy-like trucks that can be used for the road, Ford cornered the market with the F-150 Raptor. But there’s still a lot owners can do to turn their pickup into an off-roading animal. Like the previous owner of this 2010 Toyota Tundra did.
We found this heavily-modified Tundra on the Classic Cars site, where it’s being sold at AMG Auto Sales in Raleigh, N.C. While the listing doesn’t have a complete spec sheet on all of the changes that have been made to the truck, it’s clear to see a few of them.
Immediately, it’s clear to see the ‘80s-inspired graphics at the back, which look like a T-Rex tore through the bed. The letters “TRD” are plastered on the black in what looks like chrome, while six massive black stripes run at an angle across the side. It looks great on the truck, as the rest of the machine is all white.
At the front sits a massive bull bar that continues onto the hood for a menacing appearance. It looks like something vintage trucks sported when they raced and matches the mean, ferocious design of the vehicle. Underneath the bull bar sits a beefy skid plate that looks like it could crush rocks and not just protect the Tundra’s under carriage from rough terrain. Oh yeah, there’s also a massive strip of lights at the top to light the whole neighborhood during a power outlet.
The Tundra has also benefitted from a lift, and while there are no concrete numbers, it looks like it’s at least a few inches taller than a stock truck. To make best use of the suspension upgrades, the truck’s fitted with Mickey Thompson Baja tires.
While the exterior features various upgrades in the name of performance, the interior looks stock with a three-tone-color scheme featuring gray trim pieces, tan leather, and black components, as well. The exterior’s all business, but the interior looks like a nice, comfortable place to be when the going gets rough.
According to the listing, the truck has 131,312 miles, which, by our best guess are hard miles. Still, the truck being a Toyota and all, will probably last a lifetime of off-roading and daily use. Why wait for Toyota to build a road-legal Trophy truck when you can build, or even purchase, your own.
