After spending months searching for the perfect 2010 Tundra, installing a comprehensive suite of performance modifications, and then adding a top-notch stereo and chrome, it’s time to wrap this build-out up with a bed liner, BedRug, and a better-than-average SnugTop topper.
Bed Liner or Bed Rug – Or Both?
I’m sure some people will wonder why Chris opted for both a bed liner and a bedrug, but I have a pretty good idea: bedrugs don’t scratch or mar precious cargo the way that a tough spray-in liner can…which means they’re more comfortable for man’s best friend, less likely to damage your great Aunt’s china, and they really muffle the sound of a dead body rolling around in the back (OK, I made that last one up). The point is, why not? I don’t want to hear any bellyaching.
After a brief hiatus, it’s back to work telling the story about Chris’s rock star Tundra Crew. This week: a little chrome, and a whole lot of stereo equipment.
Follow along as we break down a comprehensive high-end sound system installation in a 2010 Tundra crew that puts the “rock” in Rock Star.
There’s no motorsport out there that offers the same larger-than-life thrills found in the world of monster truck racing. When Toyota of Wallingford was looking for a way to reach out to the local community as well as some attract attention, the Connecticut-based dealership decided to break new ground by getting involved in monster trucks in a very big way. In doing so the dealership, which has been in business for over 13 years, also managed to break down some of the barriers in the world of these high horsepower, metal-munching machines by sponsoring one of the few Toyota Tundra-based teams active in the sport.
This is the second post in a series about the Rock Star Tundra build-out. Be sure to check out the first post if you haven’t seen it already.
Now that Chris had finally found the right truck, it was time focus on making the stock 5.7 Tundra Crew a better performer. First up – better brakes.
It started all the way back in April 2009, when Chris sent us an email asking if we had any info on 2010 Tundra pricing. As time went by, we got more emails from Chris, keeping us up-to-date on his search for the perfect truck, his plans for accessories, and some much-appreciated comments on the site.
Over the last year, Chris’s dream of building the ultimate truck – a “rock star” – has taken form. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be reviewing the build-out of Chris’s brand new 2010 Tundra. Today’s post talks about the purchase process and introduces the truck, and future posts will discuss options and accessories, show you pictures along the way, and hopefully entertain. Here we go:
