Jason, our admin, was visiting Stevinson Toyota West last week and was taken aback by the Tundra in their showroom. Check it out:

This truck is awesome. They started with a brand new Tundra Limited Doublecab 4×4 and added a ProComp 6″ lift, ARB front bumper, Warn 12k winch, Leer tonneau cover, TRD exhaust, TRD cold air intake, TRD rear sway bar, Ultra Motosports 20″ Goliath wheels, and Toyo Open Country 37″ tires. They’ve also done some paint work – Applewood Auto Body painted some very nice ghost flames and added blacked-out logos. They also painted the door handles, mirrors, and grill to match. It’s a trick truck – check out more photos below.

The truck was created to compete in the 2008 National Western Stock Show Accessories Challenge, and it did pretty well too (1st place). We can see why – it’s a very well done truck. Props to Stevinson Toyota West for creating this beauty.

    truck looks amazing-my question is with the increased tire size how did you calibrate the speedo? i have heard from my dealer there is nothing he can do to my speedo to make it read correctly. i to have 35″ tires and would like to calibrate to read correctly

  2. Michael – Great question. Officially, there is nothing that can be done by your dealer to reprogram or recalibrate the factory speedo. Toyota designed the ECU so this couldn’t occur. However, you can install an inline speedo correction module. Hypertech sells one:

    i want to install 37 or 35 inch tires with 20 inch wheels on a 2wd tundra any idea about gas mileage

  4. Jacob – We know someone who put 37’s on his truck (along with a 6″ stage II procomp lift) and he’s getting about 14mpg. Not too bad considering…

    I have an 07 tundra and am puttng the same lift on it but i want 35″ tires and was wondering do you have to do any thing to the gears on it?
    My truck has 32 stock when i got it.

  7. Daniel – You won’t need to change any gears, but you should probably invest in a speedometer correction device like this one from Hypertech:

  8. austin says:

    how much does lifts and tires cost in the end?

  9. Austin – The Stage II lift kit runs about $1700 in parts, the labor can be anywhere from $1000 to $2000, and the wheels and tires can cost as much as you want (but figure $1500 to get a very basic set of both).

  10. Grant says:

    I have put 35″ tires on my 07 Tundra that came stock with 4.3 gears and I can tell a big difference in the my low end power, especially when I’m towing . Where can I get aftermarket gears to get my low end power back? Thank you, Grant.

  11. Jason says:

    Grant – No after-market gears that I’m aware of.

  12. lex says:

    Hi! Jason, is it real to put on 35″ tires require only 3″ lift kit? Because my Toyota dealer said: I could only put 33″ tires for 3″ lift kit. They could install the 3″ lift kit for me less then 2hrs.

  13. Jason says:

    lex – I’ve heard that you can stuff some 35’s under a 3″ lift, but I haven’t seen too many examples. My suggestion is to go with 33’s – less chance of rubbing and popping an expensive tire.

    • nick says:

      I have a 3in leaving kit on my 2012 tundra fits 35s with minor trimming to the front bumper. A little rubbing on the sway bar nothing serious.

  14. Ryan says:

    Hi jason. This ’08 Tundra is amazing looking and the perfect truck has everything i would ever want. How much was this truck going for??? Im in CA and if i could find another one like this i want to know where it is.


  15. Ryan says:

    I have a 2000 toyota tundra limited edition now and its going strong but having 4wd and being able to saftely go out and offroad is the way to go specially with this nice ’08 tundra!

  16. Jason says:

    Ryan – I can’t remember exactly, but around $40k brand new with all the extras.

  17. haha…great looking truck, but it’s missing the black widow headache rack!

  18. this is a very very very nice truck i would drive this thing all day and night

  19. Ryan says:

    What brand are those step bars on the truck?

  20. Jason says:

    Ryan – I wish I had put that info in this post. I’m pretty sure those were factory bars, but they might have been from the official Toyota accessory catalog in 07′.

  21. Mickey says:

    Probably N-Fabs.

  22. Jason says:

    Mickey – Good call – that sounds familiar.

  23. nick says:

    why did you use a block lift in the rear? i thought toyota TRD made lift springs for the tacoma’s and tundra’s, and my dad is a MDT for toyota and he is going to help me build a truck alot like this one its awsome to look at.

  24. Jason says:

    nick – I’m not aware of new leafs from TRD for the Tundra that raise the truck…maybe they have them for the Taco.

    TRD does make new leafs that drop the Tundra, however.

    Blocks in the rear are the best way to preserve the factory ride as well as a very inexpensive option. They are the standard option for most Stage II 6″ lift kits, not to mention smaller 3″ kits.

    Thanks for commenting!

  25. […] ARB Bumper install information? Just wondering if anyone has gone with the ARB bumper? Looking to get one but want to make sure it is something I can do. I might right into a problem with the bumper bc it is a limited. The ARB setup appears to not need the bumper cap however I've heard the bumper mount is different. Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ARB bumper – Slee – Toyota Tacoma ARB Front Bumper A Prize Winning Lifted Toyota Tundra | Tundra Headquarters Blog […]
