UPDATE: Winner announced for the 2014 Raybestos Rattlesnake Toyota Tundra contest on Nov. 7, 2013. Dave Cramer, property manager in Vancouver, Wash won the truck.

“To say I’m excited would be an understatement,” said Cramer in a press release. “I must have entered 10,000 contests in my lifetime, and this is the first time I won anything.” Cramer said he’s a bit of a car fanatic. “I’m single, but I own five cars!”

The Raybestos Rattlesnake ups that to six. Cramer’s son Eric, a deputy sheriff and retired army ranger, joined him at the presentation.

The signature-edition truck was the grand prize in the brands’ 2013 North American summer sales promotion. The winning entry was pulled from more than 170,000 entries received.

Well-known Southern California tattoo artist Corey Miller will be applying his trade to sheet metal as part of an online contest.

Raybestos Brakes and Chassis have assembled an automotive dream team in the Phoenix desert to build a venomous off-road monster — the Raybestos Rattlesnake™ 2014 Toyota Tundra. This desert sidewinder is carefully being hand crafted by Addictive Desert Designs, with help from the boys at Joe Gibbs Racing, TRD, Mickey Thompson, Dick Cepek and it’s finished with a custom wrap created by world famous tattoo artist Corey Miller.

Tattoo Artist Corey Miller - 2014 Toyota Tundra

Well-known Tattoo Artist Corey Miller and Raybestos has teamed up to offer a one-of-a-kind 2014 Toyota Tundra giveaway.

Custom trucks like this have also gained a lot of attention for their uniqueness and often downright coolness. The combination of an experienced tattoo artist and a great looking truck should result in a really sweet looking ride.

If you don’t know Corey Miller, he has been featured on the TV-show L.A. Ink and his Southern California Six Feet Under tattoo shop is known around the world.

Miller told that even though he hasn’t worked on a vehicle before he is excited and motivated to get started. In regards to his design ideas, he said “I’m thinking of a dragon peeling out…this truck is going to be gritting its teeth and screaming forward just like a dragon does – absolutely shredding it.”

Why the Tundra? As stated on, Corey says that he’s always been an unapologetic truck guy and, when Toyota began making the Tundra larger, he took notice. “When I saw this truck, I realized how much they’d changed it, made it cooler,” he remembers.

“This is a Toyota but it is big and bitching [bad]. When something looks good, looks natural, like the new Tundra does, it is easy to be inspired. Honestly if this was another type of car, I wouldn’t be inclined to do it. But this is such a bold vehicle.”

The plan it seems is to take one of the first 2014 Tundra pickups off the line and immediately let Miller have free reign over its design.

The online contest is with Raybestos Brake and Chassis shop and will include a giveaway of the truck at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It will start on July 1, 2013, and run through October 15, 2013. Raybestos says the truck will be awarded to a lucky winner at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

    The dragon will look great. Like the new truck not sure about those rims.

    • Tim Esterdahl says:

      It is the “urban” styling. I don’t care for it either so much, but I CAN see a market for it.


  2. AD says:

    The front end does kind of look like a Ridgeline Damn!

  3. Mickey says:

    Maybe a mix of a ridgeline and a Ram.

  4. Qatar Cars says:

    Will be a great fusion

  5. JL says:

    Would look nice lowered with big chrome rims!!!!

  6. GoBig says:

    I’m not that in to “flash” but I do like some of the off road mods.

    The lights would be awesome. I have older PIAA’s on my truck, and should probably upgrade to more modern L.E.D. light.

  7. GoBig says:

    Tonight I went for a quick swim with the sharks. (visited the dealer’s lot) The salesmen were swarming.

    They have some 2014’s sprinkled in among the 2013s. I sat in a platinum edition CM. Wow, it was pretty nice by my standards anyway.

    They didn’t have the color/trim combination that I’m interested in, so I was just tire kicking tonight. I may plan another venture soon in case I don’t win the snake truck.

  8. Mickey says:

    I found this pretty interesting on How the big 3 are the most stolen trucks. Is that Toyota has a better security system or that the big 3 break down so much you are in a constant need for parts.

    • Tim Esterdahl says:


      That is interesting. I wonder if this is simply a numbers game though. There are more Big 3 trucks than Toyota out there and more on the job sites (most vandalized place).


  9. Mickey says:

    Congrats Dave!!!!

  10. Randy says:

    I like it a lot: The artwork, creativity, and the engineering. Stuff like that takes real skilz.

  11. T says:

    You missed something…”TRD Supercharger”…odds are they will be releasing it shortly.

    The way I see it with Bully Dog cracking the ECU, Turbos will be a great alternative for more power at about the same price. The Gen 3 T has good things coming its way, get it before the CAF crap kicks in.

  12. Will says:

    Corey Miller! is going to do some artwork on skin, he’ll be applying his trade to sheet metal and customizing a 2014 Toyota Tundra! Corey plans to use a fusion of Asian and American motifs to make this truck into a mean dragon-looking machine!

  13. Mike T says:

    i would say you have to wait until you see the truck that Corey Miller will be customizing!
    why not he is the most famous for tato.
    he’ll be applying his artistic talent to the fiberglass, plastic and metal on the N Charlotte Toyota Tundra!
    this vehicle has already been named “The Dragon,” hinting to what the final product will look like.
