Much like our readers, we often wonder what happens to the trucks we see being built up in magazines. Is the truck holding up? Are all those aftermarket products doing what they promised? Would the products still be recommendations after jumping, mashing, pushing and wrenching on them for a couple years? This month we wanted to share how our '07 Toyota Tundra SEMA Project vehicle is doing. Although this truck was originally built for a show, we have put it through its paces off-road because that's what we do.
How about the truck itself?
The Tundra has been a pleasure to drive. The top five features that we really love about the truck aside from the aftermarket modifications are the big V-8 engine, back-up camera, shift on the fly 4WD system, cabin space and good towing capabilities (even though we never tow with ours). The Dirt-Tech-built bed cage is now gone because the truck needed to be able to carry our Polaris RZR in the bed, which it does nicely. The L&G Enterprises paint job has held up aside from a few corners where we accidentally scraped a few obstacles in our way. Aside from normal oil change maintenance, the truck hasn't needed the assistance of a mechanic. It's been a great couple years with the truck and depending on how much longer we have the truck you just may see a revamped faster and stronger Tundra in OFF-ROAD soon.
