If you've been following along, you know that we've made great strides in improving our 2014 Toyota Tundra Overland Project, which is a joint effort between Truckin and Fuel Offroad. Starting with a slightly used 2014, we got the suspension performance and stance right with a BDS upper arm and Fox coilover kit. We added 35-inch Fuel tires to the existing Fuel wheels (but we've got some custom Fuel wheels coming soon for the big reveal). Then we added ADD bumpers and steps filled with Rigid LED lighting. The drivability and improvements in the looks department is already paying dividends in the thumbs up and weekend fun departments.
This month we headed out to Fuller Truck Accessories in Fullerton, California, for a trifecta of awesome additions that will make this truck a whole lot more capable and family friendly out in the wild. We started this next phase of the build with ARE for one of their Z-model truck caps. Their caps come with all of the standard features like frameless glass, a carpeted interior, a third brake light, and flawless paint-matching. To match the inside of the shell to the bed floor, we ordered up a genuine Bed Rug to make things that much more cozy inside. And for our final trick, we reached out to Topper Lift for their Weekender Camper Package, which is comprised of two parts: a set of actuators that bolt from the bed floor and the bedrail to the shell, allowing it to raise the ARE cap up. There is also a skirt that fits in between the bed and shell when it's raised and a full tent that attaches to the back and transforms your truck bed into a travelling bunkhouse!
Check out the install below and make sure you check back next month as we get just a little closer to calling this project done. Be sure to check out the websites in the source box to see what is available for your truck, and head over to truckin.com to see our Tundra build in its entirety.
