Toyota pulled out all the stops for SEMA 2010 with a whole bunch of concepts worth checking out. One concept in particular caught my eyes – the Tundra Sportsman.
Described by the automaker as a “command center for extended hunting trips” and “the ultimate sportsman fantasy transport and base camp.” The man-centric vehicle at its core is a 2011 Tundra Double Cab 4Ã—4 with a 5.7-liter V8 plus the Rock Warrior package from TRD and enormous 12.5-inch Nitto Mud Grapplers sitting on 18-inch ATX Teflon-coated wheels – a more than sturdy base vehicle. As if that wasn’t already enough truck for you, Toyota also bolted on a three-inch suspension lift, a custom air intake, snorkel, and a custom exhaust system that ends in the center of the bed – if you’re thinking it can’t get any better prepare yourself for a trip beyond the tip of this man-berg.
The Tundra’s bed holds a plethora of goodies, thanks to the help of Bass Pro Shops, this king of the outdoors has “everything required for conventional firearm and bow hunting…as well as an area for meal preparation.” The driver’s side of the bed has a fold-down workbench, locking steel rifle case, and a pistol safe, while the other side includes a fold down work surface, bow storage cabinet, and a closet for camo. A food prep area is available on the tailgate, which features a mobile kitchen stocked with a small stove and a built-in seven-gallon water tank.
Oh and lest I forget they did a little work up top too, adding on an 86-square-foot platform which can be used as a hunting blind or sleeping quarters and is accessible via a side-mounted ladder. If this isn’t the manliest truck ever created by a major manufacturer I don’t know what is…
