If you want to survive an apocalypse, this truck is your best bet

The Toyota Tundra is known for its rock-solid reliability. It’s also strong, well-built, a competent hauler, and tough enough to be taken off the roads as well. But, it looks like this owner was not happy with the Bruce Banner version of his Tundra and decided to transform it into Hulk.

The model in question is a 2013 CrewMax equipped with the TRD Off-road package. This Tundra is a completely different monster inside-out and might be your best bet if we face an apocalypse.

It Doesn’t Even Look Like A Tundra Anymore

This 2013 Tundra has 48,000 miles on the odometer. On the outside, it features new bumpers, bull bar, taller ride height, roof rack, auxiliary lights, and a whole lot of other things. Everything is listed here:

  • Custom Steel Bumpers
  • Bushwacker Fender Flares
  • BDS Skid Plates
  • 20-inch Fuel Hostage Wheels
  • 37-inch Toyo Open Country Mud-Terrain Tires
  • ARB Safari Snorkel
  • 17,500-pound Smittybilt X20 Winch
  • Roof Rack with Ladder
  • LED Lighting all around and GTR Lighting Conversion Kit

The previous owner also installed a roof-mounted winch that lowers the spare-wheel assembly and allows you to use the tailgate normally.

On the inside, things are a little sedate. A lot of factory stuff like the gray leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a backup camera, navigation, and a JBL 12-speaker sound system with Bluetooth connectivity are retained.

There are a few add-ons, like the dual console-mounted fire extinguishers, a loudspeaker control unit, laser-etched console switches, and an electronic brake-proportioning valve. The owner has also added Husky all-weather floor liners in the front and rear. The standard instrument cluster is equipped with more auxiliary gauges and a tablet mount.

That’s A Lot Of Mechanical Changes

The truck still drives on the standard 5.7-liter, V-8 mill that makes 381 ponies and 401 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, and the power is sent to all the wheels via an electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system. The suspension system receives a lot of changes. It includes:

  • Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air-Spring Kit
  • Seven-inch Suspension Lift with Fox Racing Shox Dampers
  • Additional rear damping with Fox 2.0 Performance Series shocks
  • Three-inch Body Lift
  • BDS Suspension Upper Control Arms and Traction Bars
  • Heim-joint Sway-Bar Links
  • Transfer Flow 46-gallon Fuel Tank

Condition and Maintenance

The dealer selling this Armageddon-ready truck acquired it in spring this year and has replaced the front brakes, performed an alignment, and changed the oil. The truck has had two owners to date and it has been registered in Utah and California. There are no accidents or other issues reported. The manufacturer’s literature and a Carfax report are offered with it, too. Despite all the mods, this Tundra has a clean California title.
