But since the truck still needed to function as his primary vehicle, he needed to go with a look that suited hitting the show circuit on the weekends, but still wasn’t over-the-top flashy for his kids’ morning school drop-off line. “It basically has to be suitable for all my daily routines and weekend activities,” he admits. He initially chose the Tundra for its 4x4 capabilities to handle various terrains.
Calling the build “Chase Truck Tundra,” Edward was inspired by the infamous King of the Hammers event, which he attended a few times. “I saw these well-equipped support vehicles for the race trucks, and loved all the gear, equipment and rugged capability on them. I worked closely with Evil Manufacturing in La Habra, CA, to get the right look and feel of the truck.”
The Avery Dennison Brushed Aluminum textured vinyl wrap makes the Tundra stand out from the rest, due to the fact that it’s never been seen on a truck before. “From far away, it looks like a matte gray, but close up, you can really see the texture,” he notes. “This definitely gave the truck a look that entertained spectators at events.”
