Toyota Teams with DC Shoes and West Coast Customs at SEMA Show
The 2011 SEMA Show has come and gone, and it brought a wide range of new and exciting one-of-a-kind masterpieces with it. The show's dedicated to everything aftermarket, and as such, automakers from around the world are encouraged to show off what the various vehicles in their lineups are really capable of. This is something that excites us here at Elk Grove Toyota, as we know that our favorite Japanese automaker doesn't take a challenge like this lightly.
And for proof of this notion, look no further than the Ultimate Motocross Truck. The vehicle is the result of Toyota teaming with DC Shoes, and a number of aftermarket specialists to gather information on what the world's hottest motocross riders would like to see in a specialty truck that's aimed at making travel and maintenance between shows a breeze.
After taking what the riders had to say to heart, Toyota enlisted the help of the automotive gurus at West Coast Customs to make the riders' collective dreams into a reality. They started with a 2012 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4X4, and from there, they added a plethora of upgrades. For more details, make sure to hit up the quick look below!
