At this year's SEMA Show, Toyota set out to deliver a lineup of trucks that each serve a different purpose. More specifically, the Japanese automaker showed off two variants of the 2012 Toyota Tacoma tailored to the needs of rally racers and surfers, as well as a modified 2012 Toyota Tundra, which is aimed at making the lives of motocross racers a bit easier.
Lugging a motorcycle from show to show, while also cleaning and maintaining it is no small feat, so it only makes sense that there would be some heavy modifications involved in creating what has been officially dubbed the Ultimate Motocross Truck. The name might sound like hyperbole, that notion quickly fads upon noticing the vehicle's core base, which is a Double Cab 4X4.
The already versatile Tundra is then fitted with a suicide tailgate, a winch and ramp for loading bikes, a pressure washer for cleaning them, and an air compressor for filling tires. And, to ensure that the Ultimate Motocross Truck can make it to any event, no matter how treacherous the terrain, it also features 128 X 9 KMC wheels with 35 X 12.5 X 18 General tires, Fox racing shocks, and a Camburg Racing suspension lift.
With such a wide of upgrades, it only makes sense that Toyota would want to continue showing off the truck at various motocross events, and that's exactly what's in store for the larger-than-life Tundra as we head into the 2012 MX season. Bayside Toyota, located at 1200 Solomons Island Rd. Prince Frederick, MD 20678, promises to keep you updated on the Ultimate Motocross Truck if it ever makes it close to the greater Prince Frederick area or enters limited production; so make sure to stay tuned.
