Fishing is a sport, or if you prefer, a recreational activity, loved by many people around the world, and as with all sports, it requires various items of equipment, which is where Toyota comes into the picture.
Set to make its world premiere at the 2012 SEMA show on October 30, is what the Japanese carmaker calls the "Ultimate Fishing Tundra" concept and which was developed by Bassmaster Elite Series pro angler and renowned builder of custom Tundras for anglers, Britt Myers.
The 38-year old fishing champion, who owns North Carolina-based CS Motorsports, used a 2012 Toyota Tundra CrewMax as the base for his creation that has been turned into an angler's dream truck.
The most impressive addition to the Tundra is a retractable box that features an automatic, motorized delivery system found at the rear end of the vehicle.
Myers explains: "It has a bed-area tackle storage system that looks like a Bass Pro Shop aisle... with tackle, reels, rods and even a refrigerator."
The prototype also gets a roof rack system with special LED lighting for fishing rod storage.
Finished in a matte paint job, the truck has been toughened up with bull bars, custom made bumpers, a TRD Big Brake Kit, a 12-inch suspension lift, huge Nitto 38" x 15.50" x 20" Mud Grappler tires, a Warn 16k winch system and running boards.
The interior of the Tundra also received some love by CS Motorsports, which replaced the rear bench with two bucket seats and custom built a fiberglass console that extends from the dash to the rear cab wall with built-in video monitors and subwoofers.
Under the hood, Myers and his team gave the stock 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine some extra oomph with the addition of a TRD supercharger and exhaust system.
