Heavily-modified Toyota trucks are something of a tradition at the annual SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas - and the 2012 edition of the show has lived up to expectations.
The Japanese automaker has unveiled both a customized fishing-oriented Tundra truck and a Baja-themed FJ Cruiser at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Celebrating its professional fishing partnerships, this "fishing rig" is outlandishly customized with everything an "Elite Series pro could imagine - and then some," Toyota says.
Starting with a bone stock 2012 Tundra CrewMax, North Carolina's CS Motorsports added a huge tackle storage system that Bassmaster Elite Series pro angler Britt Myers compared to a Bass Pro Shops aisle. Included are tackle, reels, rods and a refrigerator.
Inside, the rear bench seat was replaced with buckets and a fiberglass console that features built-in video monitors and subwoofers. A Navionics-style lake mapping system is also included.
To finish out the Tundra, the truck features a TRD Big Brake Kit, a 12-inch suspension lift and a TRD supercharger and exhaust setup.
Looking almost production-ready, the Baja-themed FJ-S Cruiser is labeled as a concept car, but we wouldn't be surprised to see a less-modified version arrive in showrooms soon.
To tackle desert driving, the FJ Cruiser's chassis was given an underbody exoskelton to boost stiffness for serious off road jumps. Bilstein racing shocks provide a 1.3 inch lift and 17-inch beadlock-style wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires offer up a dose of swagger.
The stock 4.0-liter V6 was given a TRD Twin Vortex supercharger, which boosts power to 345 horsepower and 340 lb-ft. of torque. Finishing off the powertrain mods is a cat-back exhaust system.
Externally, the FJ-S stands apart with a front nudge bar and rock rails, while two-tone leather seats and unique floor mats round out the interior.
