The 5.7L-equipped truck came from the factory with a 4.30 rear axle, which really helps the truck get moving combined with the low first gear in the six-speed transmission, but being so high with 37-inch tires, it still wouldn't be as quick as it was when it was stock. Again, TRD was called upon to supply Dave with the necessary parts to ensure he wouldn't have to compromise acceleration. A TRD supercharger whips the 5.7L into a 510hp frenzy and the TRD exhaust caps it all off with a roar.
The only aspect of the build that Dave didn't handle himself was the paint. After cooking up a showstopping paint scheme with help from a rendering by Eye Kandy Designs, Dave handed the truck over to Bill Mathews Auto Body, also in Springfield, where the truck was divided in two with BASF candy blue over white. While still in the booth, a set of Bushwacker pocket-style flares were also painted. The flares give the Tundra an even bolder look and wider stance. Nick Edwards Custom Paint stepped in with his airbrush and added some sinister skulls and smoky blue flames before Doug Canham capped it all off with his pinstriping brush. After the truck rolled out of the spray booth and the crew at Bill Mathews Auto Body was satisfied with the buffed paint, Dave got to work installing a set of N-Fab steps and Prerunner bar with three Pro Comp lights. A custom truck can't showcase a factory grille insert, so a chrome and mesh riveted insert from RBP was mounted up front. As a finishing touch, 2 Brothers emblems from billetbadges.com were mounted on each door as well as the tailgate.
Dave wanted to thank his wife Anne, and daughters Madisyn and Makenzie for their support during the build. The two brothers definitely couldn't have pulled off their builds without the help of their families and several companies that stepped up to help, including: Eye Kandy Designs, Bushwacker, BASF, Green Toyota, TRD, Asanti, Toyo, RPB, N-Fab, Auto Meter, Bulletproof Suspensions, Amsoil, Billetbadges.com, and Rockford Fosgate.
