Rutledge Wood, best known for being a host of the US hit show Top Gear, has created quite a unique set of wheels to take part in the annual 2016 Hot Rod Power Tour. Interestingly, this isn’t the vehicle which will be running the tour. He’s commissioned that job to hi 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. Instead, the Toyota Tundra you see here is just his support vehicle. But in a sea of hot rods, this yellow custom modified wide body Tundra seemed to fit right in.

The Tundra started life as a 2008 model regular cab truck with a short-bed. Those who are familiar with this year of Tundra will quickly spot he biggest visual difference being a complete front end off of a 2016 Tundra TRD PRO being swapped onto the 2008 body. The body was then widened at all corners by renown Japanese wide body kit manufacturer Tra Kyoto. Now the Tundra easily swallows those 20-inch wheels. But looks are only so good I you don’t have the power to back things up, so Wood choose to up the power ante with a TRD supercharger.
