Toyota Racing Development (TRD) has teamed up with Marty Schwerter at Toyota Motorsports Garage to transform the all-new 2022 third-generation Toyota Tundra TRD Pro into a chase truck called the TRD Desert Chase Tundra. These types of trucks support the racing vehicles during the races in the open desert and are the unsung heroes of the sport. They’re tasked with carrying tons of tools, parts, and salvage gear to aid racing vehicles, and they must be able to reach far enough places if the racing vehicle becomes stationary. A racing vehicle is nothing without its pursuit crew and rigging.
It’s only natural to present the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro as a chase truck (but honestly, it also looks pretty rad close to the ground) – and with the extra prep this Tundra has received, it’s completely ready to jump on race day. The TRD-designed long-travel suspension (which uses original mounting points and hardware) has been replaced without any mods, making the truck wider and allowing harder hits. A widebody kit from TRD’s composite shop in North Carolina looks killer and fits the suspension. The wheels are 18-inch forged aluminum Methods (with Method’s Bead Grip technology to run tires at lower tire pressure), and the tires are 37-inch General Grabber X3.
To light up the desert in total darkness, the Desert Chase Tundra TRD Pro features hard lighting throughout. The roll bar mounted light bar can be electronically raised or lowered, reducing wind noise when not in use. Mounted on the roll bar are some essential elements of the all-terrain hunting: an all-terrain jack, a CO2 cylinder, gasoline and water cans, two spare tires and an ARB recovery board. Tred Pro. The bumpers were developed by TRD to increase protection and the angle of approach. Complete Customs applied the new coat of glossy white paint, suitable for hiding desert dirt and keeping the truck cool and visible.
