Most custom truck enthusiasts have a list of trucks they have owned and a list they have yet to own. Chances are that once a truck guy or gal grips on to a certain make and body style it gets pretty tough to build anything else.
For Scott Stephenson, owner of Platinum Collision Repair in Midland, Texas, the designers at Toyota synthesized Scott’s truck drug when they created the Tundra.
As time rolled on, Scott regretted selling the Tundra and was ready for another one. The first step in creating this skyscraping sequel was to get a hold of Shaun Freilich at Complete Customs and arrange the delivery of a 2012 Toyota Tundra. To get the truck in the air Shaun installed a 12-inch Bulletproof lift kit with Fox 2.5 remote reservoir shocks and Atlas leaf springs in the rear, and 2.5 Fox coil-overs up front. The suspension was powder-coated orange for show detail and planted under the elevated chassis are 20 x 10-inch RBP 97R wheels custom-painted orange and black and clothed in Toyo Open Country M/T 38×12.50×20 tires.To give the body a dose of detail Shaun installed a RBP RX-3 custom-painted grille. Dressing the leading and trailing edges are orange powder-coated n-FAB bumpers accented by Rigid Industries LED light bars. For a rugged look under the doors and an extra boost for passengers entering the cab, Shaun installed n-FAB nerf bars to accent the rockers. Even after Scott experienced owning and driving one of the most soughtafter sports cars ever created, he still couldn’t resist the feeling you get when you tower over everyone in a bad-ass lifted truck. The power of this truck addiction strikes again.
