Tundra's were never considered part of the sport truck world really, so nobody produced any full body kits for them. There are some different bumpers you might be able to find though.

Maybe you can modify this sweet kit to fit?

man that really sucks ... and I agree Tundras were never considered sport trucks ... until recently, I really find it amazing nobody has come up with a kit... maybe a business opportunity here! (if i had the $$ to invest on it :rolleyes: ). oh well ... I'm sure someone will eventually come up with a kit or something by the time mine is paid off LOL

yuck, i'm not going to throw $$$ into pretty much worthless pieces of fiberglass/urethane on my tundra. just not my style. clean and mean is the way to go, the tundra's body was designed well enough to be able to look amazing just as it is :)

Dammit! Not another body kitter! Bar none the ugliest mod you can do to a vehicle with a close second going to 13" gold daytons!

I have to disagree. The Tacoma S-Runner had a TRD body kit available that made it really stand out from other trucks. Of course, if you had the S/C on it too, it was show and go. I used to leave mustangs from traffic lights. That's probably more because they weren't expecting this rice looking truck to actually have some balls. Mine looked just like below when I bought it new in 2003. The only difference was I had black badging. They did away with chrome badging in 2002 (for s-runner only)

I agree that the S-Runner looked good. However to me, it was a pseudo body kit. In that, I mean that since it was a factory installed kit, it looked like it belonged on the vehicle. Plus, it helps that the truck is lower to the ground and therefore the body kit is justified. A stock height truck (such as a Tundra) with a body kit just seems out of place

Well each person has their own likes and dislikes and only because you may not like it doesn't mean they don't look good.. besides, what if I tell you I'll be lowering the truck? so I guess there isn't one out there right? that's all I really needed to know, thanks guys :tu:

i've seen a guy make his own body kit using big slabs of styrofoam and fiberglass and another guy make one using chicken wire and fiberglass.
Around here (Close to the border) we see plenty of Body kits and Spoilers made from the Home depot. 2x4 Spoilers and rain gutters used as body kits. I always wanted a green T-Top Pinto so I can put Brama Bull Stickers on the door with Gold trim around every door and hood, Gold Daytons and a Chrome chicken on the hood. Clearance lights on the top a Custom home made 2x4 spoiler with the interior dingleballs hanging from the headliner. Now that would be the sweetest ride ever.
