Mike Maddux is a welder and fabricator by trade, but he lives on a ranch in the central coast of California, miles off of any paved road, where he needs a truck that will smoothly eat up dirt roads at high speed while still being able to haul a bag of feed or a mess of tools. His truck of choice? A 2003 Toyota Tundra Extra Cab with a long-travel front end and a bed that still has some storage space. Maddux has had the truck built this way for a few years now, and it's proved to be a great vehicle for all-around recreation, daily-driving, and for prerunning and chasing during race season.
But being the owner of a fab shop like Central Coast Prerunners (CCP) would almost force one to go further. The truck lacks a full rollcage-something it should definitely have-and the Tundra's race prerunning duties are starting to require a bit more suspension. Therefore, Maddux has designed is own Tundra long-travel kit that CCP will be releasing soon. His truck will be the first to get the suspension, and he'll be adding a stealthy interior rollcage to protect him and his family.
When the CCP Tundra kit is done, we'll have to check back in with Mike and see what they've come up with. Stay tuned.
