The hunt is on for Toyota

TOYOTA has developed a special version of its Tundra pick-up truck that comes with a roof-mounted, camouflaged base camp for hunters.

The Tundra 4WD has a viewing – and presumably shooting – platform on its top deck, which comes complete with camouflaged tent, guard rails and matching camouflaged camping chairs.

Inside, the truck is designed to be a mobile command centre, with the latest GPS tracking devices to keep an eye on game and the weather.

The cargo tray has three separate sections, with a swing-out work bench, mobile kitchen, storage and a water tank.
And when the owner isn’t maiming wildlife, the truck itself is doing a pretty good job of damaging the ozone layer with a 5.7-litre V8 engine.

The Toyota is one of a rash of crazy modified vehicles that have descended on the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas, which showcases modified vehicles and aftermarket components.
