Craigslist: Supercharged Toyota Tundra CrewMax on 37s

Kamil Kaluski September 13, 2012 Redusernab Truck Thursday 63 Comments

Sometime in 2007 I wondered into a Toyota dealership looking for the new FJ Cruiser. While there I noticed the then all-new Tundra. I was very impressed with the CrewMax Limited that smack in the middle of the showroom. While pickup trucks are somewhat foreign to this city-slicker, the Tundra looked nothing like the commercial grade Chevy and Ford trucks I used in one of my jobs. Leather everywhere, DVD player, surround sound, for all I knew this could have been a Lexus. Then I saw the window sticker… fifty-five thousand dollars. For a pickup truck.

I have never before gone blind and choked at the same time. Upon returning to the steady state of mental and physical consciousness, I quickly dragged myself to a low-level Corolla located nearby. I got thinking about who would pay that much money for a pickup truck and while at the same time I was calculating what kind of a new bimmer that buys.

This brings us to today’s CL find, 2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 4WD CrewMax, but very unlike what I have seen in showroom that day. It’s lifted, supercharged, and is rather mint. Add the fact that there is only 43,000 miles on it and you know that the seller of this already pricey truck will be asking good money for it.

Tip of the hat to Leo from Atlanta for sending this in. All other, please, keep sending in tips, we read them all but can’t possibly get to most of them.

Now we know a thing or two about supercharged Tundras, but this vehicle is a little more confused than the drag-strip queen that Jeff hooned. Six-inch suspension lift and a three-inch body make enough room to fit a set of 37″ mud-terrains. But then it’s never been off-road, nor was it built with off-roading in mind. With stock gearing you’ll probably use all the power that’s available in that S/Ced engine all the time. The rear rack further confuses me as it makes the bed less usable. To me, the it does not seem to do any specific “truck thing” better than trucks costing half its price.

The seller is asking $41,000 for this truck, which includes a rather fair 40% of the cost of the parts he put into it. While this does not make me hyperventilate the way the new fifty-five grand brand new truck did, it is still a lot of money. It’s been said in many-a-car-forums that after-market parts don’t add value, but I don’t always agree with that. I have a feeling that it will be a tough sell as it is highly personalized to the current owner’s taste and price. Good luck to the seller.


  • Matt

    43k with super-oversized 37" tires is probably 55k with OEM tires… 🙁

    • I would hope with all this work put into it he would have reprogrammed the speedo. It isn't that hard to do these days. No more swapping out gears in the transmission.

  • A 9" lift, 37" tires and the guy proudly proclaims "No Off roading". Bro Truck.

    I'll pass.

    • jeepjeff

      Bro truck was my first thought as well. Also, maybe it's just because I'm a TJ guy, but 9" of lift and you could only stuff 37" tires under there? Lame.

    • Yeah. I call them Burb Trucks, because you don't see them or the city, or in the sticks where trucks actually get used. Same diff. Useless as tits on a boar. Never using something like this to go off road is like having a Vette and never driving it over 45 MPH. Lame.

      • JW4077

        Haha I live in the country and have almost the same truck minus the 3 inch body life and I sport 35" tires on mine and have done a big brake upgrade with 6 piston rotors. Unlike this guy, I race mine from time to time. I have turned a 12.89 1/4 mile at 108 mph. Of course the supercharged and inter-cooled 5.7L makes 525 hp with 618 ft/lbs. With the charger I also have Thorley headers with high flow cats and a banks exhaust. I have fun with corvettes all the time. I kind of regret getting a 4wd truck. I should have got a 2wd and put the additional money into the motor. All in all I have about 74K into the truck. It's my toy.
        2010 Tundra Supercharged- farm truck haha

    • FuzzyPlushroom

      I was thinking of how eloquent he seems to be for a bro-truck owner.

      Still, no way.

  • Kevin Kiley

    It may be specifically to his taste, but it sure aint far off mine. I think it looks epic. If I could afford the gas bill that would make an awesome daily driver..

  • Spring-heeled Jack

    Atlanta? This is a Soccer-Mom truck in Alberta.

    • PowerTryp

      That is so true and I welcome yet another Canadian hoon.

  • calculatedrisk

    Wow, this thing gives new meaning to the term "Bro Dozer." That said, it looks pretty bad ass and probably pulls more attention than any BMW in ATL.

  • Ok, I'm going to say it. Trucks like this shouldn't be street legal.

    You should have to flatbed trailer this thing to private property to drive. A vehicle where the top of the grill is above eye-level to a 6' tall person is a menace to pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and everyone who chooses to drive a normal car. There is no reason for this vehicle to exist other than to desperately try to extend the driver's you-know-what. It is compromised in nearly every way – worse fuel economy, more difficult ingress and egress, any towing requires a dubiously-safe extension, worse handling, etc., etc., etc. The only likely improvement is off road – and this and most other drivers of these things don't even bother with that.

    • I agree. Those bumpers need to be lowered for street use. It would literally crush a car were it involved in an accident.

    • Scandinavian Flick

      I agree, and technically, it actually isn't. Laws vary by state, but where this useless behemoth hails from, Georgia, there are laws against lifting the front bumper above factory spec. Here in California, it's based off the measurement of headlights to the ground. Here's a list I found that doesn't really specify the exact law, and is full of hyperbole, but it gives some idea:

      Of course, these laws are enforced about as strictly as the laws that state you can't drive with your parking lights on, or ride a motorcycle with handlebars above your shoulder level.

      • Technically this truck is located in North Carolina. Their law seems a little more vague. However, I have seen plenty of truck like this in Georgia, I have NEVER heard of anybody being cited for bumper height though. This in a state that WILL cite you if you have window tint too dark on the front windows.

        • Scandinavian Flick

          Oh yeah, so it is. I just saw the link to "Atlanta Craigslist" but hadn't clicked it. The law seems to be one of those things like not running a front plate here. Police won't pull you over for it specifically unless they want a reason to do so, or they will use it to tack onto a moving violation.

        • FuzzyPlushroom

          I'm just jealous of being able to tint the front windows, full stop.

    • skitter

      To me, an even bigger issue is that pickups and SUVs should have to meet the same crash standards as cars in the first place.

    • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

      <img src="; width="415"> I know right, it hits or get creamed by practically any other car out there, it's going for a tumble! That's not safe at all. <img src="; width="415">

    • DamageInc.

      So I guess all tractor trailers should be taken off the road too then, "top of the grill above eye-level"! I'm glad you don't have a say in the traffic laws,

    • Guest

      Ok im going to reply this.
      A bumper that's 1 inch off the ground or 10 feet off the ground, if the person behind the wheel hits you, your going to get hurt no matter what. As far as I know from driving a truck, seeing over top of the driver that's not paying any attention to what's going on in front of them gives me the advantage of knowing what's going on. You obviously show you have a problem with these people that drive lifted trucks because you had to make that stupid comment about why people lift there vehicles. Most people that lift their vehicles like the one your mocking spend allot of money on it and are usually trying to be careful with it in the first place and are aware of the responsibilities of driving one. If this is what a person likes them who the hell are you to say otherwise! You seem to be the type of individual that sees something you don't like and expect everyone to follow because YOU do think it's right. The truth is, it's not the vehicle that kills people, it the irresponsible person driving and there are allot of them drive regulate cars such as the one you drive!

    "No Off-Roading, No rust, Not a daily driver. This truck is fully built and in Show Condition."

    A vehicle that never goes off road, never gets dirty, and is parked all week is not a truck; it's a garage queen. There's a certain kind of buyer for this, and we've discussed it before.

    • PowerTryp

      That kind of buyer doesn't read this site.

    • lost_and_found

      There is a certain kind of seller for this. I would happily buy this truck and take it off road and tow my boat with it. I wouldn't daily drive it, but weekly drive it certainly. It could replace my Discovery 1. It wouldn't go off road as well as my Disco, but it'd certainly do a better job of towing. But I'm not spending 40K on any truck.

      • jeepjeff

        His math is terrible. His mods (particularly to the bed) are tacky, I would think he should be doing KBB-Aftermarket if he actually wants to sell it. Definitely Crack Pipe.

      • MVEilenstein

        I can agree with you there – no truck is worth that much money.

  • Devin

    It's like a toy that has never been taken out of the box.

    • PowerTryp

      It's probably hasn't had any toys put into the box either.

  • Scandinavian Flick

    Kamil, your first paragraph addresses something I have been wondering for some time now… Modern trucks seem to be so much about modern luxury and comfort that they command prices like the new $50K Tundras. So what exactly is the market direction for trucks? I wouldn't want to spend $50K, even if I did have that kind of money to spend, on a vehicle I'm going to use as a truck.
    -I'm not going to dump a bunch of heavy crap in my $50K bed.
    -I'm not going to go in anything more than soft gravel and risk my $50K paint.
    -I'm not going to haul my work equipment on a bed rack or plaster my company's logos to the side of my $50K luxury cruiser and park it in a hard hat area…

    If I want to do any of that, I'll be searching the used market and spend no more than $10-15K on something that will get trashed.

    Who buys these things…?

    • Devin

      People who also buy those really expensive fifth-wheel trailers. Well, at least that's who I see buying them. Everyone I know who has an F-series Platinum or a very expensive Ram or whatever inevitably has a really big trailer sitting around their yard somewhere.

      It's not for me, but the only time I'm tempted by a truck it's usually a $1,000 farm beater.

      • PowerTryp

        There are alot of those out there and some of them in fantastic shape. Except I have too many projects as it is.

      • Scandinavian Flick

        I keep looking at trucks in the $3-4K range that have some minor upgrades for wheeling. Since I have no real purpose outside of that though, it keeps me from pulling the trigger…

        • pj134

          I'm trying to find my brother an M1008 before winter.

      • MVEilenstein

        Mine was a $1,000 trash hauler/dust gatherer in my friend's driveway. Best money I've ever spent on a vehicle.

        • PowerTryp

          Please do tell the whole story.

          • MVEilenstein

            Well, it's pretty simple, really; I needed another vehicle last fall, but I wanted a truck. My friend had just picked up an 07 F-150 FX2 Supercrew, and wanted to sell his 92 F-150 XLT. He makes pretty good money, and it needed a little bit of work, so he sold it to me for a good price. It's 4-wheel drive, 5-speed, 302, 33" tires with a ton of tread left on them, and the body is in really good shape. I love driving it, and I love hauling with it. I need to find an excuse to take it off-roading!

            • PowerTryp

              Excellent deal, the 5.0L was a superb engine and the drivetrain was well sorted in that production run. Sounds like you go a hell of a truck at a great price.

    • PowerTryp

      I can answer that one for you living in truck central Canada and working at a Ford dealer.

      These kinds of trucks are mainly sold for image and to the people who want to haul a holiday trailer in comfort although there are alot of people who buy a really expensive truck and use them for work like welders. Trucks used to be a workhorse vehicle but society has lost their objectivity with them and have traded the large luxury car for an even larger luxury truck.

      That said while you may see a bunch of these expensive ones running around the real bread and butter comes from fleet sales where the luxury options just arn't even looked at.

      • Scandinavian Flick

        That makes sense. I'm just surprised that that particular market is substantial enough to keep them going in the current direction. I know there are a few exceptions with more stripped out base models, but the glut of luxury trucks seems to exceed what I would expect to be the market.

    • This doesn't precisely answer your question, but my brother-in-law engages in what I can only call recreational scrap-metal hauling. He's been retired for a number of years now, but this hobby brings in a few extra bucks and (primarily, I believe) gives him an opportunity and excuse to poke through stuff that people are throwing away.

      Every four or five years he trades in his red, full-sized Ford pickup for a brand-new red, full-sized Ford pickup. He drives it home and immediately (and vigorously) throws a bunch of rusty chunks of scrap into the bed to break it in, so he doesn't later hesitate to scratch it. Then he starts hauling stuff.

      Their only other vehicles are a '32 Ford roadster on a Model A frame, a '66 Mustang GT fastback, and a '67 Mustang coupe, so we don't give them too much grief over having a "new" truck.

      • Scandinavian Flick

        Actually that does answer my question. In this case, it's someone who likely uses it as a comfortable daily driver, but also has uses for a truck.

        Nice fleet, by the way. Clearly a Ford guy.

        • It doesn't quite address the entire question, in that he isn't keen on expensive options or aftermarket stuff, unless you want to count the homemade engine hoist that he always transfers and bolts to the bed of the new rig.

          He and his wife (my sister) are specifically red Ford folk. All of them are red. The Mustangs are hers.

      • That sounds like what I did when I replaced my 1988 Ford F-150 last year with a new 2011 Silverado WT. I plan on putting in a spray in bed liner. (My dad sells them, among many other auto body supplies.), the first step for that is to scuff the bed up. What better way than a few loads of scrap metal and a bunch of limbs from the yard! 19 months later and I still don't have the bed liner sprayed in.

      • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

        Wait you got married? That was a fast engagement. Congrats! But why are you still doing the dishes then?

        • Thanks! I got married last month. This in-law is courtesy of my sister, however.

          As for the dishes, my cooking is just awful. The current division of labor is better for all concerned.

  • Yeah, I can be a bro straight from the factory, thanks.

    <img src=";

  • MVEilenstein

    Let's keep it that way.

  • Scandinavian Flick

    It's kinda funny though, since judging by what I do drive, I'm not exactly of the practical mind set. Just for certain things, I suppose. Heck, that may actually make me a bit of a hypocrite, but it's not that I'm judging people for buying a new luxury truck. I'm just trying to wrap my mind around the reasoning and better understand the market direction. I now understand who buys them, but am still surprised there are enough of those people to justify the market saturation.

    • Most Soccer-Dads daily drive these to the office, then tow the family boat/trailer/camper with them on the weekends.

      Basically Luxury Trucks are for part-time truck use. I could have a nice Lincoln in the driveway and a beater truck but then parking becomes an issue. With my luxury truck, I get both.

      Full Disclosure: I own/drive a F150 STX 4×4, which is one trim level higher than W/T.

  • BobWellington

    Can't stand seeing these trucks that don't get off roaded, it's a travesty.

  • Van_Sarockin

    That's a big hat for a goat roper.

  • Felix A. Jimenez

    what is your email or number? I'm interested..

  • Chris

    I'm interested too email or number would be nice

  • Gaines

    Yall are a bunch of whining regulation loving, hate what you don't have , tool-bags and Ninnies!!!

  • bru

    Is the truck still for sale and where too go too for information?

  • Matt Dunn

    I'll trade u a 2011 chev everything stock mint condition with 45 000 km , let me know if u can work something out. ?

  • Wud Legerity

    Why would you want to off-road in a truck like this? Off-roading destroys vehicles no matter how well built. I watch people destroy $150,000 rock bouncers all the time here in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. The guys that take part in serious off-roading have a trail rig and typically daily drive trucks like this for 6 months then sell them and get new ones. It was most likely his daily driver. He just flips them quick so they don't depreciate before he gets upside down in the cost. If you expect someone to take that tundra off-road…. Then your way outta of your depth. It's smells like jealousy in here.

  • Fantastic website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any community forums that
    cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of
    online community where I can get back from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!

  • Hi there. Only wanted to question a quick question. I am assembling my own blog site along with would
    want to realize in which you still have ones topic?
    Was that totally free? Or perhaps seemed to be that paid out?
    I can not manage to uncover anything at all as well as this,
    consequently with any luck , you possibly can well then, i’ll know.
    Thanks. PS, my sorry. English seriously isn’t my 1st terminology.

  • chris

    Despite everything y'all are saying about this truck I think it's a bad ass piece of machinery and would love to buy it. That's if I had the money. And then I would absolutely take it off road since that's what it was built for to begin with.
