In some ways Matthew Hedderson’s Dream Ride is more about the future than the past. His fondest memory of his 2012 Tundra is significant: “The day I took my baby boy home

from the hospital” in it. However, his plans tell the tale: “I plan to keep this truck for a very long time as I plan to change and build it with my son as he grows up.” Hedderson is building a Dream Ride Dynasty! His motto is “stock is boring” and we couldn’t agree more. Although he recommends that other drivers start with rims and tires, he didn’t buy his truck stock so he began differently: “The first thing I installed was a grille because I wanted to eliminate the chrome on the front and start colour matching black and white for my build.” He demonstrates his tech skills while describing his favourite accessory: “Headlights that I retrofitted with morimoto H1 6.0 projectors, gatlin gun shrouds, morimoto 35 watt 6000 k HIDs, RGB halos, RGB demon eyes, etched lens, klearz clear reflectors & TruLux black series switchbacks with custom black and white marble hydrodipping.”

The headlights became a real draw. They “really seemed to attract the most attention. People would compliment me about them and wanted pictures and info. I did the retrofit myself so that felt good to be recognized. A lot of people ask me to build them the exact set for their truck.” What he wants to add next is always changing. Right now, it’s a Magnuson Supercharger or “maybe even a 4”- 6” lift”. He also plans to “get more hydrodipping done on the inside and on his tail lights.” Matthew uses his Tundra for everything. Road trips, camping, off-roading, charity events and car/truck shows around the Edmonton area. Follow Matthew on Instagram for more photos of this beauty @tundramax.
