The Accessory Dream Guide Issue 5
It makes it easier to prep for overland trips.” He was so impressed with the pulley system that he posted a photo of it on his Instagram page, @formanpilkington. You can also find many photos of his co-pilot, a silver Labrador retriever, Dany, there too. Every person who knows and loves vehicles can completely relate to Ross’ other reason for knowing he found his dream ride in his Tundra: “When I would rather drive the truck than my Jaguar XFR.” That in itself could be an ad for Toyota.
When Ross was asked which vehicle he admired, he an- swered: “I’m a Raptor fan. It is a more off-road version of the TRD Pro. It has a slightly larger ride with nice finishes.” “My last truck was a 2007 Ram Mega Cab with a 9” lift on 38’s, custom paint and interior, bumpers, winch and much more. It was just too big for city driving.” Anyone who has driven in Vancouver recently knows what Ross means by city driving. Ross contin- ues his vehicle list: “I sold my 2005 Chrysler 300C with a rebuilt supercharged motor with over 750HP. I traded it for a Jaguar
XFR which has less HP, but it’s a nicer finish and still has a supercharged V8.” He adds: “The reason I have not done a lift on the truck is that I need to be able to park it underground for my work. I only have an inch to spare as it is. Part of me really wants to do the Pro Comp Long Arm Kit, but that would change the height too much. I can walk my dirt bike up the ramp and into the box, which is a nice benefit. Being the TRD Pro, the suspension is soft on the windy highways, but when you get off road it sucks up the bumps very well.”
