West Coast Customs and Ox Kargola Build the OX-Tundra
text size: A- A+
The Ox-Tundra is the creation of Ryan Friedlinghaus, owner and CEO of West Coast Customs, and General Tire athlete, Jeff "OX" Kargola. WCC took a 2010 Toyota Tundra and transformed it into the ultimate off-road survival machine for the Baja 1000.
"Ox wanted to make his truck fully functional and be able to handle all the obstacles for being out in the desert as a chase vehicle. He also wanted to make it 'dark' and 'mean' to fit with the Metal Mulisha style," said Friedlinghaus.
The Ox-Tundra benefits from a custom-roof rack to hold a spare tire and extra gas. At the front of the truck the team has fitted a custom bumper with a winch attached and a few more lights. Tool boxes and shower are featured in the back. Interior highlights include leather seats with DVD players in the headrests, a new leather headliner with an additional DVD screen, a satellite phone and bumpin' sound system. A one-of-a-kind gray camo paint job has been applied, while the vehicle sits on aggressive General Grabber tires.
Friedlinghaus and his shop have been doing exclusive custom builds for the MTV show Pimp My Ride, TLC's Street Customs, Street Customs Berlin. Jeff "Ox" Kargola, best known as a Freestyle MX rider, currently rides for Boost Mobile, Metal Mulisha, Monster Energy, Osiris Shoes, General Tire, Desert Assassins and Method Wheels.
