So you think a normal truck is wimpy, you need to tow houses and routinely carry elephants in the bed? You're probably into super-manly "dually" trucks. However, Toyota doesn't want your business just yet.
"Dually" is a made-up word that refers to a pickup with dual rear wheels on each side. These things make every normal F-150 and Silverado seem unworthy and are equipped for big jobs.

Fitted with heavy-duty brakes, stronger shocks, and springs, and sometimes improved axles as well. The types of pulling jobs they do also require duallies to pack powerful and relatively reliable engines.

Toyota is a decently strong player in the truck market, and it does have some decent engines. However, the Japanese car company doesn't offer anything above the Tundra. A few days ago, we looked at the TRD Pro model, doing some drag racing against a Silverado. And although it lost, we praised this antique Tundra model for looking cool and sounding great with the TRD exhaust.

Taking things a step further, rendering expert wb.artist20 has blown out the Tundra into a full-sized load-lugger. Enter the completely fictional Tundra TRD Dually. To make the look happen, the artist expanded the grille a little, changed up the bumpers, and obviously upgraded the wheels.

Most duallies have chrome wheels, but this keeps the black TRD alloys with some red caps and matching nuts. The twin wheels at the back obviously require extended arches too. As you probably know, the Tundra is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 that makes decent power for its class. The ancient six-speed auto might work out well in the reliability department.

However, the segment is filled with much more impressive monsters. For $43,000, Ford sells you the F-350 Super Duty with the 6.7L turbocharged engine, capable of producing 440 hp. If you want a really luxurious dually, we suggest the GMC Sierra 3500HD Denali, starting from $57,000. It's littered with chrome and packs the Duramax Turbo-Diesel 6.6L V8 with 445 HP and 910 lb-ft of torque.
