There’s a grand opening, then there’s a door buster of a grand opening. And if you’re Tiger Automotive you do both—literally.
The Canadian automotive accessory retailer, which is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, had quite a bit of fanfare around its new store opening, as seen in the video above. Local news crews came out, and the mayor of Saskatoon, a city of over 200,000 people, helped open the store. And when I say “open the store,” I mean he ripped the door open using a Toyota Tundra wearing a set of Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares. Talk about a grand opening!
And whether you live in Saskatoon, Sydney, St. Louis, or someplace else, you can use our dealer locator to find a Bushwacker dealer near you or find an online retailer. Just be sure to leave their doors intact.

There were a lot of expectations that came with Toyota’s new TRD Pro series of trucks and SUV’s. The question on everbody’s mind was how far would Toyota take the concept, and would it be their answer to the unrivaled Ford Raptor?
Today we got our first taste of the Toyota TRD Pro series at the Chicago Auto Show. The Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner all received the TRD Pro trim line, which at first glance looks great, but what does the package include? Continue reading
It seems as if the automotive world is buzzing about the slew of diesel options coming to the market. The new Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, and RAM 1500 have all been given the VM Motori 3.0L EcoDiesel. Nissan has partnered with Cummins to release a 5.0L diesel option for the next generation Titan. Now Chevrolet has thrown its hat into the ring with the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, which will offer a Duramax 2.8L I-4 turbodiesel. Don’t forget the international outliers like the Amarok TDI, and Ranger T6 Duratorq.
It seems as if all the big names are making their moves with diesel, and rightfully so with looming EPA regulations that will require auto manufacturers to provide 54.5 MPG vehicles by the 2025 model year. But where does Toyota stand with diesel technology? Aside from an ’07 Tundra dually concept that featured an 8.0L Hino engine, Toyota hasn’t made any big moves with diesel.
That doesn’t mean they’re not considering some interesting options. In a recent interview with Bloomsberg, Toyota CEO Kazua Ohara noted that it’ll take time to pinpoint exactly what consumers want with a full sized truck like the Tundra. Unfortunately the more time Toyota takes, the more they’ll have to catch up. That is unless they come out with a revolutionary new engine, which some have speculated will be a hybrid diesel engine.

The 2014 Toyota Tundra is hitting dealerships now, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on a 1794 edition to shoot our Pocket and “OE” flares with. The ’14 Tundra Pocket Style Flare will offer 2″ of coverage, and the “OE” will provide 1″. Both flares’ release date is still TBD.
My first impression of the ’14 Tundra (besides the chrome) was that it felt crafted and refined. The interior oozed luxury with its soft brown leather seats, wood trim, and moon roof. While the bed opted for functionality with adjustable tie downs, and a floating tail gate. Continue reading
In the face of stiff competition from Ford, Dodge, and Chevrolet, Toyota unveiled their redesigned 2014 Toyota Tundra at the Chicago Auto Show on February 7th. It seems as if Toyota is confident in their engine and powertrain since most of the redesign is cosmetic. There was no mention of dually or diesel options, nor details about the TRD package.
