Tundra Midnight Rider Tailgater by Brooks & Dunn


Toyota’s Midnight Rider Tundra Tailgater is a tribute to the legendary country music band Brooks & Dunn and helps celebrates the music duo’s upcoming 2010 farewell tour.

Other features include a 42-inch LCD TV (Sharp is used in the picture) and sound system by Kicker which includes dual sub woofers and separate amp, four two-way speakers/tweeters and a separate equalizer and control unit.
