Toyota and Ivan “Ironman” Stewart have been partners since the 1980s, but that relationship reaches a new level with the 2008 Toyota Tundra Ivan “Ironman” Stewart Signature Series. The Ironman trucks come in three stages and produce up to 504 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.
You might expect the trucks to be desert racers right out of the showroom, but they aren’t. These trucks are designed for mild to moderate off-roading, yet are easy to live with for daily driving. Suspension modifications are minimal, but the Bilstein shocks soak up imperfections in the road and trail with aplomb and don’t lift the vehicle at all. Many changes are cosmetic, but they work well: the Ironman Tundras look aggressive, but tasteful.
If you move up to the Stage 3 package, things get a little more functional. The TRD supercharger adds a ton of power to the stock 5.7-liter V-8 (504 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque in all) and the TRD brake package keeps that power in check. Hella headlights improve visibility at night and auxiliary Hella lights are available as well. The cost of the Stage 3 kit is expected to be in the $20,000 range.
These limited edition trucks will be available from select Toyota dealers starting August 1. The majority of these dealers are in Southern California, but the availability could increase if demand warrants it.
