Brooks & Dunn 2009 Midnight Rider Tundra Tailgater

The concept for this one-of-a-kind Midnight Rider Tundra Tailgater by Brooks & Dunn was developed through Toyota’s partnership with Brooks & Dunn. Inspired by the music duo’s large truck-devoted fan base, Toyota wanted to push the boundaries of bed utility and capture the imagery of the truck trucker. Built by The B.A.D. Company, the customized Toyota Tundra CrewMax Limited full-size 4×2 V8 pickup was a perfect fit for the ultimate tailgating vehicle.

The exterior is accented by custom western-engraved silver door handles, a front grille adorned with a chrome Brooks & Dunn logo steer skull, a chrome-accented steer skull tailgate handle, and a hand-tooled black saddle leather-trim tonneau cover surrounded with custom Brooks & Dunn silver conchos, all created by internationally acclaimed silversmith, artist and horseman, Clint Mortenson of Mortenson Silver & Saddles.

The interior (not shown) is a hand-tooled silver cupholder faceplate and custom saddle horn shift knob highlighted with a silver cap, as well as custom hand-tooled silver license plate frames also created by Clint.

Just wanted to drop a note to say Mahalo and Aloha for getting this deal done. These conchos are so nice. I can't even describe my face when I opened the box today. They are just DROP DEAD GEORGEOUS ! ! ! !
Thank you so much for including the wood screws----I was not even thinking about how I was going to change them out when they get here. You made it so easy for us.
I would like everyone to know how great you folks were to deal with and how wonderful your conchos are.
Mahalo and Aloha,

My son won the Top Hand Buckle at NRS Beginners Team Roping clinic last week. I would like to express what a beautiful and superior craftsmanship is in this buckle. Brendan is very proud of this buckle. He has won buckles in the past and by far is most proud of his Mortenson buckle.
Thank you,

Hi, Sorry it took me so long to contact you, But I been looking for the words to say. I love the saddle and it fits my horse and you did a excellent job on the rigging over rides. Your communication through emails are the best!! If I could give you 110% on feed back I'd sure do it. You are over and beyond any other seller I bought from and you are the only seller that I have on my top seller ist. When I get some more money saved up I'm going to contact you to buy my son a saddle. Thank You so much; It has been a joy to buy from you!!! - Marti
