The 2022 Tundra has already proven itself to be one of the best performing, best looking, and best customizable pickups on the market. Okay… While some of those may be subjective, with 94,429 Tundras being sold in 2022 according to CarFigures, its popularity is undeniable.
But with that many on the road, you’re bound to see some of the same interiors over and over again. It’s time to change that and make your Tundra your own. While we have focused on mods before, this one will be focusing just on the interior. After all… It’s what you see the most of.
All Weather Floor Mats ($179)
One of the first and last things you touch when you get in and out of your truck is your floor mats, and they will get dirty: snow, mud, dirt, sand, pet hair… They will collect everything. All weather floor mats make cleaning a breeze. Being made from a durable rubber, in most cases you can just hose them off (outside of your ride) and be done. While you can get universal fitting ones, this kit is right from Toyota to ensure the best fit, AND they have “TUNDRA” right on them to ensure you know you’re getting Toyota quality as well.
TRD Pro Shift Knob ($220)
The TRD Pro Tundra is a tad pricey and harder to get since it was made in limited numbers. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of TRD Pro flair in your interior. This shift knob featured at The Yota Garage will add that flair. You don’t need any special tools; simply pull off the old one, and pop on the new one. You’ll instantly transform the feel of your “basic” Toyota into a more luxurious and sporty feeling one.
Steering Wheel ($800)
Sure, trucks are made for off-roading, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a sporty look with luxurious feel. While more pricey compared to other mods on this list, you have to hold onto your wheel your whole ride, so why not make it a good one? This one will replace your factory one, while retaining your original buttons and airbag to keep the cost down. Carbon fiber, perforated leather, and a 12 o'clock racing stripe will greet you each time you get in.
Center Console Organizer ($24)
The center console is great to throw things in, but you know how that goes… Add, add, add, and then you can’t find anything. Turn that void of no return into an organizational dream with this center console organizer. This will stop all of your small things from being lost in the blackhole of vanishment. These little things make a world of difference in your day to day driving, even if it’s a passive experience, and at $24, you can’t go wrong.
Center Console Overlay ($94)
Speaking of your center console, TUFSKINZ can dress up your center console area with this interior trim overlay that will stick right onto the trim. There are 14 different colors to choose from that range from factory paint colors to carbon fiber. CaliRaised also offers trim overlay for other locations of the interior as well, allowing you to transform the entirety of your interior in almost any color combination you want. Sport, luxury, off-road aggressiveness… Whatever style you want.
Seat Covers ($200 - $350)
Since we talked about floor mats protecting your floor, we have to talk about seat covers covering your seats. These can go from basic to almost new upholstery. There are universal ones that will literally only cover your seats, which while great for protection against muddy clothes, pet hair, and kids, they don’t offer much style. You can get all the way up to fancy leather ones with colored stitching that will form fit over your bland factory cloth seats. Not only do all of these change the look of your truck, but they also protect your seats, so when it’s time to sell, your seats look new, increasing your resale value. Prices vary depending on the style you go with.
Pedal Commander ($300)
If you’re tired of lag and slow acceleration, Pedal Commander is here to help. This simple product plugs into your gas pedal to help eliminate that nonsense. Gone are the days of a physical wire opening and closing your throttle when you press your pedal down. Now, everything is electronic. When you press your pedal down, it tells your Tundra’s computer that you’re doing so, and how hard you’re doing it. The problem is that it will still only open the throttle as fast as it’s programmed to. Pedal Commander will amplify the signal your foot provides to open the throttle faster.
Glove Box Letter Inerts ($28)
The TUNDRA letters on the glove box of your truck really help remind you what you’re driving in a subtle, yet effective way. However, why not show it off a bit more to make it really pop? This raised, six letter kit simply peels off and sticks right into the factory recesses. These come in 18 different colors including factory colors, carbon fiber, American flag, and more. It’s something anyone will notice the moment they step into your truck, truly allowing you to set your Tundra apart from the crowd.
Door Molle Panels ($79)
The door panels on the Tundra offer some storage space, but it’s probably the most lacking of all the storage locations on the truck. Victory 4x4 aims to address that with their custom molle panels. While they do require drilling some holes to mount, you’ll be glad you did. With these, you can maximize the storage space available, and keep loose items secure, but still reach them with easy access. With this kit, you get one for each front door.
Under Seat Storage ($180)
Expanding the storage capability inside your truck is always a good thing. Keeping things hidden and out of sight to keep a sleek and clean look? Even better. WeatherTech offers a rear, underseat storage solution for your 2022+ Tundra. There are four compartments to allow you keep what you need organized, but the lower interior walls allow you to stretch longer items across the top. Once you lower your rear seat, no one will ever notice your stuff is there.
Key Fob Case Replacement ($41)
While there may not be anything wrong with your current key fob, it’s sort of boring. Spice it up with this one from AJT Design. This kit will simply replace the case of your old one, so no programming is required. Just pop off the old one, and place the new one on with the included tools. There are nine colors to choose from so you can match your truck or your style. They look great, feel great, and set you apart from the crowd.
Center Console Molle Panels ($300)
While your center console has some decent storage, the sides do nothing. They are just there. This will turn the sides of the center console into perfect mounting solutions for anything you can think of. The bridge that goes across the two halves allows you to mount options like phones and iPads with the right gear. The high quality, American made steel will not get in the way of the shifter or anything else. Some drilling is required, so just make sure this is for you!
Center Console Safe ($260)
Another good way to make use of the large space in your center console is to add a safe. This is great to protect your valuables or perhaps a firearm if you need to leave your vehicle for some reason. This safe comes right from Toyota, so you can be certain that it will fit well and install seamlessly. While you will lose “normal” access to your console storage, if you need hidden security, this won’t matter to you.
Emergency Assistance Kit ($75)
While not exactly a mod, it’s always great to have some type of emergency kit in your vehicle. Yes, we all have a phone, these vehicles are intelligent, and so on, but you never know when you might need a bit more. This kit directly from Toyota features in a branded zipper pouch, a stainless steel multi tool, emergency blanket, flashlight, work gloves, automotive-grade hose tape, tire gauge, bungee cord, shop towel, tether strap, and jumper cables. This is all good to have, and it doesn’t take up much room.
Footwell Lighting ($60 - $110)
A massive change you can make to your interior is lighting. These kits, while more on the generic fitment side, from Diode Dynamics will make your interior pop! Kits like this are easy to install, and the RGBW lighting allows you to choose almost any color that you can think of to match your paint, style, or even current mood. Even if it’s just to impress yourself, why not go for it?
There is no reason your 2022+ Toyota Tundra needs to look like every other Tundra. There are so many ways to make it yours from interior to exterior. This is just one small list to help you get looking in the right direction and to give you some ideas. Make your truck yours! Don’t forget to check back on Empyr Off-Road for more parts and information for your Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, or 4Runner. Be safe, and mod on!
