Dumont creates ultimate ski-mobile, part of Toyota “Dream Build Challenge”

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

Simon Dumont and Oakley have teamed up with Toyota to build one heck of a badass ski-mobile—part of Toyota’s “Dream Build Challenge.” Top athletes representing an array of action sports have also built their own custom vehicles, and the various masterpieces are now pitted against each other, with public voting ultimately determining a winner. The fan favorite earns not only the coveted bragging rights, but also the Dream Build Challenge Cup, and a special unveiling at the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas on November 5.

A video showcasing the build can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/poWSoy5qOf4. The challenge website is http://www.toyota.com/dreambuilds/, and it is there you can support Dumont and cast your vote.

Features of Dumont’s whip include:

- Electronically actuated custom roof ski rack
- iPad media stations in the front and rear seats control roof ski rack, doors, windows and mechanized steps
- Rear workstation (in the trunk) with boot dryer, glove dryer, gear hangers, helmet and goggle mounts, swing out Keurig Coffee Maker and full barbecue grill
- Ultra Motorsports Xtreme Race Wheels with 35″ BFG Mud Terrain Tires; high performance ICON Vehicle Dynamics Stage 4 suspension and 2″ lift kit with billet trailing arms
- Customized Oakley/Simon Dumont Signature Series seat upholstery, door panels, headliner and rear bulkhead
- One-of-a-kind front bumper – with KC Hilites LED cubes for optimal visibility in harsh conditions
- Sound system featuring Kicker amplifiers and sub woofers, along with JBL speakers
