Alan Ampudia is back with his latest off-road truck action film -and Toyo Tires advertisement- in AMPD 2. This time he’s shredding a mix of natural and man-made terrain in Cabo and Ensanada. He’s also got Lil Jon running shotgun once again.

Let’s first get right to the action.

AMPD 2: 900-hp Pro 2 Race Truck Takes on Cabo

A reprisal of last year’s AMPD (which gained a lot of momentum thanks to rap legend Lil Jon’s appearance riding shotgun), AMPD 2 puts Ampudia’s 900-hp Pro 2 Ford F-150 Raptor and Toyo’s Open Country A/T III tires on furious display.

Toyo Tires released the Open Country A/T III model in mid-2020, and they’ve since become popular among all sorts of adventure junkies. The Open Country A/T III unites several all-terrain-intelligent innovations that heed the call of off-roaders, rock crawlers, mudders, and desert fiends alike.

And if there was any doubt about their performance, just watch the kind of stunts Ampudia pulls on and off the streets of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in this second entry to Toyo’s AMPD series. The A/T III tires answer monster jumps and incomprehensible drifting with exceptional precision, impact handling, and toughness.

Toyo Open Country A/T III Tires

According to Toyo, the Open Country A/T III include the following features:

  • Grippier, quieter, and more durable tread construction
  • 3D multi-wave sipes and increased lateral grooves
  • Stone-ejecting blocks
  • Staggered shower lugs
  • Improved void-area distribution

Toyo offers the A/T III in Flotation, LT Metric, and P/Euro-Metric styles for wheels sized from 14 to 22 inches. The warranty’s good up to 65,000 miles for P/Euro-Metric tires or up to 50,000 for Flotation and LTs. And the company provides buyers with a 500-mile/45-day test-drive window.

Alan Ampudia

Alan Ampudia is a second-generation desert racer and a specialist in the field. In 2019, Ampudia and his younger brother Aaron drove his custom Ford F-150 Raptor bodied trophy truck to a historic win at the prestigious SCORE Baja 1000 — churning out a hellacious 800.5-mile course in a little over 16 hours and 10 minutes.

Ampudia’s Trophy Truck sported Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires -the “R” is for “race.” In the short but very (and I mean very) sweet AMPD 2 film, Ampudia brings back his hot-pink livery and Raptor body, along with some Toyo shoes -this time the Toyo Open Country A/T III- on a Pro 2 truck.
