FLYING THE FLAG
that provides a full 12 inches of lift and features RIZE Industries components, Atlas rear spring packs, Fox shocks and Eibach front coils. Custom driveshafts and CVS eliminated the need to clock the transfer case, which would have caused issues with the way the truck was 4-linked. An SDP custom adjustable drag link, WC Motorsports track bar and dual 2.0 Fox steering stabilizers with SDP mounts fully upgrade the steering system on this big truck.
The look and functionality is kept clean with a variety of high quality mods. An Extang Revolution bed cover and Ford bed mat keep the rear of the truck tidy. The transmission temps are kept down with a Maghytec trans pan, while an Edge Insight CTS2 handles all monitoring of the vital systems. The unique 6.7L engine note resonates through a 5-inch stainless Magnaflow exhaust with a 6-inch axle turndown tip under the bed. Brake pedal response is improved through the use of custom flex brake lines routed to each caliper.
Ergonomics and actual use of this truck also played a role in the modifications. In order to let folks get up into this 12-inch-lifted monster Amp Research automatic powered drop-down running boards were installed. All factory safety features are also retained, as the front Fusion bumper has a center screen area that’s specifically designed to allow the forward-facing radar module for the adaptive cruise control to function properly. The rear Fusion bumper is designed to incorporate the factory backup sensors.
This massive SDP F-450 build did its job at SEMA 2017 and turned a lot of heads. You can expect to see the stars and stripes flying proudly on this rig at events all over the country in 2018. While it looks amazing here in photos, it is sure to impress even more in person. What will we see next from the team at Street Diesel Performance?
Keeping an eye on engine vitals is quick and easy thanks to a CTS2 from Edge Products.
An intake from S&B makes sure the 6.7L gets all the clean, fresh air it needs.
