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.
