GOOD THINGS COME

Diesel World - - Feature -

year the ride gen­er­ated $194,000, and the goal this year is to make a cool quar­ter mil­lion.

The Build

The fo­cus of this build was to look good while do­ing work—after all, this is a work truck first and fore­most. This 2012 Ford F-350 6.7L V8 diesel crew cab short bed 4x4 not only looks great, but can reg­u­larly be spot­ted tow­ing a 20,000-pound load or rid­ing on three wheels off-road along­side the rigs it tows.

Fuel

Since this is a Ti­tan Tanks show truck and long-dis­tance heavy ve­hi­cle/trailer hauler, it of course needed some se­ri­ous fuel stor­age so­lu­tions. The truck came with a stock 26-gal­lon tank, which was swapped out with a 50-gal­lon unit from Ti­tan. A 50-gal­lon Travel Trekker tank was in­stalled in the truck bed and a 30-gal­lon spare tire tank was also added. That’s a whop­ping 130 gal­lons of fuel ca­pac­ity on this Su­per Duty!

Lifted

The truck sports an 8-inch four-link lift from BDS. It fea­tures Fox 2.0 shocks, BDS rear leaf springs and a Fire­stone airbag kit with wire­less con­troller. At the touch of a but­ton on the Fire­stone Ride Rite re­mote, Pa­tience can ad­just the airbag pres­sure on the go,

Fu­sion Bumpers filled with Bull­dog LEDS pro­tect the front and rear ends, while a Rock Tamers mud flap set keeps the trailer and cargo safe from de­bris. Hitch of choice is a Gen-y 12-inch drop tor­sion hitch for ul­ti­mate ad­justa­bil­ity.
