Bull­dog LED light­ing can be found through­out the build, with four 6-inch bars in the front bumper, two 6-inch bars in the rear bumper and a 40-inch bar be­hind the RBP grille in­sert. Spy­der Auto head­lights and tail­lights fin­ish off the light­ing pack­age.

Handy for both work tasks and off-road ad­ven­tures a Rugged Ridge 9K winch is in­stalled in the front bumper. It is fin­ished off with syn­thetic line and a Fac­tor 55 Prolink thim­ble for safe, con­sis­tent closed-sys­tem winch­ing.

Fin­ish­ing Touches

Be­cause Pa­tience spends so much time in his truck, it was im­por­tant to re­fresh the in­te­rior with an up­grade pack­age. Road­wire bur­gundy and black two-tone leather cov­ers all the in­te­rior seat­ing and cen­ter con­sole. A full Pi­o­neer DVD en­ter­tain­ment/au­dio sys­tem keeps the tunes rock­ing and videos play­ing on those long road trips through the head­rest-mounted TVS.

To fin­ish off the en­tire build Pa­tience just had to add a lit­tle bit of fun in the form of Kleinn train horns. Pa­tience says he had to do it “be­cause all the cool kids are do­ing it!”

Work, Love & Com­pas­sion

This is a work truck through and through, and ev­ery once in a while gets cleaned up for dis­play at events. Pa­tience and Ti­tan have al­ways ap­proached their builds with a some­what con­ser­va­tive view, as they are built to be used to their full po­ten­tial. While they look good do­ing work, you won’t find any pur­ple pow­der­coated axles on a Ti­tan build.

James Pa­tience’s F-350 build not only works hard and looks good—it also does great things for qual­ity causes along the way. This truck brings a new high stan­dard to the SEMA build con­cept, and is sure to see a lot more work and do a lot more good in its work­ing life­time.

Re­sid­ing where the spare tire used to is a 30-gal­lon Ti­tan Tank; two other 50-gal­lon tanks are also on board, giv­ing the F-350 130 gal­lons of fuel.
