    its a bad a*$ truck. I'm not sure if it is the same one in 4wheeler, but that one is sweet too (the suspension looks different) Not sure it would be so good on trails. It is still a sweet engineering piece.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Seen it. Pretty impressive for a F@rd. Not really a whole lot of it is ford anymore anyway. Engine is a 300hp Cat makin over 700ft-lbs torque. Tranny is Allison, transfer and axles are rockwell. Hope he never gets a flat, though. It doesn't look like he carries a spare, and I wouldn't want to try to wrestle those wheels off the axle by myself.

    The motor and tranny are stock. Once you move up to the 650 you can get a Cat or a Cummins. Pretty cool truck, too bad the t-case hangs down lower than a stock F150's.

    That is a very cool rig. The Four Wheeler mag says he built it himself, but what are all those dudes in the main picture doing? It kind of made me think that maybe daddy had someone build it for him or something. As I read the article, I just kept thinking to myself, "Where in the heck to these guys get all this friggin' money?!!!!" I just got a friggin' MAACO paint job fer chrissakes!!!!!

    I saw that in 4 Wheeler magazine, the transfercase is hanging down really scary. I think he could have got away with a little more driveshaft angle and moved the case up.

    If I remeber correctly, the magazine article said that the base truck cost around $60,000.....that's just a base cab chassis F-650 (no bed, no four wheel drive, no custom suspension). I'd bet the tires and wheels were at least a couple grand a piece.

    It's a nice rig, but the rims look a bit too big for the tires IMO. The coolest part about that thing is the pirate flag! where can I get one? [​IMG]

    The tcase is not stock, it's a Rockwell something or other he bolted up.
    Am I the only one who thinks the f650 body is ugly as sin? Now, anyoneone remember the f550 that Four Wheeler or somebody had? It was cab chassis, they fabbed up a big camper whre the bed goes and put 40" tires on it. Dana 60/Dana135 and the obligatory Powerstroke. Now that's a cool truck.

    Most of the gear on it is stock stuff. The engine, the rear axle, all that stuff. They just ditched the front IFS(?) and put in an axle identical to the rear. The Case hanging down isn't a big deal I wouldnt think. Seeing as the tires are 48" that means the Tcase has AT LEAST 2 feet of clearance since its higher than the center of the wheels. I personally dig the look of the F650. I like the Super Duty fords, just not the regular ones. Still like the new Chev's better though.

    "Seeing as the tires are 48" that means the Tcase has AT LEAST 2 feet of clearance since its higher than the center of the wheels." Not necessarily. You have to figure in the distance from the t-case output centerline to the bottom of the t-case, and the distance from the axle centerline to the pinion yoke.

    "They just ditched the front IFS(?)" Trucks this size generally have a drop beam axle (solid) and leaf springs.
