Ford Super Crew Build Final
Ford Super Duty Project Build:The Last Chapter
Putting the finishing touches on our big Ford Crew Cab 4×4 sweepstakes truck
By Bruce W. Smith
Over the past nine months, we’ve been slowly changing the look and functionality of our 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab 4×4 from an ordinary, vanilla-white work truck into a multi-function, go-anywhere contractor’s pickup.
It has been upfitted with a mild suspension lift and taller, more-aggressive tires for more ground clearance and better traction.
We added a heavy-duty front bumper and big hydraulic winch for better front-end protection and self-recovery muscle.
We added toolboxes, a bigger fuel tank and a refuel tank for greater self-sufficiency and long-range travel.
Then we equipped it with an array of emergency lights, a gooseneck and several different types of receiver hitches so it could handle any trailer-towing duties.
Then we filled the bed with a skid containing a generator, welder, air compressor and oil-changing system so light-duty field service/repair work could be handled should the need arise.
Like we said at the outset of the build back in April, our goal with Project Super Crew was to build a pickup for those who service oil and gas wells, run survey crews, build roads or do site-prep work where a normal day at the office is driving off-pavement over difficult terrain.
