kinda wierd... kinda cool

Ford 2008/2002 custom 6 door F-350 7.3L Powerstroke West Shore: Langford,Colwood,Metchosin,Highlands, Victoria







Built in 2008.

I acquired the truck with box damage as well as some some grill damage from going into the ditch.

My initial goals were to create a crew cab/ super cab made for the mountains that has the appearance of a model year 2008-10 Ford Super Duty and that's exactly how it turned out. The build is super clean and appears factory, in fact the rear doors work exactly like they would on any run of the mill super cab model! If desired you can still bolt the third row seat in place although I found it made more sense to put all the riding gear there (still plenty of room for six people inside).

Using electric actuators the rear box slides open from stock width to accommodate 2 full width sleds or Atv's. The ramp slides underneath the deck for quick and easy storage. When unloaded a simple push of a button returns the truck box to stock width.

In between the frame rails their is a drawer that opens from the bumper area (approx 5' long) that you can easily store 4+ full size bins for storage.


THE GOODS-

** Only 145000kms

**Custom extreme duty front bumper. The winch can be quickly removed and plugged into the back receiver.

**Piaa in bumper spotlights

** 6" BDS lift

** 20" Procomp wheels

** 4" dual exhaust

** Hypertext 70hp tuner plus transmission shift points are tuned for bigger tires

** Custom 7000$ entertainment system:
- In dash top of the line pioneer unit. Nav/DVD/XM satellite and iPod plug
- Rear DVD player (can play in sync or separate from front unit)
- JL audio amp
- 12 speakers including 2- 12" subs
- Wireless headphones system (3 units)

**Remote command start

** Fender flares

THE GRIPES:

** 7.3 uses the power steering for the brakes, at idle with brakes on steering effort is increased
** ICBC rebuild declaration. Thoroughly inspected and passed AFTER THE CONVERSION
** Tires are coming up for replacement
** Occasional hard start on real cold days

I like it... with our 6th kid due in about a month, building an extended crew cab has been on my mind a while... nice work and good job thinking outside the box on the custom bed mods. I would be interested in how you made that work. Any detail pictures of the bed slide mechanicals?

I am not in the market to buy but always interested in one-off custom stuff.

It's not mine, saw it posted on a local forum. Apparently it's really well built.
