Sorry bout the bad pic guys. the only time i had a good shot was while i was fumbling for the camera and talking on the cel phone at the same time. i couldnt even finish my sentence. then he was way ahead, then way behind. then we lost him. oh well, at least i got that pic.

i think i see somewhat of a drive shaft there.

Those mud flaps on that truck look like door mats. I wonder if that ford is bigger or if this one is.

It looks like one I've seen here around Bakersfield. Trenz is located here and I think one of the guys that works there had all the contacts he needed to build the 'Sterling Superduty'. I call it that because Ford sold off there Medium/Heavy duty truck division to Frieghtliner, of which they called Sterling trucks. Basically Big Rigs. Anyways I've seen an F550 running around with a Sterling logo on the grill instead of a Ford logo. Take care guys, and yes it's a big ford...

If im not mistaken, the sterling F550's had 2-1/2 ton axles. The ones on this truck are not 2.5 tons, also the Transfer case on those F-550's hang down quite a bit from what I can remember, not like a normal t-case.

Hello All,
If I'm not mistaken, 150=1/2 ton, 250=3/4 ton,350=1 ton,450=2 ton and 550= 2 1/2ton.If thats the case, wouldn't all 550's have 2.5 ton axles? I don't know, thats why I'm asking. I would also assume this translates towards the Dodges and Chevey's by adding a "0", such as a Ram 1500=1/2 ton...
Thanks in advance.
Joe

Hehe, people look at them... I guess they have eye appeal. I am however hesitant of doing anything that large. I actually use my truck and haul stuff in it all the time. I couldn't imagine lifting stuff and putting it in the bed... Heck a fork lift driver couldn't even see what he was doing while putting a skid in or out... lol, imagine if that thing was loaded too, that rear would sink, and it would look like it has hydros... I am with you on this one, people who do this to trucks, don't need a truck, they need monster truck.

Hey Rawkon, What side of the road were you driving on? I see the double yellow on your right. Passing a little traffic to get to Pismo a little faster.

Hey Rawkon. I know that guy in the Ford. He's a buddy of mine, but for safty reasons, I can't post his name. He pulled my 2X4 Ford Explorer back up a hill in the middle of the Fire Trails of La Habra Hts. That was a hell of a time. I now know never to go off-roading by myself.
