This rig, better known as The General, is our 2012 Ford Super Duty. This rig has been one of the hardest working trucks in our fleet. From towing our rigs, to wheeling the trails, to roaring through the town, this rig does the job, and it does it well.

We recently took this rig out on a fall colors trip around our home state of Michigan. We started off by driving from Coldwater MI, to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, where this rig ripped through the sand like it owned the place. This rig also pulled quite a few people out who got stuck. After a day at the dunes, we went up the coast do check out the tunnel of trees, the Mackinac Bridge, and then found a motel up in the UP (Michigan's Upper Peninsula) to rest before a fun day out on the trails.  The next day was filled with two tracks, mud, and some beautiful fall colors. This rig ripped through the trails with ease. Check out the full recap from the [Off] Road-Trip Adventure here.

As you can see, we are still enjoying every adventure with this rig, even after all these years. Where should we take it next?

The General - as it has been affectionately known - is a true workhorse of a truck. This rig has been a part of it all from multiple cross country tips hauling vehicles, wheeling out in Moab, and being cut apart to prototype new products to bring to market.  As one of the longest running trucks in the BDS fleet, this 2012 Ford F250 Super Duty has plenty of stories to tell from the use and abuse by our staff. From Michigan to Moab, this rig has wheeled its way through the country, hitting some of the top trails along the way. The General even spent some time in the rotation with our outside sales reps as a daily driver visiting customers in different parts of the country.  Check off to the side for the current configuration with this truck.
