If the Ford F150 = Cool, then the Ford F150 Raptor = Super Cool. So by that thought process the new Super Duty with it's monster power and payload takes cool to a whole new level with the limited edition Shelby F250 Super Baja, bringing together the strength and offroad prowess into a production truck you can drive right off the dealer lot.

Dreamed up by the team at Tuscany Motor Company in partnership with Shelby America, this ultra capable Super Duty brings performance and capability to the 3/4-ton truck market. Boasting a relatively unmodified 6.7L Power Stroke putting out 475hp/1050tq. The real magic is underneath the truck with a BDS 4" radius arm system with FOX 2.5 factory race series coilovers and shocks to help take control of the terrain. Along with the extra altitude to clear the 37" BFG KM3s, this suspension package offers DSC (dual speed compression) adjustable remote reservoir coilovers and remote reservoir shocks to allow these shocks to run cool when your bombing through the Baja peninsula.

Up front a custom set of ADD bumpers were fitted sporting the Shelby nameplate along with an assortment of LEDs to light up the trail. Additionally colormatched smooth bulge fender flares, fender vents, a functional ram air hood, and a custom decal package was added to give this truck its race inspired Baja appearance. The sides feature custom rock sliders that gain you access to the plush leather interior with custom embroidery, carbon fiber trim and custom gauge cluster. Stepping back outside in the bed you'll find a chase rack sporting (2) fullsize spares along with some additional lighting that carries through to the matching rear bumper.

All in all this is on bad ass Super Duty you can buy right off the lot and have a blast with whether that's out on the trail or just cruising around town. Either way this truck is backed with an unbeatable warranty. For more on the Shelby F250 Super Baja head to Tuscany Motors.

What started about a decade ago as an opportunity to break the norm of taking Jeeps out on the trails for one day during Easter Jeep Safari in Moab has grown and evolved into a full week of trail riding as more than a hundred super cool rides converge on the town to run the big boys. From tow rigs and classic K5 to purpose built bobbed and dovetailed square bodies, exocaged RAMs and more, this eccentric group hit the red rocks of Moab ready for a good time.

BDS Suspension has been the official suspension of the Fullsize Invasion or at least participating in to since the beginning. Typically unhooking our tow rig and bringing it out on the trails to show what our off-the-shelf lifted trucks can do. This year was we followed suit bringing our 2012 Ford Super Duty, the General out on the trail. In addition, BDS sponsored athlete Kevin Stearns was out in Moab for the Ultra4 Beatdown at Area BFE and decided to bring his #11 4400-car out on the trail to put on a show. It was a sight to see these polar opposites out on the trail together, but also spoke to the diversity in the group that attends the Fullsize Invasion. Other sponsors for the event include Offraod Power Products, Pivotal Manufacturing, Warn, Raceline Wheels, AffordableBender.com, Offroad Design, Gordon Custom Fabrication, Reckless Wrench, Corbeau Seats, Mercenary Offroad, F Garage, XS Power Batteries, and Devil Mountain Diesel.

The 2020 Schedule of trail rides for the most part was the week prior to the traditional Easter Jeep Safari event and had rides on Porcupine Rim, Cliffhanger, 3D Pickle, Steel Bender, and Poison Spider Mesa. The week had its fair share of body damage, trail repairs and broken drivetrain, but smiles all around as the group came together to break the COVID norm and hit the trail together for some rock therapy. Great job by Jerrod Jones and Dave Hellman with putting together a great Fullsize Invasion once again!

Built over the course of about 2.5 months by the team at BDS Suspension, completed overhaulled this once run of the mill Super Duty into a capable overlander packed with all the right gear from the 6.7L Powerstroke diesel, plush leather interior, a custom service box, recovery gear, a BDS 4" lift kit and massive 40" tires.

If you want to find out more about Project Go Beyond, how it was built, where its been, etc then you're in luck. We've got the full build coverage complete with photos and videos right here on the BDS Blog.

The crew from BDS joined the party out in Moab, UT for the hybrid Easter Jeep Safari (EJS) and Dixie Offroad Expo for a week of trail riding, vendor show, and other activities. This year was understandably a little different. Looking back to last year EJS was the first major event to get cancelled in the wake of the early 2020 pandemic chaos. What seemed at the time like an overreaction was just a sign of what was to come with most tradeshows and other events getting cancelled throughout the year.

A year later and it felt so good to get back out on the red rocks, to see friends and hit the trails. Planning went a bit sideways about 2 months before the show with Grand County deciding not to allow the EJS vendor show to happen before a back and forth, on and off uncertainty leading up to Dixie Offroad stepping up to host a vendor show at their shop just outside of the county limits. In a short amount of a vendor show was organized where to host more than 80 vendors to include BDS, JKS, FOX, Ford (Bronco) and Jeep to show off cool products, talk to customers, give test drives and more. Turnout was good this year especially with the timeframe to plan it all out. BDS set up alongside FOX and JKS showing off some Project Go Beyond our 2020 Super Duty Overlander and the #11 Ultra4 #4400class car of Kevin Stearns.

Around town there was plenty of see and do. The town of Moab was buzzing as thousands made there way in to enjoy the scenery, the activities and give the local economy a little tourism boost. As always Jeep was set up showing off several concept vehicles with a mix of Wrangler JL, Gladiator JT and other models on display. As to be expected the Wrangler 392 was in the spotlight, as was the 4xe hybrid, a fully electric JL and even the EcoDiesel powerplant used in some of the other concepts.

On the other side of town team Bronco was out in force with several Bronco and Bronco Sports available for on/off-road test drives along with several cool build Broncos to check out. BDS has a number of kits in the works for these new Broncos so it was great to see how well they were all received at this "Jeep" show.

Throughout the week, the BDS crew made it out on the trail running some of our favorites Poison Spider Mesa, Cliffhanger, Top of the World, Hell's Revenge, among others. Check out our separate coverage from the Fullsize Invasion here.
