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.

    How did you fit the 37s on the 4 inch lift? I am interested in having this setup on my 2012 250.

      Hey Tom, as long as you’re gign with a moderately spec’d wheel (in terms of width and backspacing) a 37″ tire fits comfortably on 4″ lift with only minor trimming. On our particular truck the front bumper was swapped out which opened up a ton more clearance (can also be achieved by trimming the factory bumper). For the backside of the front fender opening we trimmed a bit of the inner sheet metal and fender liner near the pinch-weld to open up clearance when turning or flexing the truck out offroad.
