We're back and in the homestretch to set this new 2021 Ford F150 up to be a super cool, super functional, dual purpose Work & Play truck. At this point the build team has outfitted the bed with tons of accessories for the work aspect. With measurements taken and prototypes designed, its time to give this truck some extra altitude (and attitude).

Being a suspension manufacturer, and with our close association to FOX, it shouldn't be surprising this truck is well equipped and ready to perform. Using this truck as a test bed, the team prototyped several lift sizes and accessories and decided on a 4" lift height to allow fitment of 35s on this build. While there are some similarities to previous generation F150s, ultimately this kit is a redesign around the updated suspension configuration. This kit features the drop crossmembers, steering knuckles, multipoint differential relocation, sway bar correction, skid plate(s), driveline adjustment, and everything else necessary to set this truck up right. In addition, FOX brought next level capability with their 2.5 factory race series coilovers with remote DSC reservoirs up front and 2.5 factory race series DSC piggyback shocks in the rear.

From there the team fitted color-matched fender flares, wheels and tires, wired up accessories, installed exhaust, and prepped the bed for the dual purpose "recreational" features to include camping, grilling, and a cooler, along with recreational gear to include a stand up paddle board (SUP), and bike using Yakima mounts. Stay tuned for the reveal of this truck...
